Ingredients

Salad

  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 head Romaine lettuce, finely chopped
  • 1 pint (2 cups) fresh blueberries
  • 1 cup roughly-chopped toasted pecans
  • 2⁄3 cup diced red onion
  • 1⁄2 cup blue cheese (or any soft cheese)
  • Dijon vinaigrette (see below)

Dijon Vinaigrette

  • 1⁄3 cup olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • Pinch of salt and black pepper

Instructions

To make the salad:

Season chicken breasts on both sides generously with salt and pepper.

  1. Heat oil in a large sauté pan over medium-high heat.  Add chicken breasts and cook for 4-5 minutes per side, until the chicken is cooked through and no longer pink inside.
  2. Transfer chicken breasts to a separate plate and let rest for at least 5-10 minutes.  Then chop into small, bite-sized pieces.
  3. Add the chicken to a large bowl with the lettuce, blueberries, pecans, red onion, blue cheese, and vinaigrette. Toss to combine.  Serve immediately.

To make the vinaigrette:

Whisk all ingredients together until combined.
