Healthy has never tasted this good. Here, peppery arugula is studded with roasted pecans and juicy chunks of poached chicken and drizzled in a tart lemon vinaigrette. Slideshow: Salads with Chicken
Rinse off the chicken breasts. Fill a medium stockpot with water and add the herbs, bay leaf, garlic, salt and peppercorns. Bring the water to a boil and add the chicken breasts.
Return the water to a boil and then lower heat to medium. Simmer for 5 minutes. Remove the pot from the heat, cover with a lid and keep the chicken in the hot water for another 15 to 20 minutes or until cooked through.
Remove the chicken from the water and cut into large bite-size pieces. Set aside to cool.
In a large bowl, combine the arugula, pecans, bell pepper and chicken. Set aside.
In another bowl, whisk together the olive oil, lemon juice, balsamic vinegar, Dijon mustard, garlic, brown sugar and season with salt and pepper.
Pour the dressing over the salad ingredients and toss to coat. Chill and serve.
