    1. Combine tomatoes, spinach, olives, capers and crushed chilli flakes in a bowl. Sprinkle both sides of chicken breasts with black pepper.
    2. Heat oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Cook the chicken breasts until browned on one side, 2 to 4 minutes. Turn it over; top with the tomato mixture. Reduce heat to medium, cover and cook until cooked through, 3 to 5 minutes.


    If you can't find thin chicken breasts for this recipe, place thick chicken breasts between 2 pieces of cling film and pound with a rolling pin or heavy pan until flattened to about 1cm thick.
