This Grilled Basil Chicken and Zucchini is a dish that I crave sometimes. I really think it is a perfect recipe. The dish combines chicken, zucchini with lime juice garlic and soy sauce which are great flavors together. It’s quick and there’s very little fuss. You’ll love it if you try it!

You start by cooking rice and making a sauce from garlic, lime zest and juice, soy sauce, sugar and chilli. Rub the zucchini and chicken with oil and season with salt and pepper and grill. Once cooked, chop up the chicken and zucchini, mix with the sauce and serve over rice. Super quick, easy and delicious!
