Chicken Breast with Basil Sauce and PaprikaAlthough I always try to make chicken breast with added items in a platter, this time it's a standalone recipe that will liven up your taste buds. Fresh basil is one of the primary ingredients of this recipe. Good quality extra virgin olive oil is also required to get the best results. Similarly, sun-dried red chilies can add original flavor to this delicious chicken preparation. Make mildly flavored rice with this recipe and serve with a quality red wine to complete the main course. You can repeat the same process for duck and turkey as well provided you add some more seasoning. If leftovers are refrigerated, microwave them before serving, the very next day. Let's quickly make this tasty recipe.
