Sautéed Chicken Paillards with Greek Salad

  • FAST
  1. 4 skinless, boneless chicken cutlets (6 ounces each), about 1/2 inch thick
  2. 1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  3. 1/4 teaspoon crumbled dried oregano
  4. Salt and freshly ground pepper
  5. 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  6. 1/4 pound feta cheese, crumbled
  7. 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
  8. 1 kirby cucumber or 1/2 unwaxed cucumber, cut into 1/2-inch dice
  9. 1 large scallion, thinly sliced
  10. 12 arugula leaves, torn into pieces
  11. 12 mint leaves, torn into pieces
  1. Rub the chicken with 1 tablespoon of the olive oil and the oregano and season with salt and pepper.
  2. In a large bowl, mix 2 tablespoons of the olive oil with the lemon juice and season with salt and pepper. Add the feta, tomatoes, cucumber, scallion, arugula and mint. Season the salad with salt and pepper and toss well.
  3. In each of 2 large skillets, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil until shimmering. Add the chicken cutlets and cook over high heat until golden on the bottom, about 5 minutes. Turn the chicken and cook just until done, about 2 minutes longer. Transfer the chicken to plates, spoon the salad on top or alongside and serve.
