I have to be honest, 99% of weeknight dinners in our house are salad. How boring is that? Every evening after work I ask my dear health conscious boyfriend what he wants for dinner and the answer is guaranteed to be  “Chicken Salad”, to be honest I don’t know why I even bother asking anymore.

  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 tbsp dried basil
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic crushed
  • 150 grams mushrooms chopped
  • 3 cups cherry tomatoes
  • 2 tbsp chopped fresh basil


  • Place a medium sized pan on the stove over medium-high heat and add the olive oil.
  • Coat both sides of the chicken breast with the dried basil, salt and pepper and place in the pan. It should take about 3-4 minutes per side for the chicken to develop a nice golden brown colour.
  • Once both sides are done, remove the chicken from the pan, place on a plate and set aside
  • Lower the heat to medium-low and add the garlic and diced onion. Sprinkle with a pinch of salt and place a lid on the pan
  • After 2 minutes add the two cups of cherry tomatoes and chopped mushrooms, place lid back on and let cook for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally (if it looks to be burning, lower the heat)
  • Add the chicken breasts back to the pan with the sauce and let cook for another few minutes with the lid off so the sauce can reduce
  • Sprinkle with chopped basil and serve
