Recipe tip: The easiest method for flattening the chicken is bashing it with a rolling pin.


  • olive oil
  • 2 red peppers, seeded and sliced
  • 1 clove garlic, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 2 anchovies, roughly chopped
  • a small bunch flat-leaf parsley, roughly chopped
  • 1 lemon, halved
  • 2 skinless chicken breast fillets


  • STEP 1

    Heat a little olive oil and fry the red peppers until they are soft and toasted at the edges. Add the garlic and stir, then add the anchovies and cook for 5 minutes before stirring through the parsley and squeezing over some lemon. Season.

  • STEP 2

    Meanwhile, halve the chicken fillets horizontally, put them between sheets of cling film and bash them out with a rolling pin until thin. Brush with oil, season well and then fry until just cooked through. Squeeze over the remaining lemon and serve with the peppers.
