  • 4 thin chicken thighs you could also use breasts sliced thinly
  • 2 tbsp  butter or ghee
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes sliced in half
  • 4 large basil leaves sliced
  • 2 garlic cloves minced


  • Heat whichever fat you choose over medium-high heat.
  • Add the tomatoes to the pan for about two minutes, or until they begin to soften.
  • Add the chicken, making sure it's touching the pan.
  • Cook the chicken for about 3 minutes on both sides, depending on the thickness.
  • During the last minute or so of cooking, add the basil and garlic. Give it a toss.
  • How easy is that?! And it's so tasty!


I had it with a side of cauliflower (pre-cooked) that I heated up with a lot of butter. You can make whichever side you like, green beans, cheesy broccoli, mashed sweet potatoes, white rice with butter, whatever floats your boat.
