    bluemoon downunder's Note:

    Sounds yummy! I haven't made this yet but when I do, I'll certainly be using home made chicken stock rather than water in the zucchini sauce. It makes sense that it's going to be more flavoursome; and I'll probably using slightly less than the 300ml specified (300ml = approximately 11/4 cups) so that I can add a little white wine, or champagne. Adapted from Neil Perry's recipe from Fresh And Fast, which I found on the Lifestyle Food Channel website.

    1. 1
      Heat the extra virgin olive oil in a large (preferably non-stick) pan.
    2. 2
      Add the garlic and sea salt and sauté for a couple of minutes, until the garlic has softened.
    3. 3
      Add the zucchini and a little more salt and continue sautéing, stirring continuously.
    4. 4
      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.
    5. 5
      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.
    6. 6
      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.
    7. 7
      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.

      I can't get over how easy it was to make, how quickly everything came together, and how DELICIOUS it was! The zucchini sauce was a huge hit! I am going to try to make this into a soup for the winter months, thank you for sharing!!

      It is unusual for me but I tweaked this recipe a lot. I needed only 1 portion for my dinner so I sliced and sauted in olive oil a very small zucchini with a big clove of garlic. Then I added to it half a cube of chicken stock and sauted a bit more. After that I put it in a mug (it was that little), added a little water and liquidized it to a sauce consistency. It gave me half mug of sauce and that was all I needed. Meanwhile I grilled the chicken breast with coarse sea salt and a bit of olive oil in the oven. I was grilling it at about 220 Celsius but the chicken would not brown and that was my only concern. Otherwise it tasted really nice. I guess if you like zucchini and chicken - you will like this recipe. It has an important advantage - you can make it really quickly and I think that - without the butter - it is a very healthy and satisfying meal option. I had mango with yogurt for dessert and I am the happiest person in the world.

      I really wanted to like this recipe more than I did. I made it twice just to be sure. It wasn't bad by any means but the sauce left me wanting something more. I don't think we'll do this one again.
