CHICKEN SALAD

i’ve found myself in a dinner time rut lately that involves eating too much pasta and not enough vegetables. i was looking for some colorful inspiration and turned to gwyneth paltrow’s book “” which is one of those cookbooks that i was surprised that i love and utilize so much.  i expected the book to be way too hippie and involve having to buy lots of bizarre (and expensive!) ingredients but it’s really not that way. the recipes are straight forward and everything i’ve made so far has been excellent. and there are tons of recipes that don’t have really long ingredient lists which is my main requirement for a weeknight dinner. i made her chicken with green olives twice in one week because it was that good! we made a version of her Chinese chicken salad and it’s simple and satisfying. lots of crunch from the vegetables with tender pieces of chicken and a slightly sweet dressing. we simplified the recipe from how she asks for the chicken to be cooked and added a few more things and i love how it turned out and wouldn’t change a thing from how we did it below. -joanie

salad:
• 2 carrots cut into matchsticks
• 2 heads of gem lettuce cored then finely chopped
• 2 green endive cored then finely chopped
• 1/2 a radicchio finely chopped
• 12 snow peas cut length wise
• quarter cup chopped cilantro
• black sesame seeds
• 2 green onions diced

chicken:
• 1 large bone in chicken breast
• five Chinese spice
• salt and pepper

dressing:
• 3 tablespoons Hoisin sauce
• 1/3 cup cold pressed untoasted sesame oil
• 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
• 1/4 cup water
• 1/2 teaspoon salt
• 2 inch ginger finely grated
• 1 garlic clove finely minced

• pre-heat oven to 375. generously salt and pepper each side of the chicken and then add a sprinkle of the five Chinese spice to each side. place the chicken skin side down on a cold cast iron skillet. turn heat to medium and cook 4-5 minutes on each side or until skin is brown and crispy. remove from the stove top and bake in the oven for 30-35 minutes or until cooked through. set aside to cool for about 10 minutes before shredding.

• for the dressing whisk the ingredients in a bowl.

• to assemble combine all the salad ingredients with the chicken and the dressing, top with black sesame seeds and enjoy!

WEEKEND AT HOME / 109

my favorite part of my morning is always coffee. there’s something calming about taking the time to brew a nice pour over, or make a stove top espresso with steamed milk. it’s kind of like the calm before the storm. i talked about my love for slow mornings before, and i wanted to share a few of my favorite coffee essentials to kick start your morning with a bit more enjoyment. what’s your morning routine like?
