Category   Entrees - Maindishes
Sub Category   None

18 large chicken breast halves (about 9 pounds)
1/4 cup and 2 Tbsp soy sauce
1/4 cup and 2 Tbsp olive oil
Freshly ground pepper
3 lbs green beans, trimmed and halved crosswise
3 Tbsp Dijon mustard
3 Tbsp balsamic vinegar or 2 1/2 Tbsp red wine vinegar
1 cup olive oil
3 Tbsp minced shallots
2 Tbsp minced fresh thyme
3 cups coarsely chopped walnuts (about 12 oz)
Ornamental kale or red leaf lettuce
6 oz goat cheese, crumbled
Additional minced fresh thyme

Preheat oven to 450F. Arrange chicken brests in single layer in jelly roll pans or baking pans. Brush both sides with soy sauce and olive oil. Sprinkle both sides with pepper. Arrange skin side up. Roast until just cooked through, about 20 minutes. Cool slightly. Skin and bone chicken; reserve drippings in pans. Cut chicken into 1/2-inch wide strips. Return to pans and turn to coat with drippings. Cool. Transfer chicken meat and drippings to large bowl. Set aside.
Cook beans in large pot of boiling salted water until crisp-tender, about 5 minutes. Drain. Refresh with cold water. Drain well (Can be prepared 1 day ahead. Cover chicken and beans separately and refrigerate.)
Combine mustard and vinegar in medium bowl. Gradually whisk in oil. Add shallots and 2 Tbsp thyme. (Can be prepared 1 day ahead. Store dressing at room temperature.)
Add beans, dressing, and walnuts to chicken and toss to coat. Season with salt and pepper. Line platter with kale. Top with salad. Sprinkle with cheese and additional thyme and serve.
