Arugula and Spinach Mix
Before starting, preheat the oven to 425°F. Wash and dry all produce.
Cut four sections off nectarine, avoiding the pit. Cut each section into 1/4-inch slices. Peel, then cut a quarter of the onion into 1/4-inch slices (use half the onion for 4 ppl). Roughly tear basil. Zest, then juice half the lemon (whole lemon for 4 ppl).
Heat a large non-stick pan over medium heat. While the pan heats, pat chicken dry with paper towels. Season with salt and half the Lemon-Pepper Seasoning (use all for 4 ppl). When hot, add 1/2 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl), then chicken to the pan. Sear, until golden-brown, 2-3 min per side.
Transfer chicken to a parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake in the middle of the oven, until cooked through, 10-12 min.**
While chicken bakes, whisk together lemon zest, Dijon, half the apricot spread (use all for 4 ppl), 1 tsp water, 2 tbsp oil and 1 tbsp lemon juice (dbl all for 4 ppl) in a small bowl. Season with salt.
Add arugula and spinach mix, onions and nectarines to a large bowl. Drizzle half the vinaigrette over top, then toss to combine.
