Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Poach chicken (see Tip). Use 2 forks to shred into bite-size pieces.
  2. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add pears and cook, stirring occasionally, until they start to brown, about 2 minutes. Transfer to a small bowl.
  3. Whisk shallot, vinegar and mustard in a small bowl; add to the pan and cook, stirring constantly, for 30 seconds. Add the cooked chicken, radicchio, fennel, carrot and walnuts. Cook, stirring occasionally, until just wilted, about 3 minutes. Return the pears to the pan. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. Divide lettuce leaves between 2 plates. Top with the warm chicken salad and sprinkle with cheese.
