  • 1 skinless chicken breast, rinsed and patted dry

  • 1 medium zucchini, cut into 1-inch chunks

  • 1/2 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil

  • 1 garlic clove, minced

  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano

  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt

  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

  • Finely grated zest of 1/4 lemon (adjust to taste)


  1. Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C).

  2. In a mixing bowl, combine the minced garlic, dried oregano, sea salt, black pepper, and finely grated lemon zest. Mix well.

  3. Rub the chicken breast with the spice mixture, ensuring that it is coated on all sides.

  4. Heat the olive oil in an oven-safe skillet over medium-high heat.

  5. Once the oil is hot, add the chicken breast to the skillet and cook for 2-3 minutes on each side, until browned.

  6. Remove the skillet from the stovetop and add the zucchini chunks around the chicken breast.

  7. Transfer the skillet to the preheated oven and roast for about 15-20 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through and the zucchini is tender. The cooking time may vary depending on the thickness of the chicken breast.

  8. Once cooked, remove the skillet from the oven and let the chicken rest for a few minutes before serving.

  9. Serve the roasted chicken breast with the zucchini on a plate. You can garnish it with additional lemon zest if desired.
