    This meal takes 30 minutes - is easy, easy and looks and tastes fantastic. Dont stint on the black pepper or the garlic and the resulting sauce is fab for dunking.

    There's nothing like a yummy quick and easy recipe, and this is definately one of them! I used thinly sliced chicken breasts so this took me about 15 minutes to throw together. Will be making this again!  -  06 May 2013
