A simple, quick and very tasty dinner!
one chicken breast
a handful of cherry tomatoes
basil leaves tossed through at the end and to garnish
Simply heat some olive oil in a pan on a medium - hight heat and sear the chicken for two minutes then turn the heat down to medium and cook for 5 minutes. Turn over and cook for another 4-5 minutes.
To check if the chicken’s cooked insert a knife into the thickest part of the chicken and if the liquid that comes out is pink tinged then the chicken isn’t ready however if it’s clear then it’s ready. Take the chicken out and allow it to rest until you’re ready to plate up. This allows the juices in the chicken to settle.
Chop the garlic and add it to the pan when they begin to sauté add the tomatoes and quickly cook on a high heat until they blister. Then toss the basil through the tomatoes and plate up!
As I said this is very simple so you can experiment and change it however you want, though let’s be honest tomatoes and basil is a pretty unbeatable combination.
