      With a wonderful combination of flavors this has great potential - good bones - but needs to be tweaked slightly for great results. The marinated chicken was just spectacular with the combination of lemon, basil and garlic well balanced and tangy. That said the marinade was just not enough to carry the same great flavors into the sauce itself making a little dull in contrast to the meat. The sauce was so mild the flavors were dwarfed by the mushrooms and celery which completed rather than blending in. I think this would easily be handled by adding more lemon (juice and zest), basil and garlic in similar proportions to the sauce itself. Thanks. Made for Photo Tag.
