Free Healthy Recipe - Chargrilled Chicken with Bean and Olive Tapanade

Dairy free, Low fat, Low GI, Wheat Free

The soft flavour of the pureed bean combined with the salty olive tapenade creates a wonderful balance of flavours with chicken. If you have the time to soak and cook the beans even better but I often find myself out of time and resorting to cans.

4 small fillets chicken breast
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp verjuice
2 cloves garlic
2 cans butter beans, (reserve 1/4 cup of the juice)
2 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp lime juice

Marinade the chicken breasts in the olive oil and verjuice for 1 hr.

Place the breast fillets on a hot grill and cook for 15 minutes until cooked through.
While the chicken is cooking, sauté the garlic in a small amount of olive oil. Add the beans and reserved water and heat through gently. Transfer to a food processor and process with the remaining olive oil, and lime juice until smooth.
Halve the tomatoes and grill the tomatoes with the chicken in the last 5 minutes.
Lay the bean puree onto each plate, drizzle a teaspoon of olive tapenade through each and serve the chicken and tomatoes on top.

Serve with steamed asparagus.

Note: Otherwise known as lima beans. Butter beans are large, white, kidney-shaped beans with a creamy "buttery " texture. Imported canned butter beans are labeled Fagioli Bianchi.
