The Perfect “digs meal” – Designed to Impress  

Chicken with cherry tomatoes and Crème Fraiche

Serves 2

2 tbsp. olive oil

2 chicken breast fillets, trimmed of fat and skin

225g cherry tomatoes (if you keep them on the stem it will look even smarter)

1 ½ tbsp. low-fat crème fraiche

1 tbsp. basil leaves, chopped or roughly torn

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 200°c
  2. Pour the oil into a shallow flameproof and ovenproof dish and add the chicken breasts, turning to coat in oil.
  3. Place the whole cherry tomatoes around the chicken in the dish and cook in the oven for 50-60 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through, basting occasionally
  4. Place the dish on the hob and add the crème fraiche. Heat gently until it starts to bubble, then simmer for a moment until the sauce thickens.
  5. Stir in basil, if using

To really impress, you can serve with small boiled baby new potatoes – delicious mashed, or 1 small baked potato and a large green salad.
