Lemon-Basil Chicken with Basil Aioli

Don’t you just love getting delicious recipes in your inbox? I know I certainly do… 🙂

This one seems easy enough for a non~gourmet, I rarely cook kinda person (yea, I talking about moi)~

This Lemon Basil Chicky Babe is from Cooking Light.com. Since I’ve been laid off, I’m trying to watch the caloric in-take..as I’m at the house ALOT more now a days! I really do need to get out with my puppy dog and walk, as he’s getting lazy, not to mention VERY spoiled having mommy at home!

4 servings (serving size: 1 chicken breast half and 1 tablespoon aioli)


  • Chicken:
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh basil
  • 1/3 cup chopped green onions
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 (6-ounce) skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
  • Cooking spray
  • Basil Aioli:
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped fresh basil
  • 2 tablespoons low-fat mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 3/4 teaspoon bottled minced garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon olive oil


  • To prepare chicken, combine first 6 ingredients in a large bowl. Add chicken to basil mixture, turning to coat.
  • Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add chicken to pan; cook 8 minutes on each side or until done.
  • While chicken cooks, prepare aioli. Combine 1/4 cup basil and remaining ingredients in a small bowl, stirring with a whisk. Serve with chicken.

This is on my agenda for the weekend!!! Happy Cooking!

  1. Treating myself to blog hopping today, just popped over from Katherines Corner. TFS this recipe looks fantastic. I was made redundant 8 mths ago and my dogs are so spoilt, don’t think I can return to work they won’t let me. I try to walk them every day, well they insist but I’ve got today off because I’ve got a cold and I’m not going out. Will enjoy your recipe tonight. Thanks again. Take care.

  2. Hi! I saw you on Jackies post. I am a food blogger and field editor for Taste of Home magazine, and i think this looks wonderful! It’s healthy,packed fullof flavor, and pretty. 🙂 Great job!
