Poached Chicken Sandwich With Lemon-Caper Mayo*

2 cups water
3/4 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
2 (6-ounce) boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1/8 cup mayonnaise
1/2 Tbsp capers, drained, rinsed, and roughly chopped
4 slices whole-grain bread, lightly toasted
2 lettuce leaves
Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Bring water and 1/2 tablespoon of the lemon juice to a simmer in a large, high-sided saucepan. Season chicken with salt and pepper, add to water, and simmer, covered, 10 minutes. Remove pan from heat and let stand, covered, for 15 minutes. Remove to a plate and cool at room temperature, 5 minutes.

While chicken is cooking, mix together mayonnaise, remaining lemon juice, and capers. Season to taste with pepper.

Make each sandwich with 2 bread slices, 1 chicken breast (sliced in half lengthwise, if easier to manage), 2 tablespoons mayonnaise, and 1 lettuce leaf. Slice in half and serve.
