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 teaspoons oil until hot but not smoking. Working in batches if needed, add the chicken and cook, turning once, until lightly browned and cooked through, 3 to 5 minutes per side for the cutlets. For the breasts, 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 7 minutes per side. Transfer to a cutting board to cool slightly. Add more oil between batches if needed. Cut the chicken crosswise into ½-inch-thick slices.
While the chicken cooks and cools, prepare the remaining ingredients.


Prep the remaining ingredients; cook the apples

  • Cut the apples into quarters lengthwise and cut away the core; cut each quarter lengthwise into 1-inch-thick slices, then crosswise into 1-inch cubes.
  • Peel the kiwis and cut into ¼-inch-thick rounds.
In a medium [large] frying pan over medium heat, warm 2 to 3 teaspoons oil until hot but not smoking. Working in batches if needed, add the apples and cook, stirring occasionally, until slightly tender and warmed through, 3 to 4 minutes. Add more oil between batches if needed. Remove from the heat and season lightly to taste with salt.


Toss the salad

In a large bowl, toss together the kale and house dressing. Add the apples and kiwis, season to taste with salt and pepper, and toss to combine.


Transfer the salad to individual bowls and top with the chicken. Garnish with the shaved coconut and serve.
