  1. Flatten the chicken breasts by covering with cling-film and beating with a rolling pin so they are of an even thickness
  2. Heat the butter together with the freshly ground black pepper in a heavy based frying pan and brown the chicken breasts on both sides - about 4 minutes
  3. Reduce the heat to low, cover and cook for 15 minutes until properly cooked. Discard any condensed water, remove the chicken pieces and keep warm.
  4. Add the olive oil to the same pan and gently sauté the chopped shallots
  5. Pour the sherry vinegar and cream sherry over the cooked shallots, add the parsley, season with salt an pepper and reduce by about half the amount
  6. Allow the pan to cool a little so the cream does not seperate. Stir in the double cream, mix well
  7. Dish up the chicken and pour the shallot sauce over the chicken
