Wash produce before use


Prep and cook the chicken

  • Pat the chicken dry with a paper towel; season with salt, if desired, and pepper. In a medium bowl, stir together the Santa Fe spice blend and 1 teaspoon [2 tsp] oil. Add the chicken and turn to coat.
In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 2 teaspoons [4 tsp] 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 plate. Do not clean the pan.
While the chicken cooks, start the salad.


Prep and cook the tomato-frisée salad

  • Cut the tomatoes in half.
  • Finely chop, press, or grate enough garlic to measure 1 teaspoon [2 tsp].
  • Trim the root end from the frisée; coarsely chop the leaves. Transfer to a medium bowl.
  • Juice half the lemon; cut half into wedges for garnish. [Juice 1 lemon; cut 1 lemon into wedges.]
In the same pan used for the chicken, if dry, add 2 teaspoons [4 tsp] oil. Warm over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Add the tomatoes, season with salt, if desired, and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until starting to soften, 3 to 4 minutes. Stir in the garlic and cook until fragrant, 1 to 2 minutes.
Transfer the tomatoes and garlic to the bowl with the frisée, add 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] lemon juice, and toss to combine. Season with salt, if desired, and pepper.


Transfer the tomato-frisée salad and chicken to individual plates; drizzle the chicken with 1 tablespoon spinach-parsley blend. Serve the lemon wedges and remaining spinach-parsley blend on the side.
