  • 2 ripe nectarines, halved and pitted
  • 3 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil plus ¼ cup, divided
  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breast, trimmed
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt, divided
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground pepper, plus more to taste
  • 3 tablespoons red-wine vinegar
  • 1½ tablespoons water

  1. Preheat grill to medium or heat a stovetop grill pan over medium-high heat.
  2. Brush nectarine halves lightly with 1 teaspoon oil. Season chicken on both sides with ¼ teaspoon each salt and pepper and lightly brush with 2 teaspoons oil.
  3. Grill the chicken, turning once or twice, until cooked through, 12 to 18 minutes total. Grill the nectarines until lightly charred and softened, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Let the chicken and nectarines cool on a clean cutting board for about 10 minutes, then chop into bite-size pieces.
  4. Meanwhile, whisk the remaining ¼ cup oil, vinegar, water, mustard, honey and the remaining ¼ teaspoon salt in a large bowl. Add lettuce, radicchio, tomatoes, cheese, the chicken and nectarines; toss well to combine. Season with pepper.
