4 Boneless, skinless chicken breast halves {brought to room temp}
1 tbsp. cup fresh parsley, chopped
1 tbsp. fresh thyme, chopped
1 tbsp. fresh oregano, chopped
1 lemon juice
2 tbsp. olive oil
1/2 tsp Himalayan salt
Cracked pepper

Broccoli Mash:
2 broccoli heads
4 tbsp. milk (Any milk of your choice)
1 tbsp. olive oil
1 tbsp. grated Parmesan (optional)
1 tbsp of lemon juice
1/2 cup fresh/fried shallots (or replace with 1/2 red onion)

How to
For the marinade, place all ingredients besides the chicken breasts into a bowl and mix well.

Place the chicken breasts in the above marinade for up to 1/2 an hour. Make sure to leave a little of the marinade for serving.

Using a nonstick fry pan, add 1 tbsp. of olive oil.

Add chicken breast; cook 3-4 minutes on each side, until browned and cooked through.

Remove from heat.

Drizzle with cover with left over marinade and let stand for a couple minutes before serving.

Broccoli Mash:
Start boiling a large pot of boiling water.

Cut 2 broccoli heads into rough pieces. Include the stems as well.

Place the broccoli in a streamer pot and put it over the pot of boiling water. Place the lid on top.

If you don’t have a steamer set then you can simply place into a pot of boiling water with a lid.

Steam/boil the broccoli for about 10-15 minutes.

Put the broccoli in a food processor or alternatively you can put it into a pot and use either a masher or hand blender.

Add the remainder ingredients and process/blend until the mixture is almost smooth.

Add salt and pepper, taste, and adjust seasoning.

Top with shallots.
