Chopped fresh dill may be substituted for the tarragon and diced Belgian endive for the fennel. The resulting salad will have a more Scandinavian flavor than this Mediterranean appetizer.

Wine Pairing

This pairs well with crisp, medium-bodied white wines like the Spottswoode Sauvignon Blanc, Napa County/Sonoma County from our Wine Club.

Directions:

Make the crostini
Preheat an oven to 350°F. Arrange the baguette slices on a baking sheet and brush lightly with the olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. Bake until golden, 10 to 15 minutes. Transfer to a platter.

Cook the chicken
Meanwhile, grate 1/2 tsp. zest from the lemon. Halve the lemon and squeeze 1 tsp. juice. Set the zest and juice aside.

Season both sides of the chicken breasts with salt and pepper. In a large fry pan over medium heat, warm the canola oil. Add the chicken and cook until golden brown and opaque, 4 to 5 minutes per side. Transfer to a cutting board and let stand for 5 minutes.

Prepare the chicken salad
In a bowl, combine the lemon zest and juice, fennel, green onion, the 3/4 tsp. tarragon, the mayonnaise, the 3/4 tsp. salt and pepper. Mix until smooth.

Chop the chicken finely. Add to the fennel mixture and toss until thoroughly blended. Spoon a generous tablespoonful of the salad onto each crostini, garnish with tarragon and serve. Makes 28 crostini.
