Jamie Oliver's Crispy Garlicky Chicken from his cookbook, "5 Ingredients: Quick and Easy Food."

Serves 2
Total cook time: 20 minutes

Ingredients:
4 ounce boneless, skinless chicken breasts (2 pieces total)
2 thick slices of whole-wheat bread with seeds (2 1/2 ounces each)
1 clove of garlic
1 lemon
1 3/4 ounces arugula

Instructions:

Place the chicken breasts between two large sheets of parchment paper and whack with the base of a large non-stick frying pan to flatten them to about half an inch thick. Tear the bread into a food processor, then peel, chop, add the garlic and blitz into fairly fine crumbs.

Pour the crumbs over the chicken, roughly pat onto each side, then re-cover with the paper and whack again, to hammer the crumbs into the chicken and flatten them further.

Put the pan on medium heat. Fry the crumbed chicken in one tablespoon of olive oil for three minutes on each side, or until crisp, golden and cooked through.

Slice, plate up, season to perfection with sea salt and black pepper, sprinkle with lemon-dressed arugula and serve with lemon wedges for squeezing over.
