Ingredients:

• 4 large eggs
• 1/3 cup plus 1 tablespoon, olive oil, divided
• 2 large boneless, skinless chicken breasts (1 pound total)
• Kosher salt and pepper
• 2 tablespoons sherry vinegar
• 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
• 1 teaspoon sugar
• 8 cup torn lettuce leaves or greens
• 1 pound tomatoes (of mixed sizes, such as Campari, grape, and cherry), halved or cut into wedges
• 1 avocado, sliced
• 1/2 small red onion, thinly sliced
• 4 slices bacon, cooked and broken into pieces
• Crumbled blue cheese and toasted sandwich bread, for serving

Directions:

1. Heat oven to 400°F. Bring a small pot of water to a boil. Add eggs and cook for 7 minutes. Transfer to a bowl of cold water to cool; peel and set aside.
2. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a medium oven-safe skillet on medium-high. Season chicken with 1/2 teaspoon each salt and pepper and cook until browned, 2 to 3 minutes. Flip chicken over, cook 1 minute more, then transfer skillet to oven and roast chicken until cooked through, 5 to 7 minutes. Transfer chicken to a cutting board and let sit at least 5 minutes before slicing.
3. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk together vinegar, mustard, sugar, and 1/2 teaspoon of each salt and pepper. Gradually whisk in the remaining 1/3 cup oil.
4. Halve eggs. Arrange lettuce, tomatoes, avocado, onion, bacon, eggs, and chicken on a platter. Serve with vinaigrette, and blue cheese, and toast if desired.
