Cut the chicken breasts in half lengthways and open out to form a flat piece. Hit them gently with the palm of your hand to flatten. Season to taste and drizzle with a little olive oil.

Heat 20ml olive oil in a saucepan. Add the onion and sauté until soft. Add the remaining sauce ingredients. Simmer gently for 10 minutes.

Fry or griddle the chicken breasts for about two minutes each side, or until they are just cooked. Put the chicken into the saucepan with the sauce and coat well.

Serve on hamburger rolls with salad and accompany with chips or potato wedges.

Tip of the day

Basic basil care
Basil wilts quickly, but will perk up when left in cool water for about 30 minutes. Then blot the leaves dry and store them at room temperature in a tightly sealed bag. If basil is stored in the refrigerator, it turns black.
