Chicken Caesar Salad with Fresh Veggies

leave a comment »

On a hot spring/summer day, the last thing you want to do is be in the kitchen slaving away over a hot stove. Chicken Caesar Salad is a great summer meal: cold, refreshing, healthy and delicious. It is also ridiculously easy and quick to make. This could be a great appetizer for a larger meal or a dinner party! We had three kinds of raw veggies to much on between creamy chicken caesar salad bites: carrots, green beans, celery. They really helped clean the plate of creamy caesar dressing.

Chicken Caesar Salad

Refreshing, Delicious, Creamy Chicken Caesar Salad

Cook the chicken the same way as you would in Lemon-Herb Chicken. In a pan with some olive oil, season chicken breast with herbs & ground pepper, when it’s almost done, squirt them with lemon juice (use fresh lemons to make it even tastier!). While the chicken is cooking, wash and prepare the lettuce. ESC utilized the “Rip-Em-Apart” method to tear the lettuce into bite sized pieces. The chicken should be about done so get out your cutting board! Chop the chicken into small bites and let them cool a bit. Toss the lettuce with dressing and Parmesan, add chicken and toss again. Top with fresh ground pepper and more Parm.

Ingredients:
1 Chicken Breast
~6 Large Romaine Leaves, chopped/torn
1/3 cup Creamy Caesar Dressing
1/3 cup Parmesan cheese
Pepper
~3 tbsp Lemon Juice
Assorted fresh veggies

Makes 2 large plates of salad. Total Time: 15 minutes. ~$3/plate. Very healthy, use Lite Caesar Dressing!
