This recipe is provided by NAKANO.

  • Ingredients (Chicken):
    • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
    • ¼ cup NAKANO Citrus Seasoned Rice Vinegar
    • Salt and pepper to taste
    • ½ cup olive oil, divided
    • 1 ¼ cup orange juice, divided
  • Ingredients (Salad):
    • 8 cups mixed salad greens
    • 1 large grapefruit, peeled and sectioned (white or ruby)
    • 1 avocado, peeled and quartered
    • ⅓ cup toasted shelled pistachio nuts
    • ½ cup NAKANO Roasted Garlic Seasoned Rice Vinegar
    • ¼ tsp. dry mustard powder

Directions:

  • Season chicken with salt and pepper. Heat 1 tablespoon of the olive oil in a heavy skillet until very hot. Quickly sear chicken on both sides. Pour 1 cup of the orange juice, and NAKANO rice vinegar sauce over chicken and continue cooking over high heat until juice is evaporated and chicken is glazed. Turn chicken once or twice during cooking.
  • While chicken cooks, prepare dressing by mixing together remaining orange juice and olive oil, rice vinegar, and dry mustard.
  • Arrange salad greens and grapefruit sections on four serving plates. Top with chicken that has been sliced, and avocado that has been sliced into fan shape. Drizzle with dressing and sprinkle with pistachio nuts.

Makes 4 servings.

NOTES: Store any remaining dressing in refrigerator for future use. Makes a lovely main dish salad. Serve on four individual plates, may be accompanied by warm crusty Italian or French bread.
