Poach the chicken, toast the nuts:

Heat the oven to 350°F. In a 4-quart saucepot over high heat, cover the chicken with enough water to submerge it by 1-inch. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, and cook until the chicken is tender and easy to shred, about 10 minutes. Remove the chicken from pot and cool to room temperature. Meanwhile, roughly chop hazelnuts and place on a sheet pan. Toast in the hot oven until lightly brown and fragrant, about 10 minutes.


Prep the salad, make the dressing:

Trim off ends of the chicories, pull leaves apart and roughly chop. Rinse and dry the leaves. Pick leaves off the parsley and discard stems. Wash, core and thinly slice the apple. Finely chop the dill. Juice the lemons. In a small bowl, whisk 3 tablespoons of the lemon juice with dill, 2 tablespoons oil and 1/2 teaspoon salt.


Once chicken has cooled, shred it with your hands or a fork and knife. Toss the chicories with the chicken, apple slices, parsley, dill dressing. Season to taste with salt and pepper.. Divide evenly between two bowls and garnish with hazelnuts.
