How to make it

  • In a shallow pan over medium-high heat, combine the wine, water, vinegar, 1 tsp. of the salt and the peppercorns. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to low and simmer for 5 minutes. Add the chicken, cover and poach until just opaque, 6 to 8 minutes. Remove the chicken from the liquid and let cool for 5 minutes, then cut into cubes.
  • Cut the grapefruit segments in half crosswise. In a bowl, combine the chicken, grapefruit and half of the pistachios. Add the mayonnaise, mustard, cilantro, lime juice, the remaining 1/2 tsp. salt and the ground pepper and mix well.
  • Divide the lettuce leaves among 4 salad plates. Fill each leaf with chicken salad, sprinkle with paprika and garnish with the remaining pistachios. Serve immediately.

    Love the pistachio nut and grapefruit combo. I adore grapefruit and this was a special treat. Made a very good lunch. I left out the cilantro-hubby can't abide the stuff. Very nice method in poaching the chicken boobs, by the way.
