Chicken Medallions And Fruit Salad


I am sending this to Girard's Salad Dressing Giveaway at Living the Gourmet.

  • 200 g Chicken breast, skinless and boneless
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tbsp Olive oil
  • 1 Onion
  • 1/2 head Iceberg lettuce, shredded
  • 1/2 Tomato, thinly shredded
  • Some fresh pineapple wedges
  • 6-8 Fresh strawberries, cut into wedges
  1. Cut the chicken breast into medallions. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Peel and cut the onions in half, and then slice the onions lengthwise to desired thickness.
  2. Heat olive oil in a skillet until sizzling hot. Drop medallions in the skillet and let them sear until tender and lightly golden. Remove and drain. Use the remaining oil in the skillet to caramelize the onions. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Arrange the salad, tomato shreds, caramelized onion, and fruits into two serving plates. Top with chicken medallions. Serve.

While I don't eat meat, I do miss the days of eating a piece of wonderfully seasoned chicken on top of salad. The pairing of fruit is such a lovely refreshing concept. Another beautiful recipe and the pictures are just wonderful!

A very pretty salad - love the crusty look of the chicken medallions and the combination of fruit and veg.

[Reply]
Haddock 15/7/10 06:58

That fruit salad looks more inviting to me than the chicken pieces.
By the way they have solved the eternal mystery. Today's papers say "The chicken came first"
