Ingredients to serve 4

  • 4 x free range chicken breasts
  • 200g x cherry tomatoes - halve
  • 3 tbsp x fresh basil pesto

Method

Step 1

Bring a saucepan of lightly salted water to the boil. Add the rice and boil gently for 15 minutes. Once cooked, drain and keep warm in a colander over a saucepan of hot water.

Step 2

Heat a few glugs of olive oil in a pan on medium to high heat. Season the chicken breasts. Place the chicken in the hot oil and cook for about 8 minutes each side, turning only once. Add the tomatoes and allow to cook until they start to soften - 3 or 4 minutes. Reduce the heat and stir in the pesto and sour cream until heated through - about 2 minutes. Serve immediately.

Step 3

Bring a saucepan of lightly salted water to the boil. Add the broccoli and boil gently for 2 to 3 minutes until cooked but still slightly crunchy. Drain and keep warm.

Step

To serve, divide the rice between the plates and serve the chicken and a generous helping of sauce on top. Scatter with fresh basil. Serve the broccoli on the side.
