Number of Servings: 4


    20 oz Chicken Breast
    4 cloves Garlic
    2 tbsp Olive OIl
    3 c 1% Milk
    1/2 c Flour
    1 c fresh chopped Basil
    Salt and Pepper to taste (NOT in nutritional info)


Chop chicken breasts into small pieces - about 1/2" square - or as you like it. Chop garlic. Heat olive oil in a large skillet. Add garlic and chicken; cook over medium-high heat until chicken is golden-brown.

Combine milk and flour so that there are no clumps (I just used an egg beater and a lot of hand power - a blender or mixer might work faster). Chop basil. Add milk, flour, and basil to chicken. Simmer for about 20 minutes or until thickened. Will thicken additionally as it cools.

I had it over macaroni noodles - would be great over almost any kind of pasta, or over biscuits. Other additions that might taste good would be tomato or mushrooms.

Makes about four servings - sorry, I don't remember about how much that measured out to; I'll have to measure it next time I make it.
