Grilled Chicken Sandwiches with Remoulade and Shaved Lemon

  • SERVINGS: makes 4 sandwiches
  • FAST
  1. 4 thin chicken cutlets (1 1/4 pounds)
  2. 1/2 cup fresh orange juice
  3. 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  4. Salt and freshly ground pepper
  5. 8 slices cut from a round loaf of semolina bread
  6. 1/3 cup mayonnaise
  7. 1 tablespoon minced parsley
  8. 1 tablespoon finely chopped cornichons
  9. 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  10. 1 scallion, finely chopped
  11. 1 small garlic clove, minced
  12. 1 teaspoon capers, drained and chopped
  13. 1/2 lemon, sliced paper thin, plus 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  14. 1 bunch watercress (6 ounces), large stems discarded
  1. Light a grill or preheat the broiler. In a medium bowl, toss the chicken with the orange juice and 2 tablespoons of the olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Let stand for 10 minutes.
