Basil and Balsamic Glazed Chicken

Use fresh basil in your world tonight to liven up your meal and your sex life! A little goes a long way; it not only adds fresh flavour, but it could also enhance sexual desire by increasing heart rate and improving blood flow! Who knew? And the added benefit of honey in this dish is that it’s rich in B vitamins, supporting testosterone production, which can increase male desire. And for the female, it contains the boron used in estrogen production! A win-win with your honey!
