  • 1/4 cup minced fresh basil
  • 1/4 cup olive oil

  • CROSTINI:
  • 2 French bread baguettes (10-1/2 ounces each)

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine the first 6 ingredients. In a small bowl, whisk the oil, garlic, salt and pepper; drizzle over chicken mixture and toss to coat. Refrigerate until serving.
