Chicken Caesar Salad

I actually made time to do a post!! 

Need a quick, easy, and delicious dinner??  Those are my favorite kind!  

This Chicken Caesar Salad is tasty and filling!  

Thanks to my Aunt Norma for the marinade recipe!  The chicken comes out so moist and flavorful!



CHICKEN CAESAR SALAD

1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1/4 cup olive oil
1 T. dijon mustard
chicken breasts or tenders
romaine lettuce, chopped
Caesar croutons
Parmesan cheese (freshly grated)
Caesar dressing
 ( I love Naturally Fresh brand found in produce dept.)


Whisk together vinegar, olive oil, and mustard.  Season chicken with salt and pepper and cover with marinade.  Let sit at least 30 minutes.

Grill over medium heat until cooked through, but not overcooked!  Slice diagonally into thin slices.

To chopped romaine lettuce add croutons, parmesan cheese, and dressing.  Add dressing slowly and toss as you go along so you don't overdress the salad!  Dress salad right before serving to prevent soggy lettuce and croutons.

On individual plates put a pile of salad.  Top with sliced chicken and a sprinkle of parmesan cheese.

Add some bread (garlic toast, ciabatta roll, focaccia bread) and you have a fabulous meal!

  1. I LOVE this:) Unfortunately, my husband thinks it was named Caesar because it smells like it's been around since he was alive, and won't touch it!!! Luckily I have several kids who will enjoy it with me:)
