Ingredients

  • 4 chicken breasts, skin on
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 400g fine green beans
  • 4 hard boiled eggs

  • For the salsa verde
  • 1 cup flat leaf parsley
  • 1 cup basil or coriander
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 1 tbsp tiny salted capers, rinsed
  • 2 anchovies, rinsed
  • Freshly ground
  • black pepper
  • 1 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 5 tbsp extra virgin
  • olive oil

Method

Heat a grill. Brush the chicken with olive oil and grill gently for 15 minutes or until cooked through, turning once. Season well and leave to rest.

For the salsa verde

Whiz the parsley and basil in a blender until pureed. Add garlic, capers, anchovies, pepper and vinegar and keep blending, gradually adding olive oil until it has pouring consistency (you can thin it with water).

Cook the green beans in simmering salted water for 4 mins (or until tender) and drain. Peel the eggs and cut into quarters.

To serve 

Slice the chicken and arrange on four dishes. Tumble the beans on the plate, tuck in the eggs, spoon the salsa verde over the chicken and serve.
