Old Bay, mustard, lemon and sweet and hot spices make for a full-flavored assertive rub for this grilled chicken. A quick tartar sauce is the perfect cool and creamy condiment for this dish.


For the Chicken:

For the Tartar Sauce:


  1. Make the chicken: Preheat a grill to medium high and oil the grates. Whisk the olive oil, mustard, lemon zest, Old Bay, sweet paprika and cayenne in a small bowl.
  2. Place the chicken between 2 sheets of plastic wrap and pound with a heavy skillet or the flat side of a meat mallet until an even 1/2-inch thickness. Rub the chicken with the olive oil mixture; set aside while you make the tartar sauce.
  3. Make the tartar sauce: Combine the mayonnaise, lemon juice, parsley, cornichons, mustard, dill and capers. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
  4. Season the chicken with salt and black pepper and grill until browned and well marked, 2 to 3 minutes. Flip and grill until the chicken is cooked through, about 2 more minutes.
  5. Top the chicken with the tartar sauce.
