Grilled Chicken Subs
- 1 lemon, juiced
- Salt and pepper, to taste
- 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
- 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 4 split bone-in chicken breasts or skinless boneless breast halves
- 1 French baguette
- 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
- 1/2 cup mayonnaise
- Lemon juice
- Shredded lettuce
- In a bowl, whisk together the lemon juice, salt, pepper, mustard and garlic.
Whisk in the oil a little at a time until the dressing emulsifies. Place the chicken
breasts in a large bowl or baking dish. Pour the marinade over them and turn them
in the dressing. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 2 hours.
- Heat a charcoal or gas grill. When the grill is medium-hot, place the rack over
the coals. Set the bone-in breasts skin side down on the rack. Cover and grill them
for 10 minutes; do not move the chicken until it releases easily from the rack when
you nudge it with tongs. Turn the chicken, cover the grill, and continue to cook
for 8 minutes or until the meat is cooked through.
- If using boneless chicken, place the breasts on the rack skinned side down. Cover
and grill them for 5 minutes. Turn the chicken, recover the grill, and cook for
5 minutes more or until the meat is cooked through.
- Transfer the chicken to a cutting board and let it cool.
- Slice the meat. Cut a French baguette lengthwise, then crosswise into 4 pieces.
Toast the bread lightly. Stir the chopped parsley into the mayonnaise and add a
squeeze of lemon juice. Spread the bread with the parsley mayonnaise mixture, fill
it with shredded lettuce and sliced chicken, and serve at once.
