  • 4 large skinless chicken breast fillets
  • 50g/2oz garlic butter, softened
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh coriander leaves
  • 1 tablespoon sunflower oil
  • finely grated zest and juice of 2 limes
  • 25g/1oz Demerara sugar


  • Put each chicken breast between two sheets of cling film, and pound
    with a rolling pin until flattened to about 1cm/1⁄2in thick.
  • Mix together the garlic butter and coriander, and spread over each
    chicken breast. Roll the chicken up like a Swiss roll and secure with a
    cocktail stick.
  • Heat a wok or heavy frying pan until hot. Add the oil, and when it is hot
    enough, add the chicken and cook, turning, for 15–20 minutes until
    cooked through.
  • Remove the chicken from the wok or pan, and transfer to a chopping
    board. Loosely cover with foil to rest for a few minutes, then cut each
    chicken roll into slices.
  • Add the lime zest, juice and sugar to the wok and heat gently, stirring,
    until the sugar has dissolved. Increase the heat and allow to bubble for
    2 minutes.
  • Arrange the chicken slices on warmed individual serving plates, and
    spoon the pan juices over to serve. Serve warm with boiled rice.
