Chicken with sage and olive oil

This is a very tasty traditional recipe from Italy for chicken breasts. Do not be put off by the amount of olive oil, as the lemon and sage add extra flavour.


4 chicken breasts
150 ml of Manna Hill Estate extra-virgin organic olive oil
2 or 3 cloves of garlic,

Thinly sliced large handful of fresh sage

2 tbsp of lemon juice

salt and pepper


  1. Trim any excess fat from the chicken breasts with a sharp knife.
  2. Place them in a large heavy-based frying pan or saucepan.
  3. Pour the Manna Hill Estate extra-virgin olive oil over the chicken breasts.
  4. Add the sage and the sliced garlic to the pan.
  5. Cook over a medium heat in the olive oil, stirring occasionally. The oil should bubble slightly but not boil. Cook for 10 minutes.
  6. Turn the chicken breasts over and cook the other side for a further 10 minutes.
  7. Remove the pan from the heat and add the lemon juice. Stir well.
  8. Season with the salt and pepper.
  9. Serve with fresh vegetables and fresh crusty bread.
