Chicken Caesar Salad


This was probably the best dinner Mark and I have made in a few months...It is just a salad, but what we put in it (with just extra stuff lying around our fridge) really took it up a few notches.

What we put in it:
  • 3/4 of a bag of leafy Romaine lettuce
  • 1 cup of chopped chicken (advice: buy a rotisserie chicken at the beginning of the week and use the meat all week in salads for lunch or use for dinner in pasta or Mexican dishes)
  • 1/2 cup grape (or cherry) tomatoes
  • 2 strips of cooked bacon, chopped
  • 1/2 cup of croutons (I made my own. Cooked in the bacon grease..whoops! I'll post the recipe below)
  • 1/2 cup or so of Ken's Lite Caesar Dressing
  • 1/4 cup of shredded Parmesan cheese
What's good about this recipe is you don't have to follow the measurements or
ingredients exactly and if you want to put in other things, feel free to.

Recipe for croutons:
  • a few pieces of day old bread, chopped
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1/4 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • a few tbsp of oil (I used bacon grease because I had it left over from cooking the bacon)
Directions for croutons..
  • Heat oil in frying pan
  • Drop in chopped bread
  • Season and fry up for about 5 minutes
ENJOY.
