Chicken Apple Arugula Goat Cheese Salad Recipe - rajeshsheth - 05-21-2012 03:37 PM

INGREDIENTS
Olive oil
1 large shallot, peeled and sliced
1 1/2 lb skinless, boneless chicken breast, cut into 1 inch cubes
Salt
1 tart green apple, thinly sliced
Baby arugula leaves - enough for a salad for four
1/4 cup toasted walnuts, roughly chopped
1/4 cup goat cheese - broken up into little pieces
Lemon juice
Salt and pepper
METHOD
1 Heat stick-free frying pan to medium heat. Add a tablespoon of olive oil and lightly sauté the shallot slices until translucent. Remove from pan. Add another tablespoon of olive oil and cook the chicken breast pieces, stirring occasionally, until just cooked through - 5 to 10 minutes. Sprinkle some salt on the chicken while you are cooking it. Remove from pan and chill.
2 When chicken has cooled, toss together in a serving bowl the shallots, chicken, sliced green apple, arugula, walnuts and goat cheese. Dress with olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper to taste.
Serves four.
