1

Prep and 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 teaspoons 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 cutting board to cool slightly. Cut the chicken crosswise into ½-inch-thick slices.
While the chicken cooks, start preparing the salad ingredients.

2

Make the peach caprese salad

  • Cut the tomatoes in half.
  • Peel the cucumber, if desired; cut the cucumber in half lengthwise, then on the diagonal into ¼-inch-thick slices.
  • Peel and thinly slice enough onion to measure ⅓ cup [½ cup].
  • Cut the peach in half and remove the pit; cut the fruit into ¼-inch-thick slices.
  • Cut or tear the mozzarella into ½-inch pieces.
In a large bowl, toss together the arugula, tomatoes, cucumber, onion, peach, mozzarella, and red pepper vinaigrette. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Serve

Transfer the peach caprese salad to individual bowls, top with the chicken, and serve.
