Summer-in-winter chicken

Summer-in-winter chicken

Ingredients (4 servings):

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 200g pack cherry tomatoes
  • 3 tbsp pesto
  • 3 tbsp crème fraîche (half fat is fine)
  • Fresh basil, if you have it



  1. Heat the oil in a frying pan, preferably non-stick. Add the chicken and fry without moving it until it takes on a bit of colour. Turn the chicken and cook on the other side. Continue cooking for 12-15 mins until the chicken is cooked through. Season all over with a little salt and pepper.
  2. Halve the tomatoes and throw them into the pan, stirring them around for a couple of minutes until they start to soften.
  3. Reduce the heat and stir in the pesto and crème fraîche until it makes a sauce.
  4. Scatter with a few basil leaves if you have them, then serve with wild or brown rice and salad.
