Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 lbs boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 3 large navel oranges
  • 1 fennel bulb, trimmed and coarsely diced
  • 8 cups mixed lettuce such as Boston or Bibb, washed and torn into bite-size pieces
  • 1 small red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup raspberries
  • Tangy Raspberry-Orange-Mustard Dressing:3 Tbs olive oil
  • 3 Tbs grainy mustard
  • 3 Tbs honey
  • 2 Tbs raspberry vinegar
  • 1 large navel orange, zest grated and juice squeezed
  • Salt to taste
  • freshly ground black pepper to taste

Directions

  • Set 4 dinner plates in the refrigerator.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together all ingredients for the dressing. Spoon 2 tablespoons of dressing into a large skillet and set the rest aside.
  • Over medium-low heat, add chicken and orange juice to skillet. Bring to a simmer, reduce heat to low and cover the pan. Cook chicken for 6 minutes, then turn it over and cook for another 6 minutes. Shut off heat, remove lid, and let cool in the pan for 15 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, cut off tops and bottoms of remaining 3 oranges with a sharp paring knife; peel the oranges, removing all the white pith, and slice into rounds.
  • In a large bowl, toss the fennel and lettuce with all but 2 tablespoons of the reserved dressing. Divide the lettuce mixture among the 4 chilled dinner plates. Slice the chicken into thin strips. Arrange the chicken, orange sections and onion slices on top of lettuce. Drizzle with remaining dressing, sprinkle with raspberries and serve.
