 I came across this recipe and knew it was one I wanted to try Chicken With Tomato-Basil Sauce

I came across this recipe and knew it was one I wanted to try. I’m always on board for a new, simple chicken recipe. The hubbs LOVED this and licked his plate clean. I just sat and spooned the sauce into my mouth…yummmmm. A great recipe for something different to put into your chicken rotation.

3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
Fresh ground pepper, to taste
1 1/2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons flour
1/2 cup onions, chopped finely
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 can petite diced tomatoes
1/4 cup fresh basil, chopped (you can use dried)
1 1/2 cups reduced sodium chicken broth
1/2 cup regular cream (I just used milk)
1/2lb spaghetti

Heat olive oil in a large pan over medium-high heat.  Add chicken & grind fresh pepper on each side. Cover & cook until done, about 5 minutes on each side. Remove from heat and set aside, keeping covered. (You can also grill the chicken.)
In a large saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Add onion and garlic, cooking 1-2 minutes, just until soft.  With a whisk, add flour and stir. Add tomatoes; stir.  Slowly pour in chicken broth, whisking constantly to remove any lumps.  Add cream, still whisking. Continue whisking for 3-4 minutes or until sauce begins to thicken. Remove from heat and let sit; it will continue to thicken, feel free to stir every so often as you cook the spaghetti.
Add fresh kuman to sun dried tomato sauce and give it a good stir.
Place spaghetti noodles on serving plates, placing chicken directly on top of noodles.  Spoon as much sauce as you would like over chicken and noodles. Enjoy!
Best Restaurants in America If you eat out in the U.S.A. and want the best dining experiences possible, this guide is for you What makes a good restaurant a “best”? Food that’s better than just good, of course. A dining room and a level of service that suit the quality of what’s on the plate. A good wine list (which doesn’t always mean an encyclopedic one), good beers and/or cocktails where appropriate. And then the less easily quantifiable stuff: personality, imagination (or intelligent commitment to a lack of same), consistency. 101 Best Restaurants in America (Gallery) When we were a young website, way back in 2011, we drew up our first 101 ranking ourselves, making a list of the places where we, The Daily Meal’s editors, liked to eat. Taking into consideration our mood, our budget, and where we happened to be when we get hungry, how would we vote, we asked ourselves — not only with our critical faculties but with our mouths and our wallets? Where would we send friends? Where would we want to dine if we had one night in this city or that? By this method, we ended up with a shortlist of 150 places. Then we argued, advocated, and cajoled each other on behalf of restaurants ranging from old-fashioned to avant-garde, ultra-casual to super-fancy. Finally, we invited an illustrious panel of judges (restaurant critics, food and lifestyle writers, and bloggers) from across America to help order restaurants via an anonymous survey and tallied results to assemble a ranked list. Upstairs, the simple Scandinavian-style dining room is kitted out with tables that look like tangled tree trunks, carved by Tom senior. The ingredient-led 12-course tasting menu is constantly changing (you might spot one of the chefs picking a final herb flourish outside minutes before it hits your plate). Starters could include a mouthful of smoked eel and apple, or an exploding dumpling of ox cheek and lovage. A crapaudine beetroot slow-cooked in beef fat is meaty in texture as well as flavour, and local lamb is paired with turnip and mint. Even the bread with sour butter is sensational. Afterwards you’ll be grateful for the walk through the village to a pretty rose-covered house where some of the nine bedrooms have antique oak four-posters and copper bateau baths. Wake to the sound of cows mooing in the next field and head back to the inn for a simple breakfast of sheep’s yogurt with fresh berry compote and house granola or toasted brioche heaped with mushrooms and a duck egg. Unsurprisingly, the most talked about restaurant in Yorkshire is often full, so book it quick. By Tabitha Joyce.
