Ingredients

4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1/3 cup basil, chopped
1 tsp minced garlic
1 tsp lemon juice
1 tsp olive oil
1/2 onion, coarsely chopped
3 green onions, sliced
1/4 tsp salt
fresh ground black pepper, to taste


Combine basil, garlic, lemon juice, and olive oil in a large bowl. Finely dice about a third of the chopped onion and add to basil mixture. Sprinkle chicken breasts with salt and place in basil mixture, turning to coat.


In a large non-stick skillet coated in oil or cooking spray over medium heat, arrange coated chicken breasts and top with any remaining basil mixture. Cook 8-10 minutes on each side, or until chicken is well browned and cooked through.


Add remaining chopped onion and green onions to skillet. Saute with chicken, scrapping any browned bits from the pan, until golden. Remove from heat and serve chicken breasts topped with sauteed onion mixture. Season with pepper as desired.

I wanted to make a simple dish the other night, and this is what I came up with.
