1 tsp dried chillies

½ cup extra virgin olive oil
Juice and zest of one lemon

2. Grate the zucchinis then quickly fry in a large fry pan until they start to soften (they will drop some liquid, pour this off). Add the white balsamic vinegar and sage and reduce.

3. In a red hot pan (wok is probably best) empty the whole bowl of chicken and marinade and fry until the chicken is browned.
