I am anxiously awaiting Spring ...and my herbs and flowers~(Anticipation)
The grocery store helps with both in February~
Basil is my favorite..I 'm sorry Rosemary you're almost it..and Sage..you're close..and Thyme too~ But Basil ..is the best~
I have had this recipe forever..have you ever made Boursin Chicken?
You can make your own Boursin or have it on hand like I did the day of the basil..
Through a delightful correspondence of the most friendly kind..I had in my posession..this spice I wanted to try with the chicken..
It's from France~ Ronelle~ My French Kitchen~♥
So..Don a pretty apron..
And try it out of you haven't already..it's one of those keeper recipes..I wish I had had it as a new bride~
Chicken breasts..I used 2..flattened..
Season each side w/ salt and pepper..and if you can find this delicious spice..do it:)~
Make a mixture of crushed toasted pecans and Boursin cheese.
Lay flat leaves of basil on your chicken and top w/ boursin mixture..I used about 2 tbsps on each..the breasts were large..
You can do it the other way around also I suppose~
Roll up and coat in home made breadcrumbs.
Bake at 350 degrees for ap 40 mins..until juices run clear.
Slice in rondelles..they are pretty and serve over pasta.. or rice..
I had made a mushroom sauce w/ dried and fresh mushrooms to go over it~
It was really good:)
Easy for entertaining also~
Correspondence is becoming a lost art..I am still so partial to it~
Seeing someone's handwriting.. feeling the paper.. just the whole moment of it all brings you closer~
