Chicken, Apple, Arugula, and Goat Cheese Salad

Looking for a way to use up the last of the arugula and an apple...realizing that I had a log of goat cheese in the cheese drawer... Google search can be a wonderful thing. This recipe can be found on the Simply Recipes site.

  • 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


1 Heat 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.

**Delicious salad. I used a red wine vinaigrette, no shallot, and no chicken. I used a braeburn apple.
