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

Wash produce before use


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 slightly 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. 

While the chicken cooks, prepare the salad and the dressing. 


Make the salad; finish the dressing

  • Cut a small corner from the beet packaging and drain off any excess liquid; coarsely chop the beets. 
  • Trim the root ends from the scallions; thinly slice the scallions. 
  • Juice the lemon.

In a large bowl, combine the beets, scallions, arugula, 2 tablespoons [¼ cup] lemon juice, and 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] oil. Season to taste with salt and pepper. 

In a small bowl, stir together the lemon-tahini dressing base, dill, and 2 tablespoons [¼ cup] oil. Season to taste with salt and pepper. 


Transfer the beet and arugula salad to individual plates and top with the chicken. Spoon over the lemon-tahini dressing and serve.
