Getting Your Kids Involved:

Kids can halve the potatoes and chop the herbs with a child-safe knife.

Encouraging Picky Eaters:

To make salad easier for kids to eat, try chopping it into small pieces and don’t dress it. Let kids pour the vinaigrette on their serving.

1Step One

Coarsely chop the thyme, including the stems. Remove the rosemary leaves from the stems and coarsely chop. Set the Italian parsley aside for step 2. Cut off the top of each garlic clove and then peel each one by crushing them lightly with the flat of a knife and the heel of your hand. Discard the papery skins. Pour the chicken marinade into a bowl and stir in the chopped rosemary, thyme, and garlic into the marinade. Add the chicken paillards to the bowl and mix to coat well. Let sit for about 10 minutes.

2Step Two

Halve or quarter the potatoes and place in a medium pot with enough water to cover them. Bring to a boil and simmer for 2 minutes to heat through.*

While the potatoes are cooking, pull the leaves off of the Italian parsley and slice into thin ribbons. Drain the water from the potatoes and place them in a large mixing bowl along with the parsley. Shake the sherry vinaigrette vigorously and drizzle over the potatoes to taste. Add salt and pepper to taste, then gently toss to coat.

3Step Three

Place the arugula mix into a separate large bowl. Halve or quarter the tomatoes, thinly slice the Persian cucumbers into coins and add both to the baby wild arugula mix.

Shake the red wine balsamic vinaigrette well and drizzle it over the salad to taste. Toss to coat and then sprinkle the shaved Parmesan on top.

4Step Four

Open the chicken paillards, lightly coat the bottom of a large sauté pan with the chicken marinade from the pouch, and place over medium heat. When the marinade is hot, remove the paillards from the chicken marinade.  Let any excess marinade drain off and place the paillards in the pan.

Cook for 3-4 minutes on each side, until golden. Divide the salad onto plates and lay a chicken paillard on top of each one. Serve with the warm potato salad on the side.

  • * If you prefer your potato salad to be room temperature, simply halve or quarter the potatoes and toss them into a tablespoon of the red balsamic vinaigrette, saving the rest for the salad (no need to boil the potatoes, they’re pre-cooked).
