Chicken Breast w/ Lemon and Basil

This is a great, easy recipe and low cal! It is from Biba's seasonal cookbook, although I have changed it somewhat.

4 boneless, skinless chicken breast
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
juice & peel of 1 lemon
Big handful of fresh basil, chopped, app. 1/4 cup, save some for garnish
1/2 tsp salt
fresh ground black pepper

more fresh lemon juice to taste, added at the end

Marinate chicken w/ all ingredients for 1-2 hours. Pour it all into a large skillet over medium high heat and cook for 8-12 minutes, browning nicely. (If the breasts are small cook 8, big 12) Remove skillet from heat and add fresh lemon juice to taste. Place breasts and sauce on platter and garnish with more fresh basil.

This is delicious served with risotto and fresh brocolli or peas.
