2oz Chopped Romaine
2oz Chopped Iceberg Lettuce
1 Small Chicken Breast
1tb Olive Oil
¼ tsp Lemon Pepper
½ tsp Dried Thyme
1/3 tsp Kosher Salt
2tb Crumbled Feta
3-4 ea Blackberries
3-4 ea Orange Segments
2-3 ea Cherry Tomatoes (cut in half length wise)
6-7 ea Chives
½ tsp Oats
½ tsp Brown Sugar
½ tsp Honey
A slight sprinkle of Salt
½ tsp Oil
Oat crumble: Combine oats, almonds, sugar, honey, salt, and oil. Lay parchment paper or wax paper down on sheet tray. Spread out the mixture on tray and bake at 250 degrees for 1hr. 15min. Cool once done and break it into small pieces.
Chicken marinade: Mix the lemon pepper, dry thyme, and salt together. Season chicken with lemon pepper mixture on both sides. Grill mark or sear chicken.
If grilling: Pre-heat grill on medium to high heat and right before putting the chicken on, at a slight angle, spray with pan spray. You are looking for those dark lines across the breast.
If Searing: Pre-heat your pan on a medium high heat. Once heated put 1tsp of oil in the pan and let it sit for a few seconds. Lay the breast down away from you top or “presentation” side first. It should start sizzling pretty loud immediately. Let it cook on that side for 30 seconds. Flip the breast and repeat. Both sides should be golden brown.
Cook in oven at 350 degrees for roughly 20-25 minutes or until 165 degrees internal temp.
Once cooked, cool it down.
When it has cooled down, brush with olive oil and slice diagonally into ½ in pieces.
Orange Segments: Take oranges and cut of the top and bottom. Next cut off the rind without taking out chunks of the orange. After rind has been removed, take a paring knife and slice between the membranes of the orange and the meat of the orange. Do that to every orange section and you should end up with orange wedges with just the “meat” of the orange.
Feta: You can either buy a block and crumble it or buy pre-crumbled feta.
Chives: Cut the chives into small pieces.
Tomatoes: Cut in half
