A new way to enjoy a grilled chicken sandwich!

  • Ingredients for Remoulade
    • 3 green onions, roughly chopped
    • 2-3 cloves garlic
    • 1/4 cup Old-Fashioned Fire Dill Pickles
    • 3/4 – 1 cup plain yogurt
    • 3/4 – 1 cup mayonnaise
    • 2 tbsp ketchup
    • 1 lemon, juiced
    • 1 tbsp spicy mustard
    • 1 tsp paprika
    • salt, to taste
  • Ingredients for Chicken:
    • 3 chicken breasts 
    • Juice from sweet dill pickles (leftover from Faux Fried Pickle recipe)
    • 1/2 jar of pickle juice from Old-Fashioned Fire Dill Pickles used in the Remoulade
    • 1 tsp garlic powder
    • 1 tsp onion powder
    • 1/2 tsp salt
    • black pepper, to taste
  • Instructions for Remoulade:
    • Using a hand chopper (or food processor) makes this recipe very easy!
    • Add green onions, garlic, and pickles to the hand chopper – and mix/chop into a small pieces.
    • Scrape down sides and add yogurt, mayo, ketchup, lemon juice, spicy mustard, paprika, and salt. Mix and scrape down sides again. 
    • Put the sauce in a dish and finish preparing the chicken.
  • Instructions for Chicken:
    • Marinate chicken in sweet dill pickle juice while you make the remoulade. 
    • You may marinate the chicken for longer, time permitting. The longer you marinate, the more ‘pickly’ the chicken will be! 
    • Remove chicken from the marinade and trim the fat. 
    • Carefully using a knife, slice each chicken breast in half to create two, thinner breasts. 
    • Place one of the breasts between two pieces of parchment or wax paper. 
    • Use a rolling pin or pan to gently pound the chicken to flatten/ thin to about 1/4 – 1/2 inch thick.
    • Repeat these above steps with each chicken breast. 
    • Season both sides of chicken with spices.
    • Put a grill pan (or any pan) on the stove over medium-high heat and add olive oil to coat.
    • Add chicken and sear on each side. Don’t fight the chicken. They will easily release from the pan and flip when they’re ready! Cook for 3-4 minutes per side, or until cooked though.
    • Build your sandwich! I like to use whole grain bread, lettuce, tomato, red onion, and of course, the remoulade! Serve with a side of faux- fried pickles.
