Tomato Basil Chicken

Brief Description

Tomato Basil Chicken is a simple but flavorful HCG Phase 1 recipe. Cooking with fresh herbs is the key to truly flavorful food. You could easily start a small pot of freshly grown herbs on your windowsill or a larger container herb garden for a patio. Potted herbs can be purchased at Trader Joe’s and other supermarkets and can be transplanted into several small planter containers or one larger container. Basil is a favorite herb and works well with Italian-style meals.
