Warm Arugula Salad with Chicken & Chevre

From: EatingWell

Grown-up and sophisticated, this salad will make you happy you're not a finicky kid. For an even dressier spin, substitute boneless skinless duck breasts for the chicken.

Servings: 2 servings
Prep: 40 mins
Total: 40 mins
Rated : 
 by 1 person
6 cups  arugula, tough stems removed
4   green olives, pitted and quartered
4   large dried dates, pitted and quartered
1   orange, peeled, sectioned and sliced into chunks
1/4 cup  seasoned Italian breadcrumbs
8 ounces  chicken tenders
2 teaspoons  extra-virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons  frozen orange juice concentrate, thawed
1 tablespoon  water
1 tablespoon  cider vinegar
1 tablespoon  Dijon mustard
1/8 teaspoon  salt
  Freshly ground pepper, to taste
1/3 cup  crumbled aged or fresh goat cheese, (see Note)
1. Place arugula, olives, dates and orange chunks in a large salad bowl.
2. Place breadcrumbs on a large plate; roll chicken in the breadcrumbs to coat. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and cook until golden and just cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate; cover and keep warm.
3. Add orange juice concentrate, water and vinegar to the pan. Stir in mustard and let dressing boil for 30 seconds. Add salt and season with pepper to taste. Add half of the warm dressing to the salad; toss gently to mix.
4. Divide the salad between 2 plates. Cut the chicken into thin slices. Top each salad with the chicken, goat cheese and remaining dressing.
Note: Goat cheese, also know as chevre (the French word for goat), is earthy-tasting and slightly tart. Fresh goat cheese is creamy and widely available; aged goat cheese has a nutty, sharp flavor and is drier and firmer in texture. Look for aged goat cheese in a well-stocked cheese section at larger markets and specialty cheese shops.

Misleading! The picture posted is the same as the pic posted for the "Warm Salad with Chicken Paillards & Chevre" recipe. Other than that... too many ingredients! I like to keep it to 6 or under ingredients or the cost soars. Haven't tried it so can't really post a review (but am FORCED by your site to give stars) so will give it a neutral 3-stars.
