3/4 cup wild rice (I use an asian 7 grain multigrain instead of wild rice)

kosher salt

2 small apples, or 1 large apple, cut into 1/2” pieces

2 medium sweet potatoes, cut into half moons

neutral oil

black pepper

1 head of romaine lettuce

5 cups of kale

5 ounces of Chèvre goat cheese

1/2 cup roasted, chopped almonds (optional)

1 ½ lbs chicken breast

1 ½ teaspoons kosher salt

zest of 1/2 lemon

juice of 1/4 lemon

1 teaspoon garlic powder

1 tablespoon of neutral oil

Juice of ½ lemon

2 tablespoons of balsamic vinegar

½ teaspoon kosher salt

1 tablespoon honey

Black pepper

1 teaspoon of dijon mustard

1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil


Cook the wild rice according to package directions. Since I used the 7 grain rice, I made this similar to how I make rice. In a small pot, add the 3/4 cup of multigrain rice, 1.25 cups of water, and pinch of kosher salt. Bring up to a boil, then stir and reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook for 20 minutes, then turn off the heat and let sit with the lid on for 10 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 425F.

Prep the sweet potatoes – peel the sweet potatoes, then cut them into half moons that are about 1/4” thick. Add this to a baking sheet, drizzle with neutral oil, kosher salt, and black pepper, and give everything a toss. Bake for 20 minutes, or until cooked through and soft.

Prepare the remaining vegetables – chop the romaine, kale, and apples.

Butterfly the chicken breasts and season with the kosher salt, neutral oil, black pepper, lemon juice, lemon zest, and garlic powder. Give everything a mix.

Heat a pan on medium high heat, then sear the seasoned chicken breasts for about 3-4 minutes on each side. Once cooked (internal temperature is at 165F), remove from the heat and chop into 1” cubes.

Make the dressing by combining all the ingredients in a bowl or jar. Whisk until smooth, taste, then adjust seasoning as desired.

Assemble the salad by combining the greens, goat cheese, wild rice, apples, sweet potatoes, chicken, and almonds. Add the dressing over the top, mix, taste for more dressing as desired, and serve!
