Introduction

I just made this one up based on what I had in the kitchen and the need to make something italian-inspired to go with CAL's flat breads to which I added a heaped tbsp of mixed herbs. I did not want to stop eating this one!

  • Additional Information

    I made the flat-breads to go with this meal and once they were cooked, drowned them in garlic butter - 1tbsp butter, 1tbsp olive oil, 3 cloves of garlic gently, gently cooked until softened and fragrant, then stir in some rosemary and sea salt. Spread over your breads and put in the oven on low whilst the chicken cooks. Sensational as it stands but I concede an easier option for some would be a bowl of pasta - I'll leave that one up to you!
