I hope someone out there can help me. I'm looking for a chicken recipe that I made last year. Unfortunately, I don't recall the year or issue it was from. I have all the Cooking Light books 1997 - 2001 and can't find the recipe.
Key things. Boneless chicken breasts, fresh basil and pine nuts were some of the ingredients. I believe the chicken was sauted on the stovetop.
Sorry for the scant information but that is all I rcall. This is driving me insane, I must find this recipe, it was SO delicious.
Does this ring a bell for anyone? Anyone?
Is this it???

Alisa, Thank you SO MUCH. I kept passing by the recipe in my books because the red pepper relish part was throwing me off.
I think I'm in love. Thank you, thank you, thank you. I am so glad I checked the board one more time before going to the grocery store.
For all interested, this recipe is excellent!
Tina- I made this the other night and you're right it is excellent! My DH didn't go for the Relish part but he still liked the spicy chicken. For presentation I made rice, than put the chicken on, and topped it off with the relish. Next time I'll just put the relish on the side as the recipe says.
Thanks, I'll be making this again!
I love this recipe too - but I don't make it often except in the summer, because of the fresh basil (too expensive in the winter). It's really easy, and I think it would be special enough for company. You could get the whole thing ready ahead of time and bake at the last minute.
Definitely give this one a try!
I buy a big bunch of basil in the summer. $1 at produce junction. Then freeze it. Enough for all winter.
I made the Spicy Chicken Breasts with Caramelized Onion-Red Pepper Relish for supper tonight and thought it was very very good. I especially liked the spice rub used for the chicken, probably the best combination I have had so far, it would be a great rub to use on chicken cooked on the grill. I will definitely have to save that rub recipe for other uses. The relish was pretty good too, but not as good as the chicken.
Thanks for posting that recipe.
