Chicken and whipped feta sandwiches are the ideal addition to any springtime picnic basket.

 

The secret to incredibly flavorful chicken cutlets is a quick marinade in feta brine in advance of grilling. Food & Wine’s Justin Chapple then whips the feta cheese with lemon juice and olive oil to use as a spread for the excellent sandwiches here.

INGREDIENTS

2 salmon fillets
salt and pepper
1 box baby spinach
1 tablespoon pine nuts
1 lemon
1/3 cup feta, crumbled

PROCEDURE

Turn on the broiler and position the oven rack in the top position. Put a large skillet on a burner on medium low. Pat the salmon dry on both sides and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place salmon flesh side up on a baking sheet and put under the broiler until cooked. (I had lovely thin, tail salmon fillets and they took 5 minutes, but we like our salmon rare.)

While the salmon is cooking add the spinach to the skillet with a pinch of salt and pepper, if you can’t get it all in to begin with, that’s fine. Stir fry it until it wilts, adding more as there is room. When the salmon is wilted down, remove from the heat. Add the juice of half the lemon, the pine nuts, and the feta cheese and toss. Plate salmon together with spinach & feta mixture plus cut the remaining lemon in wedges and add to the plates.
