DIRECTIONS

  • Heat the extra virgin olive oil in a large (preferably non-stick) pan.
  • Add the garlic and sea salt and sauté for a couple of minutes, until the garlic has softened.
  • Add the zucchini and a little more salt and continue sautéing, stirring continuously.
  • Add the water or stock (or stock and wine)and allow the contents of the pan to simmer for 2 or 3 minutes, until the zucchini is well softened.
  • Remove half the zucchini from the pan and blend it roughly with the butter. Return this to the pan and add pepper, salt and a dash more olive oil.
  • Meanwhile, sprinkle the chicken breasts well with salt and extra virgin olive oil and chargrill them for a couple of minutes on each each side to produce a criss-cross effect. 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 for 2 minutes.
  • Spoon the zucchini sauce onto the two plates and serve the chicken over the top with a dash of extra virgin olive oil and a sprinkling of freshly ground black pepper.
