Syns per serving ½
Ready in 45 minutes
4 large skinless and boneless chicken breasts
400g tomatoes, 4 sliced, the rest roughly chopped
25g fresh basil, leaves picked
1 tsp dried oregano
10g fresh Parmesan, finely grated
6 courgettes, spiralized (or 500g shop-bought courgetti)
Juice of ½ lemon
200g radishes, chopped
Balsamic vinegar, to serve
1 Preheat your oven to 200°C/fan 180°C/gas 6 and line a baking tray with foil. Using a sharp knife, slice a long pocket into the length of each chicken breast. Fill each pocket with 3-4 tomato slices and 3 basil leaves. Season the chicken and spread on the baking tray. Top with the remaining tomato slices, tucking 1 basil leaf into each stack, then divide over the oregano and Parmesan. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through.
2 Meanwhile, put the courgettes into a bowl and season. Add the lemon juice and toss to coat. Leave to stand for 5 minutes so that the courgettes soften slightly, then squeeze out any excess lemon juice using your hands. Toss through the radishes, chopped tomatoes and remaining basil.
3 Divide the chicken and courgetti salad between 4 plates. Season the salad, then drizzle over the vinegar to serve.

There is a huge list of Free Food to choose from, which doesn’t need to be weighed, calorie counted or measured.
You can also snack on these to satisfy your hunger in between meals.
In addition, you are encouraged to eat measured quantities of certain foods, known as ‘Healthy Extras’ that provide nutrients essential for a healthy, balanced diet.
These include milk and cheese (for calcium) and cereals and wholemeal bread (for fibre and minerals).
And so you never feel deprived you can enjoy limited amounts of treats which are higher-calorie, less filling foods that include chocolate, crisps and alcohol.
