Roasted Chicken Green Bean Salad Sandwiches ( makes 6 Sandwiches)
5 chicken thighs
black pepper
1/2tsp sweet paprika
1/2tsp olive oil
1tbl mustard
1tbl lemon juice
1/2 cup olive oil or vegetable oil
1/2tsp honey
1/2tsp salt
pinch of fresh ground pepper
1/2 pound green beans, ends trimmed, steamed until fork tender and then cooled  in ice water to stop the cooking and to preserve the green color
1shallot, finely diced
3tbl parsley, chopped
3tbl chives, chopped
kosher salt
fresh ground pepper
fresh lemon juice
2 baguettes or bread of your choice ( courtesy of The Montclair Bread Company)
  • Preheat oven to 425F.  Brush the oven proof dish with little bit of oil. Season chicken thighs with salt, pepper and paprika. Place chicken into the oven proof dish. Roast for 45 minutes, or until golden brown and cooked through.
  • Remove from the oven and let cool slightly. Pick the meat of the bones and set aside to cool.
  • Prepare mayo. In a heat proof bowl, combine egg, mustard, lemon juice. Whisk together. Set the bowl over the pan of simmering water. Whisk constantly until mixture is hot. Once hot, cook for 1 more minute while stir whisking.
  • Remove bowl from the heat and gradually while still whisking add olive oil. Mixture will thicken.  Set aside to cool, stir occasionally.
  • For the Salad : roughly chop the meat, chop steamed beans into about 1/2 inch big pieces.
  • In  a medium bowl combine meat, chopped shallot, beans, parsley, chives, add cooled mayonnaise and gently stir together. Taste, season with salt, pepper and lemon juice as needed.
  • Chill for  an hour.
  • Split the baguettes in half, stuff with the salad. Cut the baguette into sandwiches. Wrap in a plastic wrap, napkin or wax paper. These can be made one day ahead and stored in the fridge.
  • If you like the bread to be really crusty fill the bread on the day of the picnic party.
