This is wonderful! The sauce is divine! I would double the sauce so you have enough to drizzle on a side of pasta. I pounded the chicken breasts so they weren't so thick, used half & half to cut down on the fat (just let it cook a little longer so it thickens), and used seasoned bread crumbs for better flavor. Also added 2-3 garlic cloves to the sauce. I would stick with fresh basil for best flavor - it really does make a difference. Scrumptious!

This was a very tasty recipe. I altered the sauce recipe slightly because I wanted to season a whole box of pasta with it. I used a whole 14oz can of chicken broth, 1 cup of Parmesan, 1/2 cup fresh basil, and I kept the cream the same at 1 cup. When I made this, I let the sauce boil for 5 minute or so, constantly stirring it so that it wouldn't burn, to thicken it up a bit. This made the perfect amount for an entire box of penne pasta without being too thick or too runny. It was incredibly tasty, and I'll definitely be making this again!

Me and my husband absolutely LOVED this recipé. We loved the cream sauce the best. My husband kept on raving about it and said to make it again very soon. I served this over egg noodles. I didn't have chicken on hand and used pork cutlets and it was just as delicious. I also added garlic and scallions to the pan while cooking the pork (chicken) and also added a clove of crushed garlic to the cream sauce. (I substituted light heavy cream instead of regular heavy cream which didn't seem to make any difference in taste at all). EXCELLENT !!!!!!!!! (it made me look like a chef in the making) :)
