This dish is about as simple as it gets. The taste is wonderful- the peppery basil flavor seeps into the chicken. Num.
2 split bone-in, skin-on chicken breasts
16-20 fresh basil leaves
Salt and pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 350. Stuff 8-10 basil leaves under the skin of each chicken breast. Add salt and pepper to taste. Cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes. Take off foil and bake, uncovered, for 30 more minutes, or until done.
