Method

  1. Cut the chicken breasts in half horizontally and lay each between two sheets of cling film. Bash with a rolling pin until about 1cm thick.

  2. Squeeze lemon juice over the chicken and dust with the paprika. Season with salt and pepper, and drizzle with a little olive oil. Lay on a hot griddle pan or barbecue and cook for 3-4 mins on each side until charred and cooked through.

  3. Halve the ciabatta horizontally and lay, cut side down, on the pan for 1 min. Mix the crushed garlic and mayonnaise, then spread over the cut side of each ciabatta half. Top with the lettuce and chicken, then season with a little salt and pepper. Cut in half to serve.

Incredibly easy, with great results. The secret is the mayonnaise mixed with the crushed garlic, I think. I reviewed the recipe on my own blog.

This recipe is simple, quick, easy and extremelly tasty. Made it today for the first time and my husband just could not get enough :) As I didnt have any ciabatta, I used tortillas I had in the cupboard instead. This will definitelly become a family favorite.
