How to make it

- While chicken is cooking, heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large pan over medium heat and sauté red onion until just softened, 2 to 3 minutes. Add spinach and toss until wilted. Season with salt and pepper and transfer to a large platter or divide evenly between 4 plates. Wipe out pan and heat remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil with vinegar. Add pears and gently heat to warm. Stir in parsley. Place cooked chicken breasts on spinach. Top with warmed pear slices and about 2 tablespoons blue cheese per breast.
