Ingredients

  • 2 skinless chicken breast fillets
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • from 2 sprigs thyme leaves
  • olive oil
  • lemon, ½ cut into wedges
  • 2 slices crusty bread, toasted
  • to serve rocket

Method

  • STEP 1

    Make a deep cut into one side of each chicken breast and open it out like a book. Put a layer of clingfilm on top, then press down to flatten them further. Mix the garlic and thyme leaves with 2 tsp olive oil and spread over the chicken.

  • STEP 2

    Heat a non-stick frying pan and fry the chicken for 1-2 minutes on each side until cooked through (you shouldn’t need any more oil). Pour over the lemon juice and season well. Put each chicken breast on a slice of toast and top with the rocket. Serve with a lemon wedge and drizzle over any pan juices.
