  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Gather all ingredients, kitchen tools & equipment together. (Recommended equipment: Chef's knife, cutting board, citrus zester, citrus juicer, measuring cups & spoons, small saute pan, 6"x8" baking pan with lid.)

Extra Tips for this Recipe

This dish is excellent when served with pasta. Add some steamed broccoli or sauteed spinach and a nice, green salad for a balanced meal. This recipe is quick and easy to prepare but your guests will think you spent hours slaving over the stove.

You may use dried basil as a substitute for fresh but there will be a substantial loss of flavor.

The sauce is tart, test it and thin it out with a little water or chicken stock if it's too tart for your taste.
