2 large boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 small bunch fresh dill leaves
1 bunch parsley leaves
1 lemon, zested, juiced
3 tbsps olive oil, plus 2 tbsps
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
110g soured cream
75g mayonnaise
4 pepperoncini peppers, finely chopped
1 large ciabatta loaf, cut into 4 equal pieces
225g baby greens or red leaf lettuce
1) Butterfly chicken breasts and set aside. In a food processor combine the dill and parsley and pulse until finely chopped. Reserve 20g of the herb mixture for spread, set aside.

2) In a plastic bag set in a medium bowl, combine remaining herb mixture, half the lemon juice, 3 tablespoons of olive oil and salt and pepper, to taste. Place chicken in a plastic bag, add marinade, seal and massage to distribute marinade evenly on the chicken. Refrigerate 1 hour, turning once halfway through.

3) Meanwhile to make the herb spread, in a small bowl mix together remaining herb mixture, remaining lemon juice, lemon zest, sour cream, mayonnaise, pepperoncini and salt and pepper, to taste.

4) Preheat barbecue to medium-high. Remove chicken from bag, being careful not to remove herbs. Season with salt and pepper and cook on griddle, turning once, until juices run clear, approximately 6 minutes on each side. Remove to a cutting board and cut each breast in half.

To assemble sandwich, cut ciabatta pieces in half horizontally and slather one side of bread with dill-pepperoncini spread. Place chicken on other slice, top with baby greens and finish with the piece of bread covered with dill-pepperoncini sauce.
