A basil puree makes a quick sauce for this fast spring supper of Bacon-Wrapped Chicken with Basil Lima Beans.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 425°. Process first 4 ingredients and 1 tsp. salt in a blender until smooth. Cook limas according to package directions; cool 5 minutes.

Step 3

Sprinkle chicken with pepper and remaining 1/2 tsp. salt. Wrap each breast with 2 pieces of bacon. Cook chicken in 2 Tbsp. hot oil in an ovenproof skillet over medium heat 5 minutes or until bacon begins to brown. Turn chicken.

Wow! I love the flavor combinations in this delicious recipe. Very fresh with the onion and basil, smoky goodness with the bacon.
