Make the quick-pickled shallots; prep and cook the chicken
- Peel and finely chop enough shallots to measure ⅓ cup [⅔ cup].
- Juice the lemon.
- 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. Working in batches if needed, 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. Add more oil between batches if needed.
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.

- Measure the shallots.
- Juice the lemon.
- Toss the beet salad.
