Method

  1. Finely chop the stalks from a 20g pack basil and shred most of the leaves. Heat 2 tbsp oil in a medium frying pan, then soften 2 thinly sliced garlic cloves and the basil stalks for 3 mins.
  2. Tip in 2 x 400g cans cherry tomatoes, 1 tsp sugar and the shredded basil. Bring to a boil, then simmer for 15 mins until reduced and saucy. Season. Add a handful olives, the sliced meat from a whole cooked chicken and any juices. Gently stir. Simmer for 2 mins, scatter with basil leaves, then serve with crusty bread.

This was delicious, but I did modify it a bit. I bought chicken breasts and simmered them in chicken stock for 15 minutes. I used 1 can of tomatoes, and added liquor from the simmering chicken when it looked like drying up a bit. I thought the basil/olive/garlic combination was really good. I also added some spare mushrooms.

This is not a recipe. It's simply warmed up tinned toms with some garlic and sugar! Ridiculous that GoodFood would post this on their website!

Nice but not great, a bit too much sauce for us.

Really lovely dish. I used fresh cherry tomatoes and a bit of passata and cooked for a little longer. Very nice. Clean plates all round, except for having to remove the olives off the 4 year olds plate :)
