    Ingredients

    • For the relish
    • 1 sweet onion
    • 2 tomatoes
    • 50g pitted black olives
    • 1 red chilli, finely chopped
    • 3 tablespoons roughly chopped flat leaf parsley
    • Juice of 1/2 a lemon
    • 2 tablespoons olive oil

    Method

    • First make the relish. Chop the sweet onion, tomatoes and black olives into fairly chunky pieces and put into a bowl. Add the chilli, parsley, lemon juice and olive oil. Mix together and add salt and pepper to taste.

    • Place the chicken breasts between two pieces of cling film and beat it with a wooden rolling pin to flatten it out a little.

    • Brush the chicken with the oil and season with salt and pepper. Heat the barbecue or a heavy-based ridged frying pan until very hot and cook the chicken, skin side down, for about 5 minutes. Then turn it over and cook for a further 5 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through and the juices run clear.

    • Serve the chicken with the relish on the side.
