Main

  • 4 chicken breasts

4. Rub a little olive oil over each of the chicken breasts and fry lightly for a minute or so on each side.

5. Wrap each chicken breast in a foil parcel. Place on the barbecue and cook for about 20 minutes (alternatively, if you prefer using the oven, place the foil parcels on a baking sheet and cook at 190°C/Gas 5 for 25 minutes). Serve immediately.
