Char grill capsicum until slighltly black on the outside put to one side.  Mix a tablespoon of olive oil and 1/2 the herbs, salt, pepper, 1/2 the garlic and a good splash of balsamic with the vegetables.  Cook on hot grill for 5 minutes, stirring around.  Once cooked put to one side. 

Trim chicken and place on a sheet of baking paper, coat with the remaining herbs, garlic, salt, pepper and lemon zest then place another sheet of baking paper over the top and bash out with a rolling pin or similar.  Place on VERY hot grill, seal on both sides and cook for about 5 minutes on one side and 3 minutes on the other.  When done wrap in cooking foil and place to one side.

Take the skin off the capsicum, discard and finely slice.  Chop lettuce mixture and place in a bowl.  Add cooked vegetables and a dash of lemon juice, olive oil and balsamic, mix again.  Place on a plate top with the chicken breast and decorate with sliced capsicum, add a drizzle of oil to finish.
