About this recipe

The recipe was supplied by Chef Rick Lewis, Epicurean Group, as a part of the article, "Meet the Farmer" Food Event.

Preparation

Directions:

Preheat oven 350 degrees.

In a large bowl add the flour, kosher salt, ground black pepper and mix well. In small batches, add the chicken tenderloins and coat well. In a sauté pan over medium heat add 1/2 cup of extra virgin olive oil.  When the oil is hot, cooking in small batches sear – do not fully cook – the chicken tenderloins on all sides.  Place on a paper-towel-lined plate to drain. 

Trim the bottoms of the baby red leaf lettuce and wash gently, allow to air dry. Arrange the chicken tenderloins on a baking sheet and place in a 350-degree oven. Cook until the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees, about 6 to 8 minutes.  

While the chicken is cooking, prepare the vinaigrette.  Using a mason jar, add all ingredients. Cover tightly with the lid and shake vigorously for one minute. Place the lettuce and golden raisins into a large bowl. Using a sharp knife or mandolin, julienne the Frog Hollow Farm Asian pears. Add the julienned pears to the lettuce-raisin mixture, add the vinaigrette and toss gently. 

To Serve:

Divide the mixture onto four dinner plates, slice 3 cooked chicken tenderloins on the bias and place on each plate of lettuce mixture.
