Chicken in a cream basil sauce

I made this for dinner the other night and it was so good!! It was so creamy and delicious and think everybody needs to try it!

*4 boneless chicken breasts (I cut mine into strips)
*1 cup milk
*1 cup chicken broth
*2 cups heavy whipping cream
*1 cup Italian bread crumbs
*1/4 cup butter (I used a little more)
*1/2-1 c Parmesan cheese
*1 t. dried basil
*1/8 t pepper

Place milk and bread crumbs in two separate shallow containers. Dip chicken in milk then cover with bread crumbs. melt butter in a skillet and brown chicken in butter on both sides and cook till chicken is done. Remove chicken and cover with foil to keep it warm.
Add chicken broth to pan and stir to loosen up all the yummy stuff in the pan. Stir in cream, basil, and pepper and bring to a boil. Cook until thickened. Remove from heat and stir in Parmesan cheese.
*I wanted a thicker sauce so I mixed a little bit of cornstarch with water and mixed it in at the end. I served this over pasta noodles and it was super yummy!
