Chicken Breast with Chorizo Crumb

This chicken breast with chorizo crumb is such an easy and simple dish to prepare it barely merits being described as a recipe!  However, I have been asked for the recipe so here it is nonetheless.

I suggest serving this with the aubergine and butter bean stew. I think it looks nicer if you serve it sliced so that you can see the juicy chicken inside.
