Yield
4 servings (serving size: 1 chicken paillard, 3/4 cup arugula mixture, and 1/4 cup tomato mixture)

A paillard (PI-yahrd) is a piece of meat pounded thin and grilled quickly or sautéed. To make this colorful dish even more striking, use a combination of red and yellow tomatoes.

How to Make It

Step 1

Combine lemon rind, juice, oil, and garlic in a large bowl. Sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Add arugula; toss well.

Step 2

Place each chicken breast half between 2 sheets of heavy-duty plastic wrap; pound each piece to 1/4-inch thickness using a meat mallet or small heavy skillet. Sprinkle both sides of chicken with remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and remaining 1/4 teaspoon pepper.

Step 3

Heat a grill pan or a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add chicken, and cook for 4 minutes on each side or until done. Remove chicken from pan, and keep warm.

Step 4

Add halved tomatoes and dry white wine to pan. Cook for 2 minutes or until the liquid almost evaporates.
