Ingredients
  • 4 Free range chicken breasts, flattened out
  • 4 Garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 teaspoon Dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon Sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon Black pepper
  • 3 tablespoons Extra virgin olive oil
Instructions
  1. Flatten out the chicken breasts as described above with a meat tenderizer.
  2. Place the garlic, oregano, salt, pepper and olive oil into a large sandwich or freezer bag and add the chicken breasts. Place the bag in the fridge and allow to marinate for up to 4 hours or overnight if possible.
  3. When you’re ready to cook the chicken, preheat the barbecue to a very high temperature.
  4. Grill the chicken on a high heat until cooked through. It takes us roughly 20 minutes but this will depend on your barbecue and the thickness of your chicken. Always check that your chicken is cooked through using a meat thermometer. Best served with grilled aspargus
Recipe Notes

If you don’t have a barbecue you can cook the chicken in the oven. Preheat the oven to 240°C fan, 220°C electric, gas mark 9, or 475°F. Cook for 20 minutes. This is based on the chicken being flattened out really well. Always use a meat thermometer to check that the chicken is cooked through.
