Grilled Chicken with Courgetti and Pesto
8th Jan, 2015

Ingredients

  • For the chicken:
  • 1 chicken breast, skin off
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 3 courgettes
  • For the pesto:
  • 1 handful of sunflower seeds
  • 1 handful of cashew nuts
  • 1 handful of spinach
  • 1 handful of basil leaves
  • 1 tsp rapeseed oil
  • Sea salt and black pepper
  • Rocket leaves, to serve

Equipment required:

  • Oven
  • Julienne Peeler or Spiraliser
  • Blender

Place the chicken on a baking tray, drizzle with olive oil and grill on each side for 10-12 minutes until cooked through.

Meanwhile, using either a julienne peeler or a spiraliser, make the courgette spaghetti. If you only have a knife, slice very thin strips and then cut them into spaghetti. Place the courgette spaghetti in a bowl and set aside.

To make the pesto, place all the ingredients in a blender and blitz to a coarse paste. Add this to the courgette and combine well. Once the chicken is cooked, serve with the courgette, pesto and, if you want, some rocket leaves.
