Ingredients

Lemon-Basil Vinaigrette:
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated lemon zest
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
Salad:
  • 1 1/2 cup frozen shelled edamame
  • 450 g boneless skinless chicken breasts (about 2)
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon each chopped fresh thyme, fresh tarragon and fresh basil
  • pinch each salt and pepper
  • 1 pkg (142 g) arugula
  • 1 cup blueberry
  • 1/3 cup toasted unsalted pumpkin seed

Method

Lemon-Basil Vinaigrette: In small bowl, whisk together lemon zest, lemon juice, basil, mustard, salt and pepper; slowly whisk in oil. Set aside.

Salad: In saucepan of boiling salted water, cook edamame for 1 minute. Drain and let cool to room temperature.

Meanwhile, between plastic wrap, use meat mallet or heavy-bottomed saucepan to flatten chicken to 1/2-inch (1 cm) thickness.

Whisk together oil, thyme, tarragon, basil, salt and pepper; rub over chicken. Let stand for 30 minutes. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate in airtight container for up to 24 hours.)

Place chicken on greased grill over medium-high heat; close lid and grill, turning once, until no longer pink inside, about 8 minutes. Slice chicken.

In large bowl, toss together edamame, arugula, blueberries, pumpkin seeds and vinaigrette. Top with chicken.
