Recipe Ingredients for Basil Chicken

2 tbsp. minced garlic
1 tbsp. salad oil
2 boneless, skinless chicken breast
1 cup basil leaves
3 tbsp. lemon juice
3 tbsp. water
1 tbsp. soy sauce
1 tbsp. sugar
1/2 tsp. pepper

Recipe Directions for Basil Chicken

Pound chicken to 1/2″ thickness. Combine garlic and oil in a skillet. Stir often over medium-high heat until garlic is golden, 3 to 4 minutes. With a slotted spoon, transfer garlic to a small bowl. Add chicken to pan. Cook, turning to lightly brown on both sides, about 5 minutes. Cut basil leaves into thin slivers. Add 1/2 cup basil to pan, along with garlic and remaining ingredients. Cover and simmer until chicken is white in center of thickest part, 6 to 7 minutes, spooning juices over chicken often. Transfer chicken to a platter; keep warm. Boil pan juices, uncovered, over high heat until reduced to 1/4 cup. Stir in remaining sliced basil and pour over chicken.
