SO MUCH BASIL: Lemon Basil Tomato Chicken + Asian Style Broc Slaw Salad

 
So I have started a little garden in my apartment #urbangarden. I have a basil, rosemary, lavender and parsley plant in addition to several succulents! So many herbs everywhere! Our basil plant was growing everywhere so I decided to use a whole bunch in some easy to make chicken. The chicken was really flavorful and moist!  I hope you like it as much as Eric and I did!

Asian Style Broc Slaw Salad
 
Ingredients:
Salad
Broc Slaw Salad (sold in most grocery stores)
Cherry Tomatoes, halved
2 Baby White Onions, chopped
1 Bell Pepper, any color, chopped
Asian Dressing
1/2 teaspoon of garlic salt
3 leaves parsley, chopped

PS. I have also used this dressing for my massaged kale salad (yes, we massage it with olive oil to break it down a bit) with blueberry Craisins and pine nuts. DELICIOUS!
