- Pounded Garlic - 1-2 cloves

Remove chicken breasts from package, separate from the bone or cut breastbone in half, as preferred.
Marinate with pounded garlic and olive oil, plus a little chopped lemon zest if you happen to have any extra lemons around.
Place in refrigerator and allow to marinate while you prepare the vegetables.
The broccoli and beans should be trimmed to bite- sized pieces and blanched to tender in salted boiling water.
When tender, plunge them briefly into an ice bath to stop the cooking and drain.
To serve, either grill or pan-fry the chicken breasts until cooked through and allow to rest.
Warm the vegetables and cut the chicken breasts into slices. Arrange onto plates and drizzle the vegetables with a small amount of walnut oil and lemon juice (optional – sprinkle chopped toasted walnuts on top)
