Quick Chicken Supper
Simple Suppers are a winner, busy day, busy life, nobody wants to slog away in the kitchen. Try this simple chicken dish.
1 tbsp olive oil
4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
200g pack cherry tomatoes
3 tbsp pesto
3 tbsp crème fraîche
handful baby spinach
Heat the oil in a frying pan, a deep one if possible. Add the chicken and fry without moving it until it's golden brown. Turn the chicken and cook on the other side. Continue cooking for 12-15 mins until the chicken is cooked through. Season all over with salt and pepper.
Halve the tomatoes and throw them into the pan, stirring them around for a couple of minutes until they start to soften. Add the spinach and wilt it. Reduce the heat and stir in the pesto and crème fraîche until it makes a sauce. Scatter with some basil leaves, then serve with rice or mash potatoes and broccoli. Or even hunks of warm bread.
Fresh Italian Tomato Pasta Sauce
An Italian classic good with everything - Marcella Hazan's Tomato Sauce
2 pounds fresh, ripe tomatoes, skinned, or 1 tin of imported Italian tomatoes chopped - look for san marzano, they are sweeter with less seeds but any will do
5 tablespoons butter
1 medium onion, peeled and cut in half
Salt to taste
Put either the prepared fresh tomatoes or the canned in a saucepan, add the butter, onion, and salt, and cook uncovered at a very slow, but steady simmer for about 45 minutes, or until it is thickened to your liking and the fat floats free from the tomato.
Stir from time to time, mashing up any large pieces of tomato with the back of a wooden spoon.
Taste and correct for salt. Before tossing with pasta, you may remove the onion and save for another use, but many opt to leave it in. Serve with freshly grated parmigiano-reggiano cheese for the table.
