Instructions

Wash produce before use

1

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 2 to 3 teaspoons [1 to 2 TBL] 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 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.

2

Prep the remaining ingredients

  • Trim the ends from the radishes; thinly slice the radishes.
  • Thinly slice the mushrooms.
  • Cut the tomatoes in half.
  • Coarsely chop the almonds.
In a small bowl, stir together the honey-mustard vinaigrette base and 2 tablespoons [¼ cup] oil; season to taste with salt and pepper.

3

Toss the spinach salad

In a large bowl, toss together the radishes, mushrooms, tomatoes, almonds, and spinach with as much honey-mustard vinaigrette as you like (set aside any remaining vinaigrette for serving). Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Serve

Transfer the salad to individual bowls and top with the chicken. Serve any remaining vinaigrette on the side.
