Day 6 - Curried-Basil Chicken

2 tablespoons olive oil
4 large boneless skinless chicken breast halves
salt to taste
black pepper to taste
1 garlic clove chopped
1/3 cup heavy cream
1 1/2 teaspoons curry powder
2 tablespoons dried basil
4 large romaine lettuce leaves

Heat olive oil in a large skillet, and add chicken.  Sprinkle with salt and pepper and cook or about 3 minutes.
Next add the garlic and cook for about 30 more seconds.
Add in 1/4 cup of cream and 2 tablespoons water.  Lower the heat to medium strength, cover, and let it simmer for about 6 minutes or until the chicken is thoroughly cooked.

Lay the chicken on a plate, and set aside.
Add the remaining cream and curry powder.  Bring to a simmer.
Add basil, salt and pepper.

Put the chicken pieces on the lettuce leaves,  pour the sauce over top and serve.


Mom - LOVE the curry and basil seasoning.
Dad - The flavor of the sauce had a nice flavor.


For dessert I used one of those Jell-O mixes for the dessert Temptations, Boston Creme Pie flavor.  It was VERY good.  It wasn't a sugar free dessert, but didn't have THAT much sugar.  And plus, it's Friday night.  You gotta get a little crazy.
