INGREDIENTS

·         4 chicken breasts
·         2 tsp olive oil
·         1 1/2 lemons, zested
·         1/2 tsp dried thyme or chilli flakes
·         For the salad
·         1 x broccoli head, broken into florets, stalk cut into thin batons
·         2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
·         25g (1oz) flaked almonds, toasted
·         50g (2oz) raisins
·         1 x 250g tub courgette spaghetti
·         For the dressing
·         1½ lemons, juiced
·         1 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
·         1 tsp sugar




INSTRUCTIONS

1.  To make the salad, cook the broccoli and garlic in a pan of boiling water for 2-3 minutes, until the broccoli is al dente. Drain and cool for 10 minutes.
2.   Meanwhile, sandwich each chicken breast between 2 sheets of clingfilm on a chopping board. Using a rolling pin, bash until flattened to about 1/2cm (1/4in) thick. Rub with the olive oil, sprinkle with the lemon zest and thyme or chilli. Season well.
3.  To make the dressing, whisk the lemon juice, oil and sugar in a bowl with some seasoning.
4.  Put the broccoli, garlic, almonds, raisins and courgette in a bowl. Pour over the dressing and toss to coat; set aside until needed.
5.  Heat a griddle pan on the hob. Add the chicken and griddle for 3-4 minutes on each side, until cooked through with no pink meat showing. Serve the chicken with the courgetti.
