    Heat 10- to 12-inch skillet over medium heat. Sprinkle chicken strips with salt and pepper. Drizzle skillet with 2 tablespoons olive oil. Add chicken; cook until browned on 1 side. Turn chicken; add asparagus, fava beans and broth. Cook until chicken is no longer pink in center and asparagus is crisp-tender.

    Meanwhile, in food processor, place all Mint Pesto ingredients except olive oil. Cover; process with on/off pulses until combined. While processor is running, pour 1/2 cup olive oil in steady stream, processing until mixture resembles pesto.

    Pour Chicken-Veggie Mixture into large serving bowl. Add radicchio and Mint Pesto; toss well to combine. Serve immediately.

Expert Tips

  • Be sure not to add the radicchio in the skillet. It’s best to add it at the end so it retains its crunch.
  • Shelled fresh sweet (green) peas can be substituted for the fava beans in this recipe.
  • Lamb or pork tenderloin would also work very well in this recipe.
