    What you need
    Serves 6

    For the Wine-Poached Chicken

    • 2 quarts low sodium chicken broth
    • 4 cups white wine
    • 2 yellow onions, halved
    • 4 cloves Garlic, smashed
    • 3 sprigs fresh thyme
    • 3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts

    For the Pomegranate Mixed Greens Salad

    • 6 cups Mixed Greens
    • ½ cup pomegranate seeds (arils)
    • 3 tablespoons roasted, salted pepitas
    • ½ cup jicama, peeled and chopped
    • 2 avocados, pitted, peeled and chopped
    • Classic Balsamic Dressing

    Instructions

    1. Place the broth, wine, onions, garlic and thyme in a large pot over medium heat. Bring the mixture to a boil, then gently add the chicken breasts one at a time. The chicken should be fully covered by the liquid, add more broth if needed. Return to a boil.
    2. Once the liquid boils, turn off the heat and cover the pot. Allow the chicken to poach for 30 minutes, then use a slotted spoon to remove the chicken and onions from the liquid. Once cool enough to handle, shred the chicken and slice the onions. Combine the chicken and onion in a bowl and generously season with freshly cracked sea salt and black pepper.
    3. On each salad plate arrange a bed of mixed greens and top with pomegranate seeds, pepitas, jicama, avocado and a scoop of the chicken. Drizzle with Classic Balsamic Dressing and serve immediately. The chicken will keep up to 3 days in the fridge. Enjoy!
