2 tbsp olive oil
1 small lemon, thinly sliced
4-5 sprigs fresh thyme
1 red chilli, deseeded and sliced

1. Mix together the oil, lemon slices, thyme, red chilli, sumac and seasoning in a medium freezer bag. Add the chicken breasts, seal the bag and rub very thoroughly to coat the meat. Place in the fridge and leave to marinate for at least half an hour, or for up to 12 hours.
