Description:
Chicken meat is rich in protein - which is essential for growth and cell
repair - and low in fat. It also provides important B vitamins. The parsley and lemon juice in this dish help boost levels of vitamin C. Garlic can be very good for your health and immunity.


Ingredients:
* 2 boneless chicken breasts, preferably free range or organic, skinned
* 1 tbsp olive oil, plus extra for greasing
* freshly squeezed juice half a lemon
* 2 tbsp chopped fresh parsley
* 1 garlic clove, peeled and crushed
* freshly ground black pepper
* large mixed salad or seasonal vegetables, to serve


Directions:
* Cut the chicken breast carefully horizontally almost all the way through the middle with a knife and open out. Place in a shallow dish and add the olive oil, lemon juice, parsley and garlic. Season with a little ground black pepper. Cover and leave to marinate in the fridge for 30 minutes.

* Lightly oil and preheat the Grill. Lift the chicken out of the marinade with a fork and shake off any excess. Place on the grill. Close the lid and grill for 3 minutes.

* Turn the chicken over,changing direction for nice grill marks and close the lid and grill for a further 2-3 minutes until it is thoroughly cooked and no pinkness remains. Remove from the grill and stand for 3 minutes. Serve with a large mixed salad or freshly cooked seasonal vegetables.

Wellness Tip
Simple Back Stretch
Are you looking for a simple and relaxing low back stretch? If so, try this tip: Lie flat on the floor, on your back, with your legs extended. Pull your right knee up to your chest while pressing your lower back against the ground. Hold the position for about 30 seconds to a minute. Repeat with your left knee. Low back stretches can help relieve tension, improve flexibility and reduce stress. If you have preexisting back disease or injuries, check with your physician or therapist first.
