Salt and pepper to taste

4-6 cups arugula leaves

1 green apple, thinly sliced (unpeeled)

2 tbsp chopped walnuts, toasted

In a non-stick skillet, heat 1 tablespoon olive oil over medium heat.

Sauté shallot for 3 to 5 minutes; remove from pan. Add 1 tablespoon olive oil and cook chicken, stirring occasionally, until just cooked through, approximately 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

Remove the chicken from the pan and set aside.
