Instructions Checklist

  • Heat remaining tablespoon oil in skillet over medium. Sprinkle chicken with coriander; season with salt and pepper. Cook (in batches if necessary), turning once, until opaque throughout, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Transfer to a cutting board, and thinly slice crosswise.

  • Add pistachios, lettuce, parsley, and scallions to bowl with dressing, and toss to combine. Divide among serving bowls; top with chicken, feta, and oranges.

Cook's Notes

Cooking nuts in a skillet just until golden makes them extra crunchy and intensifies their flavor. Remove them from the skillet right after toasting to prevent overbrowning.

For those of you looking for nutritional values, I really don't believe anybody at MSLiving is reading our comments. Why would they pay somebody to do that? You're going to have to find a different way to let them know you want them. My best suggestion is to buy the magazine. The nutritional values are in there. Or, just insert the recipe into one of the MANY recipe calculators on the internet. Does anybody have anything to say about the recipe itself???

If this recipe has been published in the Everyday Food magazine, it very well may have the nutritional values listed. They generally do.

while i agree that it would be nice if nutritional values were included, it is simply not that difficult to get that information on your own. in far less time that it is taking to type this comment, i found a site where you can enter a recipe and have the values calculated for you... http://recipes.sparkpeople.com/recipe-calculator.asp

Has anyone ever got a reply as to why they refused to add the nutritional values? It is extremely important to diabetics and this says, that they don't care. I have been asking for a very long time and won't make anything without it.
