Directions

  1. To plate this dish, prepare a base of barley and lentils in bowls. Top evenly with spinach, butternut squash, cranberries, walnuts, and Goat’s cheese. Finish with a warm 2 oz (60 g) serving of pulled chicken and a drizzle of maple Dijon vinaigrette.

*To prepare Maple Dijon Vinaigrette:
Combine 2 Tbsp (30 mL) maple syrup, 1 Tbsp (15 mL) Dijon mustard, 2 Tbsp (30 mL) apple cider vinegar, ½ cup (125 mL) canola oil

Chef’s Tip:
To take this recipe to the next level, try an optional addition of crumbled blue cheese. If the consumer wants another level to their protein addition, try a 2:1 ratio of maple syrup to sriracha and then toss your pulled chicken in it prior to service.
