Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat and lightly oil the grate.

    Advertisement
  • Whisk 1/4 cup olive oil, balsamic vinegar, shallot, Dijon mustard, and 1/2 teaspoon salt together in a bowl until dressing is well mixed.

  • Brush 1 teaspoon oil onto cut-side of peaches.

  • Place peaches, cut-side down, onto grill and cook until heated through, about 4 minutes. Transfer peaches to a plate.

  • Brush remaining oil onto both sides of chicken breasts and season with salt.

  • Cook chicken on grill until no longer pink in the center, about 4 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C). Slice chicken into thin pieces and cut peaches into 1/2-inch thick pieces.

  • Toss arugula and dressing together in a bowl. Divide dressed arugula among plates; top with peaches and chicken.

First off this salad is DELICIOUS. Honestly one of the best I've had in quite a while. The flavors go so well together - the peppery arugula the sweet and tangy peaches and the grilled chicken. Yum. The directions are a little confusing. In Step 2 you are making the dressing for the salad. Set this aside. You then take the remaining (plain) oil and use that to brush on the cut peaches and chicken before grilling. That said this really doesn't give much flavor to the chicken. My recommendation is to just mix all the oil together into the dressing then take a couple teaspoons of the dressing and brush THAT onto the peaches and chicken. I mean you're mixing up dressing anyway why not give the chicken a kick? This makes 6 very small servings especially once you toss the arugula with the dressing as it shrinks down some. In my opinion 4 chicken breasts is a lot for 8 cups of arugula. Here are the proportions I recommend for 2 entree size portions: keep all the ingredients the same except use 2 (4oz) chicken breasts. Given the adjustments I had to make this is still a 5 star recipe not only for it's ease but for the impressive payoff! Thank you Trisha for sharing your recipe! Read More

So I didn't make this as a salad. I was looking for a quick chicken dish that was yummy... I doubled the dressing chopped the peach up and put it in the dressing. Poured the dressing over chicken tenders in a 9x13 pan. Baked the chicken till done - about 30 minutes at 375. It was amazing. Served with rice and broccoli. Quick easy yummy dinner. Read More

Peaches and chicken were great. I would have preferred a sweet dressing for the arugula. The dressing was good but not for this application imho. Read More
