  • 6 tbsp olive oil

  • 1 courgette

  • 1 lemon

  • 2oz capers

  • 2 cloves garlic peeled and chopped small

  • 2 skinless chicken breasts

  • Some flat-leaf parsley chopped

  • 1 red chilli (optional)

  • 1 tin cannellini beans


  1. Drain canellini beans well. Put in a bowl with zest of lemon, capers, chilli (de-seeded and chopped small) parsley, garlic, courgette (chopped into 1cm dice). Add olive oil and juice of lemon. (NB - if doubling up quantities don't double up the lemon juice or it is too tart). Mix well and season
  2. Place chicken breasts on large square of foil (one each). Add half of veg mix to each foil square and wrap up so no juices can escape. Cook for approx 25 mins at 180C - (check with skewer - if cooking 4 pieces of chicken oven time increases)
