This recipe involves one of our favorite make-ahead hacks: let the chicken and steak marinate in reverse. In this recipe, you'll pour a punchy, citrusy dressing over the meat right after it leaves the grill, so it soaks up the bright vinaigrette as it cools. Better yet, reverse-marinating keeps the grilled meat from drying out, even when kept in the fridge overnight. Source: EatingWell Magazine, July/August 2018

  • Whisk 3 tablespoons oil, 2 tablespoons vinegar, tamari, lime zest, lime juice, maple syrup, garlic and 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper in a nonreactive bowl or dish. Transfer 1/4 cup of the marinade to another nonreactive bowl. Set both aside.

  • Sprinkle 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper on both sides of chicken and steak. Oil the grill rack. Grill the chicken, turning once, until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part registers 160 degrees F, 4 to 6 minutes per side. At the same time, grill the steak, turning once, 3 to 5 minutes per side for medium.

  • Transfer the chicken and steak to a clean cutting board and let rest for 5 minutes. Slice and add the chicken to one bowl of the reserved marinade and the steak to the other. Let cool to room temperature, turning occasionally, about 45 minutes.

  • Just before serving, toss arugula and herbs with the remaining 1 tablespoon oil, 2 tablespoons vinegar and 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper in a bowl. Arrange the chicken and steak on a platter and drizzle with any remaining marinade. Serve topped with the arugula salad.

Tips

To make ahead: Refrigerate chicken and steak in marinade for up to 1 day.
