Drizzle with remaining dressing; sprinkle with basil.
Prepare using bone-in chicken breasts and increasing the initial chicken cooking time to 12 to 15 min. on each side or until chicken is done.
Using a Dial Instant-Read Food Thermometer
An instant-read food thermometer measures the temperature of a food in about 15 to 20 sec. It is not designed to remain in the food while it is cooking, but should be used near the end of the cooking time. For accurate temperature measurement, the probe of the thermometer should be inserted 2 to 2-1/2 inches deep into the thickest part of the food. If measuring the temperature of a thin food, such as a ground beef patty or boneless chicken breast, the probe should be inserted through the side of the food.
