 Fresh Basil
Italian Grilled Chicken

 2 tbsp lemon juice
 1/2 tsp Italian mixed herbs (rosemary, oregano, basil)

 1/4 – 1/2 tsp salt

Heat up your grill pan. Carefully lower your chicken and grill on each side for 3 minutes or till cooked through. Alternatively you can bake this, fry this or broil the chicken in the oven.

To Assemble

Warm up your pita bread in the toaster. Cut them in half and open up the flap. Spread a thick layer of tofu ricotta.


Slice up your chicken and them in on top of the cheese.
