Heat 60ml / 4 tbsp of the olive oil in a large frying pan. Add the garlic and crushed dried chilli, and cook over low heat until the garlic is golden.

Discard the garlic and chilli. Add the wine, tomato strips and olives. Cook over moderate heat for 3-4 minutes, scraping up any meat residue from the bottom of the pan.

Return the chicken to the pan. Sprinkle with the torn basil. Heat through for 30 seconds, and serve at once.
