    Dear Chef, In Saudi Arabia it is very difficult to get fresh basil. We have mint of many types and I was wondering what can I use to replace basil. Note, we have dried basil only. Thank you so much. Iman

    Hi! I've bought dried basil, ground. Will that do? If not, in what recipe or dish could I use it? It was so cheap that's why I bought it.. X'D

    I LOVE pesto! I usually add a squeeze of lemon juice to mine. I make an enormous batch in the summertime and pop it all in the freezer, so I can have fresh pesto even in the winter (here in the states). Sometimes I freeze it in ice cube trays so I can have individual-sized portions.

    You should brown the chicken longer, it would taste a lot more flavourful.
