Basil Chicken

4 boneless skinless chicken breast

16 fresh whole basil leaves

1/2 cup chicken broth

1/4 cups basil leaves

1 teaspoon lemon juice

1/4 teaspoon pepper

1 teaspoon mince garlic

1-3 tablespoons olive oil

With knife parallel to cutting board, cut slit along one side of each chicken breast to for a pocket. Place 4 whole basil leaves in each pocket, press each breast closed. In a small bowl combine broth, chopped bail, lemon juice, pepper and garlic, and set aside. In medium nonstick skillet heat oil over medium heat. Add chicken and brown on both sides. Pour broth mixture over the chicken and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low: cover and cook 7-8 min or until the chicken is no longer pink on the inside.

I cheated a little. Rich had to make this because messing with raw meat grosses me out and I can not do it. It sounds like a lot of work, but its really not that bad. Very moist and good!


1 lbs of cavatelli noodles

1-20oz jar of spaghetti sauce (I used light)

1 pkg of pepperpmi (I used like 1/4 of the package)

3 cups of mozz cheese

Cook the noodles according to the package.

Mix ingredients in a 10x13 baking dish.

Cover with about 2 1/2 cups of cheese

Bake on 350 for about 20-30 min.

I take it out and add a little more cheese to the top and let it melt. Its fast, easy and very good.

I'm it

My 8 ''interesting'' facts

1. I am the biggest snow bunny ever! I LOVE the snow, its so pretty

2. I hate chunks of meat, yuck. I can not eat like meatloaf, meatballs, little chucks in my pasta (or anything else) I do however love cheeseburgers and steak. I don't know what it is, but I can not do it.

3. I could eat cucumbers and pickles everyday of the week several times a day if my body and diet would let me.

4. I speed all the time. I don't mean to, I just get to thinking about things and paying attention to the other drivers, and I forget about it. But I HATE when Rich speeds drives me crazy.

5. I love to play playstaion or Nintendo with Rich, he has some great games

6. I wish I was so much better in the kitchen than I am

7. I have a slight OCD when it comes to organization. Things have to be lined up, put away right, labels facing out or up. I can not help it.

8. I HATE tomato soup. I will have it to dip my grilled cheese in, but after that I throw it out. Its so nasty.
