Chicken with Lemon and Basil Cream Sauce

This chicken dish hails from when I was working as a personal chef. The sauce was stored separate from the chicken in the refrigerator and clients could simply arrive home, warm the chicken and the sauce then dress with the fresh basil and lemon zest right before serving. I also found that the dish was one that froze well, and I would package single serving portions that could be pulled from the freezer when needed. I recommend that entrées stored in the freezer be used within 1 to 2 weeks for best results.
