Cook Like a Star, All Stars ~ Donna Hay's Chicken with Cherry Tomatoes with Capers Sauce

 Another quick and simple chicken dish
from Donna Hay's Simple Essentials ~ Chicken

using instead of chicken fillets,
*one poached chicken thigh, tear into thick strips
*a clove of garlic, minced
*a teaspoon capers, drained and rinsed
*cherry tomatoes, halved
*a bunch of sweet basil leaves
*salt and pepper

(if using chicken fillet, fry on both sides until cooked true)
I gave the poached chicken strips a quick heat through in a little oil
remove from pan and keep warm
sauted the garlic, capers
add the tomatoes, cook till caramelized
salt and pepper
return the chicken to the pan
toss to coat, turn off heat
stir in the basil leaves and serve

  3. Hi Emily,
