Ingredients to serve 1

  • 2 x free range chicken breasts
  • 1 tbsp x butter (from your pantry)
  • 1 clove x garlic – crush, peel and chop finely
  • 2g x fresh rosemary – strip off leaves and chop
  • ⅛ tsp x peri-peri spice
  • 50g x cherry/rosa tomatoes – cut in half
  • 15ml x white wine
  • 1 x ciabatta roll
  • 20g x salad leaves
  • ¼ x cucumber - slice
  • ½ tbsp x balsamic vinegar
  • . x olive oil, salt and pepper (from your pantry)

Method

Step 1

Preheat oven grill. Prepare all ingredients as indicated above.

Step 2

Butterfly the chicken breasts. Here’s how: place each chicken breast on a chopping board. Hold your one hand on top of the breast. Now slice the breast ALMOST completely in half horizontally with a sharp knife. Stop cutting about 2cm from the end. Then open the breast up like a book. Repeat with remaining chicken. Season well all over.

Step 3

Place a dry frying pan over high heat until it starts to smoke. Add a small glug of olive oil and sear the chicken breasts in the pan – about 1 minute on each side. They should be nice and brown but not cooked through yet. The chicken breasts should NOT overlap in the pan – cook in batches if your pan is not big enough. Remove from pan and set aside.

Step 4

Keep the same pan on the stove over medium heat. Melt the butter and then sauté the garlic and rosemary for about a minute. Turn the heat up a little (medium to high) and add the peri-peri spice and cherry tomatoes and stir-fry until tomatoes begin to soften – about 4 to 5 minutes. Pour in the wine and simmer (boil gently) for about 5 minutes until it reduces by half. Return chicken breasts to the pan and cook for 5 minutes more, turning once to coat chicken all over.

Step 5

Cut the ciabatta roll in half and toast under a hot grill. Butter if desired.

Step 6

Toss salad leaves and cucumber and dress with balsamic vinegar and olive oil. Season well.

Step 7

To serve, pile chicken breasts onto the roll and spoon over sauce. Serve salad on the side.
