Cheese Ravioli with Creamy Chicken and Basil Sauce!

By: Kecia’s Flavor Breakthrough!

Created: July 21, 2014

Left over chicken tonight! It is one of those things, trying to create something new, different and tasty for the family when using left over chicken. The one I roasted yesterday had a lot of lemon in it, I think it will be fantastic with the creamy basil sauce!

Serves: 4

  1. This is SO quick and easy! What a perfect weeknight meal! I ALWAYS, ALWAYS, ALWAYS make extra chicken just so I can use the leftovers in a simple and DELICIOUS meal like this! I love the fresh basil with the lemony chicken!
