  • Summary

    The high heat of a grill means that pounded breasts (paillards) cook in a flash and don't have time to dry out. You can buy thin cutlets, which are pricier, or flatten the chicken yourself, as we do here. (It's up to you whether to save time or money!)

    Ingredients

    • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (about 2 pounds total)
    • Vegetable oil, for grill
    • Coarse salt and ground pepper
    • 5 tablespoons Lemon-Herb Dressing
    • 1 head Boston or Bibb lettuce, torn into bite-size pieces
    • 1/4 cup packed fresh mint leaves
    • 1 medium carrot, shredded
    • 1/2 small red onion, thinly sliced
