Cook the eggs
Bring a small sauce pot of water to a boil and fill a small bowl with ice water. Carefully lower the eggs into the boiling water and cook for exactly 6 minutes for soft-cooked (for firmer yolks, cook 1 to 3 minutes longer). Transfer the eggs to the ice water to cool. Carefully peel the eggs. While the water is heating and the eggs are cooking, prepare the chicken.
Prep and cook the chicken
- Pat the chicken dry with a paper towel. Cut the chicken crosswise into 1-inch-thick pieces; season lightly 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, stirring occasionally, until browned and cooked through, 6 to 8 minutes. Transfer to a plate. Meanwhile, prepare the remaining ingredients.
Prep the remaining ingredients
- Trim the root ends from the romaine hearts; coarsely chop the leaves.
- Cut away the core from the tomato; coarsely chop the tomato.
- Core and cut the pear into ½-inch pieces.
- Trim the root ends from the scallions; thinly slice the scallions.
- Cut the eggs in half lengthwise.
Assemble the salad
In a large bowl, toss together the romaine, tomato, pear, scallions, chicken, and as much sherry vinaigrette as you like. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
Transfer the salad to individual bowls and top with the eggs. Serve any remaining vinaigrette on the side.
