Cook Time





Serves Up To




  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 pounds bone-in chicken thighs
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 4 cups watercress
  • 1 cup microgreens
  • 1 medium green apple (cored and sliced thin)
  • 3-4 small black radishes sliced thin
  • 3 mini cucumbers sliced thin lengthwise
  • 2-3 cups cooked farro
  • 1 small avocado
  • 1/4 cup lime juice
  • 1/3 cup Almond Breeze Unsweetened Original Almondmilk
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon white vinegar
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • Pinch of salt


  1. 1

    Heat olive oil in a large caste iron skillet over medium heat. Liberally sprinkle salt and pepper over chicken thighs, then place skin-side down into pan.

  2. 2

    Cook for 7-8 minutes on each side, until the skin is medium golden brown and chicken is cooked all the way through. Remove from heat and allow for chicken to rest for at least 15 minutes before serving over salad. This will help the juices to stay in the chicken, so it's super moist!

  3. 3

    Meanwhile, combine all other salad ingredients in a large bowl. Set aside.

  4. 4

    To make the dressing, place all ingredients into a blender and blend until creamy. Add 1 tablespoon of water, if necessary.

  5. 5

    Gently place chicken thighs over salad, then drizzle with dressing, and for added crunch top with your favroite flavor of gourmet almonds!
