2 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
Salt and pepper
1 cup apple cider
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 tablespoons olive oil
3 heads Belgian endive, halved lengthwise, cut crosswise into 1/2-inch-thick pieces
1 cup torn romaine lettuce leaves
1 small eating apple, halved, stemmed, cored and thinly sliced
1/4 cup toasted sliced almonds


Hands-on: 25 Minutes
Total: 45 Minutes

1. Season chicken on both sides with salt and pepper. Place in a small skillet and pour in cider. Cover and cook over medium heat until chicken is cooked through, about 20 minutes. Remove chicken to a shallow bowl. Increase heat to high and bring cider to a boil. Cook until thick, syrupy and reduced to about 1 Tbsp., about 6 minutes (watch carefully, as it can burn quickly). Pour over chicken. Allow to cool completely.

2. Combine vinegar, lemon juice, mustard, 1/2 tsp. salt and 1/8 tsp. pepper in a large salad bowl. Whisk until salt has dissolved, then slowly drizzle in both oils while whisking. Whisk until blended and thickened.

3. Just before serving, cut chicken into 1-inch cubes. Add to bowl with dressing along with any juices that have accumulated in bowl. Add endive, romaine, apple and almonds. Toss well. Season with salt and pepper.
