Paillards are chicken breasts that have been flattened to an even thinness with a meat mallet or rolling pin. They cook exceptionally quickly on the grill, which prevents them from drying out.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Combine marmalade, lemon juice, orange juice, bay leaves, 1 teaspoon salt, and pepper in a bowl. Reserve 1/3 cup glaze for serving.

  • Preheat grill to medium-high. (If you are using a charcoal grill, coals are ready when you can hold your hand 5 inches above grill for just 3 to 4 seconds.) Season chicken with salt and pepper. Place chicken on grill, and brush with half the glaze. Grill 3 minutes. Flip chicken, and brush with remaining glaze. Grill until chicken is cooked through, about 3 minutes more. Transfer to a platter.

  • Place oranges on grill. Cook, flipping once, until softened, 1 to 2 minutes per side. Add to platter. Serve with reserved glaze for drizzling over chicken.

Cook's Notes

To test thin chicken breasts for doneness, make a tiny nick in the meat with the tip of a knife; the inside should be moist, but not pink.

This is a great recipe, but (and this is a big but), there is absolutely no replacement for real Sour Oranges, a mixture of lime and orange juice does not replace the unique flavor that sour oranges provide.
