Step by step recipe

Stage 1 - 5 min.
Chicken club sandwich
Prepare the marinade by mixing rapidly 3 tablespoons olive oil, the juice of ½ lime, a few chopped fresh mint leaves, salt and pepper.

Stage 2 - 30 min.
Chicken club sandwich
Add the 2 chicken breasts to the marinade, mix well and cover with plastic film. Leave to stand for at least 30 minutes.

Note: this can be done the day before and kept in the fridge.

Stage 3 - 15 min.
Chicken club sandwich
Pour 2 tablespoonsful of the marinade into a frying pan on medium heat. When hot, add the chicken breasts.

Cook gently on each side over medium-to-low heat, pouring a little of the marinade over from time to time.

It is important not to overcook them. A thermometer is the best way to check this. Stop the cooking when the centre of the chicken breast reaches 80°C (176°F).

Stage 4 - 5 min.

Remove the chicken from the pan and leave to wait on a plate, covered with aluminium foil.

Pizza dough is a lind of bread dough with olive oil, which make it softer. This is the same dough that I use for pizzas and flammenkuches, this is no doubt incorrect, but it's very good nevertheless. At home we used to make pizza dough quite thick, and flammenkuche as thin as possible.
