If you wish to include more vegetables in your diet in an effortless way, this chicken with Avocado Basil Sauce, Cherry Tomatoes & Courgetti is a great start!
This meal has the elements of a salad and a cooked meal, with the raw courgetti and avocado basil sauce representing the salad, and the chicken and plump cherry tomatoes adding the cooked meal feel to it.
This dish is packed full of flavour, made with everyday ingredients and is easy to make. The avocado basil sauce can be made ahead and stays fresh for at least 3 days in an airtight container. The courgetti can also be prepared the night before – simply spiralize the courgette and keep it in an airtight container. That leaves cooking the chicken and tomatoes – simply pan fry the chicken to give it colour, oil and season the tomatoes and place in an ovenproof dish and bake in the oven.
If you like things spicy, you can finish the meal with freshly chopped chilli, or boost the nutrient content by serving it with a good handful of spinach or rocket.
