Seared Chicken Salad with Green Beans, Almonds, and Dried Cherries

Recipe Ingredients for Seared Chicken Salad with Green Beans, Almonds, and Dried Cherries

3 tablespoons olive oil
1 pound chicken breast (about 6)
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground pepper
1/2 pound green beans, trimmed
3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1 tablespoon apricot jam
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
5 ounces baby arugula
2 cups
1/3 cup dried
1/4 cup sliced almonds

Recipe Directions for Seared Chicken Salad with Green Beans, Almonds, and Dried Cherries

  1. In a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon oil over high; season chicken with salt and pepper. In two batches, cook chicken until opaque throughout, 1 to 2 minutes per side; transfer to a plate. When cool enough to handle, slice chicken crosswise.

  2. In a medium saucepan, bring 2 inches salted water to a boil. Add green beans; cover and cook until crisp-tender, 4 to 6 minutes. Rinse under cold water until cool; drain well.

  3. Make dressing: In a small bowl, whisk together vinegar, jam, mustard, and remaining 2 tablespoons oil; season with salt and pepper.

  4. In a large bowl, toss arugula and radicchio with all but 1 tablespoon dressing. Divide salad among four plates; arrange chicken, green beans, cherries, and almonds on top. Drizzle with remaining dressing; serve immediately.
