This is a great summer meal that cooks quickly and goes with most anything!  I love the freshness of the lemon and basil and the fact that its a light dinner choice!  Use leftovers on a salad for lunch!

Light Lemon Chicken

(serves 4)

Canola or olive oil spray

About 1 pound of boneless skinless chicken breast strips

2 teaspoons of olive oil

2-3 tablespoons of lemon juice (I like a little extra zing!)

2 teaspoons of dried basil

sea salt and pepper to taste

In a small bowl combine olive oil, lemon juice, and dried basil.

Heat a large skillet over medium high heat and spray with canola or olive oil.

Cook chicken breast strips until cooked through and lightly browned on both sides.  When cooked, spoon sauce over chicken and season with salt and pepper.  Cook for an additional 1-2 minutes over low heat and serve immediately.
