Before You Cook
To ensure food safety, the FDA recommends the following as minimum internal cooking temperatures:
- Steak and Pork 145° F (rest cooked meat, 3 minutes) |
- Seafood 145° F |
- Chicken 165° F |
- Ground Beef 160° F |
- Ground Turkey 165° F |

Prepare the Ingredients
Peel and slice shallot into very thin rounds. Coarsely chop pistachios. Trim tops off golden beet and red beet, peel, halve, and cut into 1/4" dice. Keep beets separate. Pat chicken breasts dry, and season both sides with 1/2 tsp. salt and 1/4 tsp. pepper.
Roast the Beets
Place golden beet and red beet on separate halves of prepared baking sheet. Toss both with 1/2 tsp. olive oil, 1/4 tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper. Roast until tender, 20-25 minutes. Set aside to cool. While beets roast, make dressing.
Make the Dressing
Combine Champagne vinegar, 2 Tbsp. olive oil, honey, 1/4 tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper in a large mixing bowl. Add shallot rounds (to taste) and set aside.
Cook the Chicken
Heat 2 tsp. olive oil in a medium oven-safe pan over medium-high heat. Add chicken to hot pan and cook undisturbed until browned, 3-4 minutes. Flip chicken, place pan in oven, and roast until chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 8-10 minutes. Carefully, remove chicken from pan and rest 5 minutes.
Finish the Salad
Slice chicken. Add arugula and beets to bowl with vinaigrette. Toss to coat.
Plate the Dish
Place a serving of salad on a plate and garnish with goat cheese (breaking up with your hands if needed) and pistachios. Serve chicken next to salad.
