In This Recipe
I use chicken right from the supermarket-- try to make recipe with room-temp chicken where possible.
Put chicken meat in bowl. sometimes to serve 2 I just use white meat plus the chicken thighs. Shred the meat evenly if time permits.
Cut baby endives on the diagonal in very thin slices. This should make between 1/2 cup and 1 cup. Do not panic if you have more-- relax.
Slice green onions as thinly as possible by hand
Heat slivered almonds in 1 generous tablespoon butter in microwave if no toasted almonds
Juice the lemon using a strainer to catch seeds. Put juice in glass measuring cup. Then add grainy mustard,whisking until combined. Then add Maille or Grey-Poupon mustard. Then add 1/2 c olive oil and whisk until emulsified.
