 Zucchini with "Chicken Stripes" 
The following is one in an ongoing series of columns entitled Fabulous Functional Foods by . View all columns in series
Serves 4 with a side dish such as salad or steamed vegetables
It can be somewhat of a problem getting children to eat food that looks different, but zucchini with "chicken stripes" should not pose a problem.

  • 1 tsp coriander seeds, roasted and ground finely
  • 1 tsp fennel seeds, roasted and ground finely
  • 1 clove of garlic, minced finely
  • 1 tsp ginger, grated finely
  • 2 tbs extra virgin olive oil
  • sea salt
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • 11 ounces (300 gr) chicken fillet, sliced very thinly
  • 3 zucchinis about 4-5 inches (xx cm) long, sliced in half lengthwise
  • tamari
  • brown rice vinegar
Cooking Instructions
1) Combine the coriander seeds, fennel seeds, garlic, ginger, extra virgin olive oil, sea salt, and freshly ground black pepper in a food processor and pulse until the mixture is completely smooth.
2) Fill a large pot halfway with water and bring to a rolling boil. Blanch the chicken slices for exactly 20 seconds, immediately drain in a colander, and plunge into a large bowl of icecold water. Leave the chicken slices in the cold water for at least 10 minutes until they have cooled completely. Drain again. Mix in a bowl together with the spicy oil, and store in the refrigerator.
3) Slice 6 or 7 triangular wedges out of the topside of each piece of zucchini — diagonally — and rub the zucchinis with olive oil. Eat the wedges as a snack or discard them.
4) Arrange the pieces of zucchini in a single layer in a large oven-proof dish greased with a bit of olive oil. Fill the grooves with marinated chicken slices. Put any leftover slices in the dish next to the zucchini pieces.
5) Put the dish in a 550° F (270° C) hot oven for 7-8 minutes until the chicken slices are tender. Then turn off the heat and leave the dish in the oven for another 3-4 minutes. The zucchinis stay slightly firm. It is important to make sure the chicken stripes are cooked through.
6) Sprinkle a bit of rice vinegar and tamari over the zucchini pieces with "chicken stripes", and serve immediately while still hot.
