  • 4 chicken breast halves

Place the chicken breasts in a folded piece of cling wrap; slightly flatten the upper portion of each breast with a rolling pin. Place the breasts in a shallow glass dish. Combine the remaining ingredients in a small bowl and pour over the chicken. Cover with clingfilm and marinate in the fridge for at least 2 hours (up to 4). Remove the breasts from the marinade and cling wrap, place them under a preheated grill and cook for about 6-8 minutes on each side.
