    Garlic, 2 cloves (finely chopped or crushed)
    Peppers, hot chile, red, raw, 1 pepper, 45 gram(s) (remove seeds for less heat)
    Canned Tomatoes, 1 can (Substitute 1lb fresh Roma tomatoes when available for better flavor and lower salt)

2 Wipe the chicken breasts with paper towel, then season them with salt and pepper.

3 Saute them in the hot oil over a medium heat until they are a rich golden colour n both sides.

4 This will take 5 or 6 minutes.

5 Transfer the chicken to a plate and add the garlic and chilli to the pan and fry these briefly for about 30 seconds.

6 After that, add the tomatoes, tomato puree, olives, capers, chopped basil and some seasoning.

7 Stir everything well, bringing it up to a gentle simmer, then return the chicken breasts to the pan, skin side up, pushing them well down into the sauce and basting a little over the top.

8 Simmer for 40 to 45 minutes, uncovered, until the chicken has cooked and the sauce has reduced and thickened.
