Prepare the Ingredients
Place mushrooms in a mixing bowl and cover with hot water. Set aside, 2 minutes.
While mushrooms sit, peel and mince shallot.
After 2 minutes, remove mushrooms from water and coarsely chop.
Quarter apple and remove core. Cut into ¼" slices.
Pat chicken dry, and season both sides with a pinch of salt and pepper.
Make the Bacon Vinaigrette
Place a medium non-stick pan over medium heat. Add bacon and half the shallot (reserve remaining for sauce) to hot pan. Stir occasionally until warmed through, 2-3 minutes.
Transfer shallot and bacon to a mixing bowl and combine with vinegar, 2 Tbsp. olive oil, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Set aside.
Wipe pan clean and reserve.
Cook the Chicken
Return pan used to cook bacon and shallot to medium heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil.
Add chicken breasts to hot pan and cook until browned and chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 5-7 minutes per side.
Transfer chicken to a plate and tent with foil.
Reserve pan; no need to wipe clean.
Make the Sauce
Return pan used to cook chicken to medium heat. Add porcini and remaining shallot to hot pan. Cook until shallot softens, 60-90 seconds.
Add ¼ cup water, cream cheese, and Parmesan. Stir until cream cheese is melted and combined, 1-2 minutes.
Remove from burner and season with a pinch of salt and pepper.
If sauce is too thick, add additional water, 1 Tbsp. at a time, until desired consistency is reached.
Toss Salad and Finish Dish
To bowl with bacon vinaigrette, add spinach, apple, walnuts, and a pinch of salt. Gently combine.
