Terrific flavor for late spring or early summer -- a flattened grilled chicken breast with orange and thyme.

"We really enjoyed this. As with the other post, we agree, chicken tends to get a bit boring. We were very pleased. I used fresh thyme and everyone enjoyed. Thanks for the great recipe."

Ingredients

Are you making this? 
4 each Chicken breast; boneless and skinless
1/3 cup Vegetable oil
4 tablespoon Butter; unsalted, softened
2 tablespoon Almonds; ground
1 tablespoon Orange juice
1 teaspoon Thyme; leaves
1/2 teaspoon Orange zest; grated
1/4 teaspoon Salt
1 pinch Pepper

Original recipe makes 4

Servings  

Preparation

Prepare orange-thyme butter by combining butter, ground almonds, orange juice, thyme leaves, orange zest, salt and pepper in small bowl. Mix well. Transfer onto a piece of plastic wrap. Roll into a 1-inch diameter cylinder; secure ends by twisting plastic. Chill butter until firm, about 2 hours. Open chicken breast halves and butterfly each piece by making a cut in the thickest part of the breast. Spread open chicken breasts between sheets of parchment or plastic wrap; pound to an even -inch thickness to make a paillard.

Prepare gas or charcoal grill. Sprinkle chicken breasts with additional salt and pepper; brush lightly with vegetable oil. Place on grill and cook, turning, until done throughout, about 2- 3 minutes per side or until done. To serve, top each paillard with a slice of orange-thyme butter.

Okay - I was slightly skeptical at first. I'm not really a grilled chicken kind of girl - I think it tends to be boring. But I gave it a go. At the last minute, I realised I didn't have any thyme, fresh or dried - but rather than cursing myself and giving up, I added tarragon instead. I was NOT expecting the rush of compliments I recieved. My husband was impressed, the kids were impressed, even I was impressed. The hubby kept asking if I had snuck in some MSG (a trick I have used in the past, because I can't get enough no matter what you say). Basically, don't pass on this recipe. It is too good!
