Wash hands after handling raw chicken. Place the salad greens in a large bowl; add the walnuts, blue cheese, dried cherries and celery. Refrigerate.

To prepare the dressing: Stir together the blue cheese dressing, lemon juice, salt and pepper.

Heat a large, nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. When the pan is hot, add the chicken and saute quickly until golden and cooked through. Put the chicken into the salad. Add the apple slices and dressing; toss well. Serve immediately.
