  • soft lettuce leaves to serve
  • sliced jalapenos from a jar to serve
  • soured cream to serve

  • Step 1

    Butterfly the chicken breasts (cut in half horizontally and open up like a book). Put in a dish, season well and drizzle over 1 tbsp lime juice, a little olive oil and toss. Leave for 10 minutes.
