Cook sunchokes for 10-15 minutes or until they are caramelized and becoming crispy. Remove from oven, place onto a plate lined with paper towels and season lightly with salt.

Evenly distribute lettuce between 4 plates. Place sunchokes, asparagus, English peas and orange pieces to the bowl, add any remaining vinaigrette and toss everything together, evenly distribute the vegetables over the lettuce. Cut chicken paillard into 4-5 pieces and set into onto the plate with the salad.
