A rustic chicken dish with sweet cherry tomatoes and a herby sauce
  • 1 large chicken breast
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, sliced in halves
  • half of a large sweet onion- chopped
  • 1 cup chopped mushrooms
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon thyme
  • Salt and pepper to taste.
  1. Salt and pepper your chicken generously on both sides. I used Cameroon pepper, but black pepper would be just as good a choice.
  2. Heat a sauté pan and put your heat on medium high.
  3. Add the olive oil and the thyme. Toast the thyme for about 30 seconds
  4. Add the chicken to the pan
  5. Brown the chicken on both sides, about 4-5 mins per side.
  6. The chicken is not cooked through at this point, but set it aside on a plate.
  7. In the same pan, add a little more olive oil and all the onion.
  8. Sauté until translucent, then add the mushrooms, sprinkle with salt.
  9. Sauté for about two minutes.
  10. Add cherry tomatoes to the pan and stir everything for about a minute. Add an extra sprinkle of thyme
  11. Make a space in the centre of the pan and add the chicken back to the pan.
  12. Add all the residual juices as well.
  13. Reduce the heat to medium low.
  14. Allow the chicken to simmer in the sauce for 10-15 minutes covered until the chicken is fully cooked
  15. Taste and adjust the salt and pepper to your liking.
  16. Eat as a meal with a side salad or serve over rice!
