  • For the Chicken:
  • 2 free-range or organic, skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 sprigs of fresh rosemary, leaves picked & chopped
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • Sea salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • For the Salsa:
  • Dried Chipotle chilies soaked in boiling water
  • Handful of fresh tomatoes
  • Small bunch of fresh coriander
  • 4 spring onions
  • 1/2 clove of garlic

  • Salt & Pepper
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • For the Pitas and Yogurt:

  • Natural Yogurt
  • Lemons

  • Cooking Directions

    Season your chicken breast with sea salt & freshly ground black pepper, the zest of 1 lemon and the chopped rosemary. Cover with cling film and bash until the breasts are 1cm thick. Rub the chicken with olive oil then cook in a screaming hot frying pan, cooking for a few minutes on each side or until cooked through and golden.

    For your salsa: In a food processor, mix all your ingredients together, blitz and serve with your chicken.

    To serve, slice the chicken breasts in to strips and serve on the toasted pitas/ flat breads, with the salsa, some natural yoghurt and some picked mint leaves.
