4 servings

Ingredients

  • 4 cups mixed baby greens, rinsed and patted dry
  • 1 cup sliced mushrooms
  • 1 cup diced fennel
  • 1 cup julienned carrots
  • 1 cup diced celery
  • 1 (14-ounce) can baby artichokes, drained and quartered
  • 1 cup calamata or nicoise olives
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced scallion
  • 1 whole boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into halves and pounded to 1/2-inch thick
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh thyme leaves, or 1 teaspoon dried thyme, crumbled
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • 1/2 cup canned chicken broth
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard, or to taste
For the dressing:
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons olive oil, or to taste
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar

Directions

In a large salad bowl combine the greens, mushrooms, fennel, carrots, celery, artichokes, olives, and scallion, and toss the mixture to combine. Pat the chicken dry and season with the thyme, salt, and pepper. In a large nonstick skillet set over moderately high heat, warm the oil until hot, add the chicken, and saute it for 2 minutes. Turn and cook for 1 minute more. Transfer the chicken to a plate. Add the wine to the skillet and reduce it by half. Add the broth, whisk in the mustard, and return the chicken to the skillet. Simmer 2 to 3 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through and springy to the touch. Transfer the chicken to a plate, reduce the remaining liquid to 1/2 cup, and pour it into a small bowl. Make the dressing: Add the olive oil, whisking, to the bowl of reduced cooking liquid and whisk in the vinegar and salt and pepper, to taste. Cut chicken into slices and add to the salad bowl. Pour juices from plate into dressing, whisking to combine, and drizzle over salad. Toss mixture until chicken and vegetables are well coated with dressing.
