Chef's Tips

For that extra kick of flavour, baste the breasts occasionally with their own liquid and sauce that are in the pan during cooking. Before serving, you should always allow a decent amount of resting time so the breasts are completely marinated.

To add some colour to the dish, you could always add your greens…asparagus and tenderloin broccoli being our favourites.
