Heat a drizzle of olive oil in a large frying pan over a medium-high heat. Add the marinated chicken breast and cook for 2 minutes on each side, brushing with the marinade, until browned (reserve the remaining marinade in the bowl). TIP: Searing the chicken in a pan before baking in the oven helps it caramelise.

Bake the chicken

Transfer the chicken breast to the second oven tray lined with baking paper and pour over any remaining marinade. In the last 14 minutes of vegetable cooking time, place the chicken in the oven and bake until cooked through. TIP: The chicken is cooked when it is no longer pink inside.
