Chicken Breast With Shaved Brussels Sprouts

Chicken Breast With Shaved Brussels Sprouts Recipe

Ingredients

  • 2 (8-ounce) boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt, divided
  • 2 broccoli stems
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 cups thinly sliced Brussels sprouts (from 12 medium)
  • 2 celery stalks, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup toasted hazelnuts
  • 1/4 cup fresh flat-leaf parsley, coarsely chopped
  • 1 ounce Parmesan cheese, coarsely grated

Preparation

1. Place chicken and 1/2 teaspoon salt in a small saucepan and cover with water; bring to a boil. Immediately remove from heat, cover, and let stand 15 minutes. Drain chicken and run under cold water. Cool completely; set aside. Using 2 forks, shred into bite-size pieces; reserve.

2. Meanwhile, use a vegetable peeler to remove outer layer of broccoli stems; discard. Continue peeling stems into long strips. In a large bowl, whisk together oil, lemon juice, and 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper. Add broccoli strips, Brussels sprouts, celery, hazelnuts, parsley, and reserved chicken to bowl with dressing; toss. Divide among 4 shallow bowls. Top with cheese.
