Total Time:
1 hr 1 min
25 min
30 min
6 min

4 servings

  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil, plus 2 tablespoons, plus more for drizzling
  • 1 small shallot, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarsely ground fresh black pepper
  • 4 boneless, skinless, chicken breasts, 8 ounces each
  • Kosher salt
  • 6 ounces baby arugula
  • 1 1/2 cups red and yellow pear or cherry tomatoes
  • 1 small red onion, halved and thinly sliced, optional
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • Thinly shaved Parmigiano-Reggiano
  • Whisk together the lemon juice, 1/4 cup of the olive oil, the shallot and 1/4 teaspoon black pepper in a large baking dish.

  • Pound each chicken breast between sheets of waxed paper or plastic wrap with a rolling pin or a mallet to 1/8-inch thickness. Add the chicken to the baking dish, turn to coat, cover and marinate in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes and up to 4 hours.

  • Heat your grill to high.

  • Remove the chicken from the marinade and season on both sides with salt. Grill for 2 to 3 minutes per side or until golden brown and just cooked through.

  • While the chicken is grilling, combine the arugula, tomatoes, and onion, if using, in a large bowl. Toss with the vinegar and remaining 2 tablespoons of the oil and season with salt and pepper.

  • Place each chicken cutlet on a large plate and divide the arugula-tomato salad on top. Top the salad with a few shavings of cheese and a drizzle of olive oil.
