Beat the chicken lightly with a meat mallet then sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Warm the oil in a frying pan over a medium heat. Lightly beat the egg. Dip chicken first into the egg, and then into the breadcrumbs. Place in the frying pan and cook for 3 to 5 minutes on each side until no longer pink in the centre.
Meanwhile, thinly slice the courgette using a vegetable peeler. Melt the butter in a frying pan over a medium heat, and cook the courgette strips for 5 to 7 minutes. Season to taste then sprinkle in the fresh mint. Serve the chicken breasts on a bed of courgette.
