It's complicated, more work and time than I like to put into a weeknight meal. But it is FANTASTIC. Bacon in the viangrette sounds soggy, so I just add it broken up to the top of the salad.
I thought this was fantastic. I followed some of the reviews here and diced all the salad ingredients, and then shredded the chicken just before serving. I also prepped all ingredients in advance, and then heated on low in a fry pan. There are multiple steps, but its not a difficult recipe. Well worth it, a great fall dish.
Incredible! The vinaigrette was the star of this recipe. When I make it again I will use boneless chicken though.
I made this for dinner on a girls weekend and all 7 of us loved it! I did the squash and vinaigrette prep early in the day and reheated them at dinnertime; purchased rotisserie chicken; and substituted spinach and arugula as I couldn't find chard. It was fabulous and filling and an elegant dish.
