Charmoula Grilled Chicken Sandwiches

“The chicken gets it's flavor from charmoula, a versatile marinade. You can make extra for a dip. Recipe is from Sunset Magazine. Prep time does not include marinating time.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix oil, lemon juice, 1/2 teaspoons salt, the spices, garlic and cilantro together in a medium bowl. Set aside 1/4 cup of the marinade. Add chicken to bowl, turning to coat evenly. Let chicken marinate, chilled, at least 30 minutes and up to 4 hours.
  2. Blend mayo, red peppers and remaining 1/2 teaspoons salt in a food processor until smooth, about 1 minute. Chill until ready to use.
  3. Prepare grill for high heat. Brush bottom halves of each roll with 1 teaspoons of reserved marinade mixture. Cook chicken, turning once, until grill marks appear and meat is cooked through, 7-10 minutes. Grill rolls, cut side down, until warmed and grill marks appear, about 2 minutes. Let both cool.
  4. To assemble: Set 1 chicken thigh on bottom half of a roll. Spread 2 tablespoons mayo onto cut side of top half. Sprinkle with 1/2 cup arugula and set top of roll on chiclen. Repeat for rest of sandwiches.
