How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat broiler with rack set 3 in. from heat. Combine salt, 3/4 tsp. pepper, 2 tbsp. rosemary, and the oil. Oil a rimmed baking sheet. Rub chicken all over with rosemary mixture and put on baking sheet.

Step 2

Brown bacon in a 12-in. frying pan over medium-high heat, stirring often, 5 to 8 minutes. Transfer to paper towels with a slotted spoon. Pour fat into a heatproof container, then spoon 2 tbsp. fat back into pan.

Step 3

Broil chicken until just cooked through, turning once, about 8 minutes total. Remove from heat and cover with foil to keep warm.

Step 4

Meanwhile, cook shallots in bacon pan over medium heat, stirring often, until softened and lightly browned, 5 to 8 minutes. Add raisins and wine to pan; bring to a boil and cook, stirring occasionally, until about 3 tbsp. liquid is left, 1 to 2 minutes. Stir in remaining 1/4 tsp. pepper and 1/2 tsp. rosemary.

Step 5

Remove from heat and add arugula and bacon. Toss very gently to coat (pan will be very full; use a bowl if you like). Season to taste with salt and pepper. Transfer salad to a platter and arrange chicken paillards on top.

Chef's Notes

Wine pairing: A rich but sprightly white like Etude 2013 Pinot Gris (Carneros; $28), with sweet fruit for the raisins and fresh lemon for the greens. --Sara Schneider
