This quick-as-a-flash chicken is really tasty. We like to serve it with green beans and rosemary roasted potatoes, but it's just as nice with salad.


  • 1 chicken breast

  • 2 tbsp olive oil

  • ½ lemon, juice only

  • salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

  • 5 tbsp white wine

  • knob of butter

  • pinch of flour

  • green beans, cooked


  • 1.

    Flatten the chicken breast with a meat mallet or rolling pin between two sheets of cling film. Fry the chicken in the olive oil for three minutes each side.

  • 2.

    Add the lemon juice and salt and pepper. Add the white wine and reduce for 30 seconds.

  • 3.

    Coat the knob of butter in flour, and drop in the mixture to thicken. Remove the chicken and serve with green beans.
