  1. Heat olive oil in a pan over medium high heat. Add the chicken breast fillets, then season with salt and pepper. Cook till browned, about 5 to 8 minutes on each side. When the chicken breast fillets are no longer pink in the centre, remove from the pan and keep warm.
  2. Pluck off the leaves of sage and add them to the pan with the butter, bacon, balsamic vinegar, maple syrup and chopped hazelnuts. Bring to the boil and let simmer for a few minutes, stirring regularly. Season with salt and pepper and pour over the chicken breast fillets. Serve.
