  1. Heat grill to medium-high heat. Finely chop olives, garlic, and oregano together (use a mini food processor if you’d like); place in bowl and stir in 3 tablespoons oil.
  2. Place chicken between two pieces of waxed paper; lightly pound with meat mallet or rolling pin to an even thickness (about 1/2 inch). Brush with 1 tablespoon oil; season with salt and pepper.
  3. Place chicken on grill; cook 10 to 15 minutes, turning once, until no longer pink in center. Cook to internal temp of 165°F. Meanwhile, brush tomato and onion slices with remaining 1 tablespoon oil; season with salt and pepper. Grill until softened and lightly charred, about 2 minutes for the tomatoes and 6 minutes for the onion. Grill the bread, cut side down, until toasted.
  4. Slice the chicken; layer onto toasted rolls with tomato and onions. Top with a spoonful of the olive relish. Close sandwiches and serve.

Nutritional values may change if you choose to substitute another chicken product.  If substituting frozen chicken for this recipe, thaw before cooking.


So that the boneless thighs cook more evenly, lightly pound them into “paillards,” thin fillets that are grilled.
