Handy Hint

Good with hot pasta mixed with shredded basil leaves, cherry tomatoes and a glug of olive oil, or with cheesy mash.

    Made this tonight. Absolutely delicious! Two adults and two young kiddies. None of us left a scrap! Thank you.

    Love this recipe. You can posh it up a bit for adults by using whole breasts, transferring to an oven dish once they're cooked in the frying pan, placing a slice of mozarella on top and metling in the oven, then serving with fresh basil sprigs. Yum.
