Chicken Paillards with Orange-Thyme Butter


  • 4 chicken breast halves, boneless and skinless

  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil

  • 4 Tbs unsalted butter, softened

  • 2 Tbs almonds, ground

  • 1 Tbs orange juice

  • 1 tsp thyme leaves

  • 1/2 tsp grated orange zest

  • 1/4 tsp salt

  • 1/8 tsp black pepper

Rounds of orange-thyme butter melt into the chicken breasts with wonderful results.


  • 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 ¼-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 1 - 2 minutes per side.
  • To serve, top each paillard with a slice of orange-thyme butter.
