"I'm an attorney and my husband is an architect, so our careers keep our schedules busy," writes Barbara Rokow of Geneva, New York. "This easy chicken entree seasoned with basil is great for the weeknight rush. I serve it with broccoli and Parmesan noodles."

    My family and I love these quick and flavorful chicken strips. They are a nice change from crispy chicken strips.

    I was a bit nervous about what the red wine vinegar would do to the flavor, but it was delicious! It cooked up very tender and my family loved it.

    This was pretty good chicken. I doubled the recipe but only used 4.5 tbsp butter since it just seemed like too much butter and it was good just like that. My kids ate it all!
