Citrus Basil Chicken or Fish

(picture from google images)

I love to cook with basil.
I love to cook with citrus.
Especially Lemons and Limes.
So, standing over my Basil plant the other day, I decided I needed basil and citrus for dinner.
Here's what I came up with:

2 chicken breasts sliced in half (like fillets) or two fish fillets
About 2 Tbsp honey or Agave Nectar (which is much like honey)
Juice from 2 lemons or 2 limes (I tried both at separate meals...both great!)
About 8-10 FRESH Basil leaves
Salt & Pepper to taste

Put all ingredients in a bowl and mix together until well coated
Pour all ingredients into a tinfoil lined pan
Place under BROILER in the oven for 3 sets of 10-12 minutes--
--after each set turn the chicken/fish over and baste with juices

Serve with a fresh salad, steamed veggies, rice, fresh rolls, whatever.
Its delicious and a new favorite at our house!
