    Cook's tips

    To butterfly the chicken: place the chicken fillets on a chopping board and remove each inner fillet. Then, using a knife parallel to the chopping board, carefully slice each breast in half widthways, keeping the edge intact. Open the breast out along the fold.

    Drinks recommendation

    New World Chardonnays often have ripe, tropical fruit flavours which lend themselves well to fuller textured meals, try Robert Mondavi Woodbridge Chardonnay 2007, California, USA
