4 chicken breasts, skinned

8 carrots peeled or 1 bag of frozen carrots thawed out

While carrots are cooking heat a char grill pan until very hot, if preferred you could use a conventional grill. Season chicken breasts with sea salt & pepper & drizzle with olive oil. Place on griddle for 3 – 4 minutes. Turn & cook for a further 3 – 4 minutes. Remove chicken from grill pan. Place sliced orange on each breast with the raisin.


Spoon carrots on plate, put chicken on top & then spring onion.
