Chicken in Basil Cream

I love, love, love cooking!  I feel like it is a great way to express how you care about someone.  Everyone loves a good meal.  When I cook a meal for my husband, I feel like it is my way of telling him that I appreciate him.  Sometimes, the food isn't always wonderful, but it is the effort I took to prepare it for him.  The meal I am going to share today is a Pinterest meal that turned out to be a hit.   I am attaching the link because I don't always follow the recipe exactly.  A lot of times I choose to leave things out because I forgot them at the store, or it is too much effort to put it in.  I did take some pictures with this because I know sometimes this is helpful when cooking.

Ingredients:       1/4 cupMilk
1/4 cupDry bread crumbs
1 poundBoneless skinless chicken breast; 4 halves
3 tablespoonButter
1/2 cupChicken broth
1 cupHeavy cream
