This is a Skinny Chicken recipe with a creamy basil sauce that makes you feel like you've had a feast. Make this recipe up when you want to impress.
The ingredients for the sauce are pretty basic except the fat free half and half. The sauce works up fast and easy and it tastes so so good over the parmesan crusted chicken.
The fat free half and half make this sauce very creamy. The best thing about this little recipe is you can have 1/4 cup of the sauce for just 2 points+ Weight Watchers points.
The chicken is about as easy as you can ask for but the sauce over the top makes it feel and taste a little extraordinary. I hope you will take the time to try this recipe out. It would rank up there with Skinny Baked Chicken but packs some impressive taste.
Yummy! And oh so easy. It actually seems a little fancy. I hope you will like it. It is definately a recipe I will be making again and again.
