Wash produce before use


Roast the sweet potato

Heat the oven to 450°F.
  • Scrub or peel the sweet potato. Cut the potato in half lengthwise, then cut each half lengthwise into ½-inch-thick slices.
On a sheet pan, drizzle the sweet potato with 2 teaspoons [4 tsp] oil; season generously with salt and pepper and toss to coat. Spread in an even layer and roast, turning once halfway through, until the potato is tender and lightly browned, 20 to 25 minutes.
While the sweet potato roasts, prepare the chicken.


Prep and cook the chicken

  • Pat the chicken dry with a paper towel; season generously with salt and pepper and the paprika.
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, 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, then cut the chicken into ½-inch-thick slices. Do not clean the pan.
While the chicken cooks and cools, prepare the shallots and almonds.


Prep and cook the shallots and almonds

  • Peel the shallots and cut them crosswise into ¼-inch-thick slices. Separate the slices into rings.
In the same pan used for the chicken, if dry, add 1 to 2 teaspoons oil. Warm over medium heat until hot but not smoking. Add the shallots, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until soft, 3 to 5 minutes. Stir in the almonds and cook until fragrant, 1 to 2 minutes. Transfer to a plate.
While the shallots and almonds cook, prepare the vinaigrette and salad.


Make the vinaigrette and salad

In a small bowl, stir together the maple vinaigrette base and 1 teaspoon [2 tsp] oil; season to taste with salt and pepper.
In a large bowl, toss together the arugula, mixed greens, and shallot-almond mixture. Add as much vinaigrette as you like and toss to coat (set aside any remaining vinaigrette for serving). Season to taste with salt and pepper.


Transfer the chicken, sweet potato fries, and salad to individual plates and serve any remaining vinaigrette on the side.
