Lemon Basil Chicken and Rice

I love this recipe! I believe it originally came from Southern Living. You can cook the chicken breasts whole, but it's so much quicker to cut them into bite-size pieces before cooking!

Lemon Basil Chicken and Rice

1/2 cup lemon juice
1/2 cup olive oil
1/2 cup chopped basil
3 chopped green onions
2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
1/2 tsp pepper
Chicken Breasts
1 tablespoon hot oil
Hot cooked rice

Whisk together first 6 ingredients in a large bowl, blending well. Add chicken and chill for 40 minutes, turning occasionally. Cook the chicken in 1 Tbsp oil in a large skillet for 5 minutes on each side until golden brown. Pour reserved marinade through a wire, mesh strainer into skillet. Reduce heat to med-low, cover and simmer 8-10 minutes until chicken is done. Serve over hot cooked rice and enjoy!!!
