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.
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.
