Chicken Caesar Salad




It's a beautiful day here already and the weather is supposed to be fairly warm and nothing says spring like a nice salad. I was looking for an easy recipe since we will be busy with Easter prep and dying eggs so I am going to give this chicken caesar recipe a try.

Chicken Caesar Salad-Slightly modified from Cooking Light



      Salad:
      1 (2-pound) whole roasted chicken, skinned
      11 cups torn romaine lettuce (about 1 1/4 pounds)
      1 cup red bell pepper strips ( I plan on leaving these out)
     
      Vinaigrette:
      3 tablespoons olive oil
      1 1/2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
      2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
      2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
      1/4 teaspoon sugar
      1/4 teaspoon salt
      1/4 teaspoon black pepper
      1 garlic clove, crushed
      1 1/2 cups plain croutons 1/2 cup
      (2 ounces) grated fresh Parmesan cheese

(optional-I plan on adding two sliced hard boiled eggs to my salad)

Preparation

  1. To prepare salad, remove chicken from bones; shred with 2 forks to measure 3 cups meat. Combine chicken, lettuce, and bell pepper in a large bowl.
  2. To prepare vinaigrette, combine oil and next 7 ingredients (oil through garlic) in a bowl, stirring well with a whisk. Pour over salad; toss well. Sprinkle with croutons and cheese; toss gently to combine. Serve with a side of garlic bread or dinner rolls and enjoy!
