Roasted Chook Breast, Porcini Bread Sauce & Chickpeas

Recipe by Michael Meredith

Serves 4

4 free range chicken breasts, skin on
400g Chickpea Ragout (see recipe below)
2 courgettes, sliced, grilled and and seasoned with La Chinata smoked paprika
80g Sabato Parmigiano & herb breadcrumbs, toasted

Preheat oven to 160°C. Heat a heavy bottom pan. Season the chicken breast, skin side only. Place into the hot pan, skin side down. Cook for approximately two minutes on medium heat to brown the skin. Turn breast over and place into the oven for 8-9 minutes to cook through. Remove from oven and rest for 10 minutes.

Divide the ragout amongst the serving bowls. Slice each breast into 3-4 pieces. Lay the grilled courgettes on the ragout and top with the chicken.

Spoon the porcini bread sauce on top of the chicken. Sprinkle with toasted Parmigiano & herb breadcrumbs. Drizzle with porcini oil and serve.
