Paillard is a French term that refers to meat that has been pounded thin and quickly cooked. This method of preparation not only tenderizes the meat but also cuts cooking time down dramatically! Marinated cherry tomatoes with fresh herbs and warm potato salad add touches of bright flavor to the simply seared chicken.
