BBQ Chicken Breast With Zucchini Sauce


  • 2 chicken breast fillets skin off

  • 3 large Zucchinis sliced 1/2cm thick

  • 4 Cloves Garlic roughly chopped

  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil

  • sea salt

  • freshly Ground black Pepper

  • 300 ml Water or chicken stock

  • 50 g softened Butter


  • 1.

    Heat plenty of extra virgin olive oil in a large frying pan.

  • 2.

    Add the garlic and sea salt and fry a couple of minutes.

  • 3.

    Add the zucchini and a touch more salt and continue frying, stirring continuously to get the zucchinis moving.

  • 4.

    Add the water or stock and allow to simmer 2 or 3 minutes, until the zucchini is well softened.

  • 5.

    Remove half the zucchini from the pan and blend roughly with the butter. Return this to the pan and add pepper, salt and a dash more olive oil.

  • 6.

    Meanwhile, sprinkle the chicken breasts well with salt and extra virgin olive oil and char grill a couple of minutes each side to produce a criss-cross effect. Be sure to add another dash of salt to the chicken breasts when you turn them. This melts into the meat as it rests. Rest the chicken breasts 2 minutes.

  • Serve:

  • 1.

    Spoon the zucchini sauce onto service plates and serve the chicken over the top with a dash of extra virgin olive oil and a sprinkling of freshly ground black pepper.

  • 2.

    Serves 2.
