Chicken Paillard
  • For the Chicken:
  • 4 Boneless skin-on Chicken Thighs (pounded out and marinated)
  • Salt and Pepper
  • 1 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil (separated)
  • 1/2 pound Arugula
  • 1/2 cup Orange Juice
  • 1/2 tablespoon Dijon Mustard
  • 1/2 tablespoon Black Olive Paste
  • 1/4 cup Sun-dried Tomatoes (packed in oil)
  • 1 tablespoon Olive oil
  • For the Marinade:
  • 1/2 bunch Parsley
  • 1/2 bunch Thyme
  • 1/2 bunch Rosemary
  • 1/2 cup Apple Cider
  • 1 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • For the Marinade: In a baking dish combine all of the marinade ingredients. Add the chicken and season with salt. Chicken can marinade for up to 8 hours (overnight).
  • For the Chicken: Preheat grill pan to medium-high.
  • Drizzle the grill pan with extra virgin olive oil and place the chicken skin side down. Place a brick on top. Once skin is crisp, after about 4 minutes, flip over to finish, about 4-5 minutes. Season the chicken with a pinch more salt. 
  • While that cooks, reduce the orange juice in saucepan over high heat until reduced by two-thirds, about 3-4 minutes. Transfer the juice to a bowl and whisk in the mustard and black olive paste until well combined. Whisk in the oil until emulsified. Adjust the seasoning with salt and pepper.
  • Toss the arugula with 1 tablespoon olive oil and a pinch of salt.  To serve, split the arugula salad among four plates, add a whole sundried tomato, place a piece of chicken on top and drizzle with vinaigrette.
