Chicken Paillards With Herb-Tomato Salad
2 ripe medium tomatoes (1 red and 1 yellow), cored and roughly chopped (about 1 1/2 cups)
1 clove garlic, peeled and smashed
1 scallion (white and green parts), thinly sliced
3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, plus additional for brushing
2 teaspoons red wine vinegar
2 teaspoons kosher salt, plus additional for seasoning
Freshly ground black pepper
1/3 cup torn fresh basil
3 tablespoons roughly chopped fresh tarragon
3 tablespoons roughly chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
4 chicken paillards, about 6 ounces each
*A chicken palliard is a thin-sliced chicken breast (slice a chicken breast in half) and pounded or tenderized.
Prepare an outdoor grill with a hot fire.
Toss the tomatoes, garlic, scallion, the 3 tablespoons olive oil, vinegar, the 2 teaspoons salt, and black pepper to taste in a medium bowl. Add all the herbs to the bowl but don't toss. *If you like your tomatoes cooked, throw all of this into a skillet and saute on low-medium heat until the tomatoes are soft.
Brush the chicken paillards lightly with olive oil and season with salt and black pepper to taste. Grill the chicken, turning once, until cooked through, about 2 minutes per side. Stir the herbs into the tomatoes. Put a paillard on each of 4 plates, spoon some herb-tomato salad on top, and serve.
