What are we cooking today?

Sometimes you need something simple like a sandwich for dinner. Something quick simple and OOOO so satisfying, this is that sandwich. The chicken absorbs the flavors of a lemony-garlic-rosemary marinade before getting grilled. The caper mayo—creamy and briny thanks to the chopped capers—does double duty as a sandwich sauce and extra layer of flavor in the dressing. Peppery arugula on the side is the perfect accompaniment. Cook, relax, and enjoy!

The Ingredients

The Recipe

1. Prep ingredients

Zest and juice lemon separately. Peel and finely chop 1 large clove garlic. Finely chop ½ of the rosemary leaves (save rest for own use). Roughly chop capers. Cut tomato into ½-inch slices. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper.

2. Marinate chicken

In a medium bowl, combine chopped rosemary and garlic, 1 tablespoon lemon juice, ¼ cup olive oil, ½ teaspoon salt, and a few grinds pepper. Transfer 2 tablespoons marinade to a large bowl for step 3. If necessary, pound chicken to an even ½-inch thickness. Add to medium bowl with remaining marinade and toss to coat. Let sit for 5-10 minutes.

3. Make mayo & dressing

Meanwhile, preheat broiler with top rack 6 inches from heat source. In a small bowl, combine mayonnaise, chopped capers, ½ teaspoon lemon zest, and 1 teaspoon lemon juice. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Stir 1 tablespoon caper mayo into the reserved 2 tablespoons marinade to make dressing.

4. Grill

Heat a grill or grill pan over medium-high. Add chicken and grill on one side until lightly charred and almost completely cooked through, 6-7 minutes. Flip chicken, cook until just done, 1-2 minutes. Grill tomatoes, about 3 minutes on 1 side, flip, then 1 more minute on the other side.

5. Toast bread

Place bread on a rimmed baking sheet and lightly brush 1 side with oil. Broil until crisp on one side, 1-2 minutes (watch closely as ovens vary).

6. Assemble & serve

Toss arugula with dressing. Spread untoasted sides of bread with caper mayo. Top each with grilled chicken (halving if necessary), tomato, and a handful of dressed arugula. Top with remaining bread slices, toasted side-out, cut in half, and serve remaining salad alongside. Enjoy!
