Ingredients

2 six-ounce skinless and boneless chicken breasts

3 cups fat-free, reduced-sodium chicken broth

3 cups baby spinach, lightly packed

4 leaves bok choy

1/2 cup sliced scallions, green and white parts

2 clementines

1 tablespoon fresh lime juice

1 tablespoon rice vinegar

1 teaspoon reduced-sodium soy sauce

1 teaspoon grated ginger

1/2 teaspoon Sriracha sauce (optional)

1/4 teaspoon salt

Freshly ground black pepper

2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil

1/4 cup sliced almonds, toasted

Directions

  • In medium saucepan, place chicken and broth over medium-high heat.
  • When bubbles just appear, about 8 minutes, reduce heat and cook with liquid simmering until an instant-read thermometer registers 165 degrees when inserted into thickest part of breast, about 20 minutes.
  • Cool chicken in broth until cool enough to tear into bite-size pieces. Pour broth through strainer lined with paper towel, and reserve for another use.
  • Place spinach in salad bowl. Cut white part of bok choy leaves crosswise into thin slices, and add to spinach. Reserve green, leafy part to use in soup or stir-fry.
  • Add scallions, and arrange chicken over greens.
  • Cut one clementine crosswise into thin slices. Remove peel, separate slices into thin wedges, and add to salad.
  • Halve remaining clementine crosswise, and squeeze juice into small bowl.
  • Add lime juice, vinegar, soy sauce, ginger, Sriracha sauce (if using), salt and 3 to 4 grinds pepper, whisking to combine. Whisk in oil.
  • Pour dressing over salad. Sprinkle with almonds.
  • To serve, toss salad and divide among 4 wide salad bowls or medium-sized plates.
