To make the salad, cook the broccoli and garlic in a pan of boiling water for 2-3 minutes, until the broccoli is al dente. Drain and cool for 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, sandwich each chicken breast between 2 sheets of clingfilm on a chopping board. Using a rolling pin, bash until flattened to about 1/2cm (1/4in) thick. Rub with the olive oil, sprinkle with the lemon zest and thyme or chilli. Season well.

To make the dressing, whisk the lemon juice, oil and sugar in a bowl with some seasoning.
Put the broccoli, garlic, almonds, raisins and courgette in a bowl. Pour over the dressing and toss to coat; set aside until needed.

Heat a griddle pan on the hob. Add the chicken and griddle for 3-4 minutes on each side, until cooked through with no pink meat showing. Serve the chicken with the courgetti.
