Lemon and Garlic Chicken with Steamed Veg

Simple, healthy and delicious. Can't ask for easier than that over this holiday period!


  • 1 chicken breast

  • 1 tbsp olive oil

  • The juice and zest of half a lemon

  • ½ tsp oregano

  • ½ tsp fresh thyme

  • 1 garlic clove

  • Salt and pepper seasoning

  • ½ cup of broccolini

  • ½ cup of cauliflower

  • 1 cup of English spinach


  1. Pound the chicken breast between 2 pieces of baking paper. Use a mallet and pound to approx. ½ inch of thickness.

  2. Use a mortar and pestle to combine the rest of the ingredients into a paste. Alternatively, you can use a high-speed blender.

  3. Coat the chicken breast with the marinade, place in a bowl and put in the refrigerator for at least 30 mins (up to 12 hours). The longer you leave to marinade the better.

  5. Preheat the grill to a medium heat.

  6. Place the chicken breast on the grill making sure it is covered in marinade.
