Chicken Caesar Salad

This is an easy recipe adapted from djfoodie.com.  D.J. uses his own Caesar dressing, but I just used Marie’s Creamy Caesar.  I also skipped the grilling of chicken step in this recipe as I already had some cooked chicken leftovers.  🙂  Servings: 6.  Net carbs: 2.58 per serving.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 3/4 cup Caesar salad dressing
  • 6 cups romaine lettuce, washed and cut into ribbons
  • 1 1/2 cups garlic croutons (see recipe)
  • 1 1/2 pounds chicken breasts, boneless and skinless
  • 2 tablespoons light olive oil for grilling
  • 1/4 cup parmesan cheese, grated
  • salt and pepper, to taste

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. PREHEAT a grill.
  2. In a large salad bowl, mix together the salad dressing, romaine lettuce and croutons.  Adjust seasoning with salt and pepper.
  3. Coat your chicken breasts with the oil and evenly season with salt and pepper.
  4. Grill the chicken until cooked through
  5. Divide your salad onto 6 plates.
  6. Slice your chicken and place on top of each salad.
  7. Garnish with grated parmesan cheese.
  8. Serve!
