Remove the meat from the chicken and shred it into bite-sized pieces. In a large bowl, combine the chicken, fennel, red onion, celery and toss. Set aside.

In a skillet, heat the Colavita Extra Virgin Olive Oil over moderate heat, add the garlic and sauté until golden. As soon as the garlic has colored, add the lemon juice all at once. Remove from heat and set aside to cool; then add to the chicken mixture. Add the parsley, mayonnaise, zest, salt and pepper. Serve on a bed of arugula, top with orange segments, scatter blueberries on top of each.
