Published

on

INGREDIENTS
2 large zuchinnis
2 garlic cloves
1/2 of a small red onion
1/2 fresh hot pepper (optional)
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
2 seasoning cubes e.g Knorr,Maggi
2 skinless chicken breasts
4 tablespoons olive oil
3 tablespoons water

DIRECTIONS
Chop off the head and bottom of the zuchinnis; peel off the skins using a potato peeler.Cut the zuchinni into medium chunks.

Combine all the ingredients (except the chicken) starting with the liquids in a blender; blend on high speed for about 20 seconds.

Coat the chicken breasts with 6 to 8 tablespoons of the marinade. Put in the fridge and let sit for about 30 mins.

Bake the chicken in the oven at 350°F for 30 mins or until the it is cooked.You can use a fork to test for doneness.

Serve with any side of your choice.I served mine with pasta.

Things to Note
If you don’t have a blender or prefer a rougher marinade,you can grate all the ingredients instead and mix in the oil. You will add less water if you use a grater.

Store the extra marinade in a glass jar in your fridge. It keeps for about 2 weeks.
