-Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
-3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
-1/2 cup diced red onion
-4 to 6 cups (1 large bunch) loosely packed spinach (not baby), washed, dried, stems removed (I know it says not baby but I used baby spinach!)
-2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
-2 ripe Anjou pears, peeled, cored and cut into 1/2-inch-thick slices
-2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
-3/4 cup blue cheese crumbles
Preheat oven to 375°F. Generously season each chicken breast with salt and pepper.
In a large, oven-proof skillet heat 1 tablespoon olive oil and sear breasts 2 to 3 minutes each side until lightly golden. Place pan in oven and bake until chicken is cooked through, about 15 minutes.
While chicken is cooking, heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large pan
over medium heat and sauté red onion until just softened, 2 to 3 minutes.
Add spinach and toss until wilted. Season with salt and pepper and transfer
to a large platter or divide evenly between 4 plates.
Wipe out pan and heat remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil with vinegar.
Add pears and gently heat until warm. Stir in parsley.
Arrange cooked chicken breasts on spinach. Top with warmed pear slices
and about 2 tablespoons blue cheese per breast.
