Chicken in Basil Cream Sauce

Chicken in Basil Cream Sauce
recipe and image from : Favorite Family Recipes

1 cup milk
1 cup Italian bread crumbs
4 chicken breasts cut into halves (8 pieces)
1/4 cup margarine
1 cup chicken broth
2 cups whipping cream
1 tsp dried basil
1/8 tsp pepper
1 cup grated parmesan cheese

Optional: I like to pound and flatten the chicken out a little so it cooks evenly throughout.
1. Place milk and bread crumbs in seperate shallow bowls. Dip chicken in milk, then coat with crumbs. 
2. In a skillet over medium heat cook chicken in butter until browned on both sides. Remove chicken from skillet and keep in a 9x13 pan in the oven on warm. 
3. Add chicken broth to skillet and stir to loosen up browned bits from pan. Stir in cream, basil, and pepper and bring to a boil. Turn heat to low and whisk in parmesan cheese. 
4. Pour sauce over the chicken and serve.

*I have made this before but forgot to post it. This chicken is SO delicious. I really, really like how simple it is and how flavorful it is! Yum! Last time I served the creamy chicken with pasta but this time I served it with wild rice and a big salad. Again, delicious!
