Serves: 2

  • 1 6-8 oz chicken breast

  1. Prepare the marinade by whisking together olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, Italian seasoning, chilli flakes, salt and pepper. 
  2. Using a meat tenderizer, flatten the chicken to about 1/4 inch thickness and cut in half. Add to marinade, toss well and refrigerate for at least 30 mins.
