"Serve a 5-minute delicious, easy, and healthy dinner with these Dump-and-Bake Basil Chicken Breasts! The tender, juicy chicken cooks in a flavorful white wine, Dijon, and fresh basil sauce for a versatile, low-calorie, and high-protein weeknight meal! Humble chicken breasts get a major upgrade in this fancy-tasting dinner that's perfect for your laziest days! Trust me, friends...the secret is in the sauce... White wine and Dijon mustard give the meat a rich, sophisticated flavor; a touch of honey adds an underlying sweetness; and plenty of herbs lend a fresh zip to this simple meal! While the basil chicken breasts seem fancy enough to serve at your next dinner party, they can also be whisked together in about 5 minutes for a quick last-minute dish. The entree pairs perfectly with rice, couscous, buttered noodles, pesto pasta, or just a hearty loaf of crusty bread for soaking up the pan sauce! Keep it simple, keep it easy, and enjoy a fresh, healthy, and satisfying twist on your regular chicken breasts for dinner!"

As the author of this Dump-and-Bake Basil Chicken Breasts recipe stated "the secret is in the sauce", and it truly is. The combination of ingredients turns into a sauce that is unlike anything you have ever tasted before. I am so glad I took a chance with this recipe. It is truly a taste sensation, AND a one pot wonder. I served it over rice to take advantage of all that wonderful sauce.
