Recipe Ingredients for Spinach Salad with Pistachio Chicken

1 cup Pistachio Nuts, Dry Roasted
4 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
4 Serving Chicken
10 oz Baby Spinach
14 oz Tomato Cherry
1 fruit without skin and seeds Avocados
1 medium Yellow Hothouse Bell Pepper
2 medium (4-1/8" long) Onions, Spring Or Scallions
2 tbsp Parmesan, Grated Cheese
90 g Newman's Own Balsamic Vinaigrette Dressing

Recipe Directions for Spinach Salad with Pistachio Chicken

  1. Place pistachio in a food processor or blender, and pulse until finely diced. Sprinkle half of diced pistachios onto a large plate.

  2. Warm oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Press chicken breast halves into the pistachio pieces, adding more diced nuts to the plate as needed. Sprinkle chicken breasts with garlic powder and black pepper. Place in the skillet, and cook until golden brown. Reduce heat to medium low, and cook for about 3 to 5 minutes on each side, until the chicken is no longer pink inside. Remove chicken to a cutting board, and slice into thin slices.

  3. Into four bowls, place equal amounts of spinach leaves, tomatoes, avocado, bell pepper, and green onions. Place chicken slices on top. Sprinkle with Parmesan, pour on Balsamic vinegar, and season with black pepper.
