2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use


Cook the chicken

  • Pat the chicken dry with a paper towel; season generously with salt and pepper.
In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the chicken and cook, turning once, until lightly browned, 1 to 2 minutes per side. Reduce the heat to medium-low and continue cooking, turning occasionally, until firm and cooked through, 5 to 8 minutes. Transfer to a plate. Do not clean the pan.
While the chicken cooks, start preparing the salsa.


Start the mango-almond salsa

  • Zest and juice the lemon, keeping the zest and juice separate.
  • Trim the ends from the mango; cut away the peel, then cut the flesh away from the pit. Cut the fruit into ½-inch pieces.
  • Cut the tomatoes in half.
In a large bowl, stir together the lemon zest, 2 tablespoons [¼ cup] lemon juice, and 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] oil; season to taste with salt and pepper. Add the mango and tomatoes and stir to coat.


Prep and cook the romaine and radishes

  • Keeping the root end intact, cut the romaine in half lengthwise. Brush the romaine all over with 1 teaspoon [2 tsp] oil and season lightly with half the Montreal steak seasoning.
  • Cut the radishes lengthwise into quarters.
In the same pan used for the chicken, if dry, add 1 to 2 teaspoons oil. Warm over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Working in batches if needed, add the romaine and radishes, cut sides down, and cook, turning the radishes once or twice, until the vegetables are lightly charred, 2 to 4 minutes. Transfer to a cutting board. Add more oil between batches if needed. Season both vegetables to taste with salt and pepper and as much of the remaining steak seasoning as you like. Cut each romaine half in half lengthwise.
While the romaine and radishes cook, finish the salsa.


Finish the mango-almond salsa

  • Coarsely chop the almonds.
  • Strip the mint leaves from the stems; coarsely chop the leaves.
To the bowl with the mango and tomatoes, stir in the almonds and mint. Season to taste with salt and pepper.


Transfer the chicken, romaine, and radishes to individual plates. Top with the mango-almond salsa and serve.
