This recipe uses fresh beans, tomatoes, capsicum and basil all picked from the summer garden. This perfect combination is no coincidence; a reminder that Mother Nature knows what she is doing.


  • Olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic, chopped finely
  • 1 small red onion, chopped finely
  • 8 thigh chicken fillets (boneless) halved
  • 3-4 fresh ripe tomatoes, blanched, peeled and chopped
  • (or you can use 1 can peeled tomatoes)
  • 1 red capsicum, sliced
  • 300g green beans, washed, topped and tailed
  • Salt, pepper
  • Basil leaves, handful


  1. Heat a little olive oil in a large frying pan with a lid. Add the garlic and onion and cook for a minute.
  2.  Then add the chicken fillets and cook for a minute on each side
  3.   Add tomatoes and turn the chicken ensuring it is well coated with all the tomatoes. Season with a  pinch of salt and a few grinds of pepper. Place lid on frypan and cook for 5 minutes on low heat.
