Fresh basil

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 200°C. Place the chicken between 2 pieces of plastic wrap. Gently pound with a rolling pin or meat mallet to flatten slightly. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. Combine the artichoke, capsicum, eggplant, zucchini, tomatoes and olive in a large bowl. Drizzle with the oil and sprinkle with the garlic. Toss to combine.
  3. Cut four 40cm squares of foil and baking paper. Place the paper on top of the foil. Divide the artichoke mixture among the paper squares. Sprinkle with half the basil. Top with the chicken and sprinkle with the lemon zest. Season with salt and pepper. Fold the foil and paper over the chicken to enclose the filling. Place on a baking tray.
