Units Scale

for the marinade:

  • 1/2 bunch parsley
  • 2 lemons, zest and juice
  • 1/2 shallot
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 3/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 2 tbsp hot water
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1/2 cup full-fat plain greek yogurt

for the chicken:

  • 4 skinless boneless chicken breast halves, pounded thinly
  • kosher salt and freshly-ground black pepper
  • 6 cups fresh arugula
  • 1 shallot, thinly sliced
  • garnish: flaky salt, fresh shavings of parmesan, lemon wedges, and extra-virgin olive oil


  1. First, make the marinade by blending everything together in a blender.
  2. Place the chicken in a baking dish or large ziploc. Pour the marinade over it and let marinate in the fridge for at least 8 hours (or overnight.)
  3. When ready to prepare, prepare a grill or grill plan to medium-high heat. Let the excess marinade drain off the chicken, then season both sides with lots of salt and pepper.
  4. Grill on each side for about 5 minutes per side, until lightly charred and cooked through. Place chicken on a serving platter or individual plates, top with arugula, then sprinkle over sliced shallot and shaved parmesan.
  5. Drizzle extra-virgin olive oil over arugula, add a pinch of flaky salt and pepper, and serve with lemon wedges. Eat!
