Chicken Caesar Salad

Caesar Salad is a salad originating in Tijuana, Mexico in the mid-1920’s. It’s not a salad named after Julius Caesar, but after the Italian restauranteur who invented it … Caesar Cardini!

Caesar was rumored to be out of ingredients after a big rush and scrambled to come up with something interesting, mixing the now famous ingredients together … table side! Necessity is the mother of invention and … what an invention it was!

Caesar Salads are almost always served with croutons. While obviously the recipe can be served without them and still be quite delicious … I’ve opted to keep them. The salad can really use the contrasting tastes and textures. Plus … they just look nice!

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup caesar salad dressing
  • 6 cups romaine lettuce washed and cut into ribbons
  • 1 1/2 cups garlic croutons
  • 1 1/2 lbs chicken breasts boneless and skinless
  • 2 tbsp light olive oil for grilling
  • 1/4 cup parmesan (reggiano) cheese grated
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Pre-heat a grill.
  • In a large salad bowl, mix together the salad dressing, romaine lettuce and croutons. Adjust seasoning with salt and pepper.
  • Coat your chicken breasts with the oil and evenly season with salt and pepper (note: chicken thighs or chicken with skin is all completely appropriate and will work. I listed it as skinless, because finding boneless chicken with skin is difficult to do)
  • Grill the chicken until cooked through (internal temperature of 165 F).
  • Divide your salad onto 6 plates.
  • Slice your chicken and place on top of each salad.
  • Garnish with grated parmesan cheese.
  • Serve!
