The other night, hubs asked if we could have a grilled chicken Caesar for dinner. I love a Caesar salad but it kind of sounded a little boring for my supper. Then I thought, why not put a grilled chicken Caesar between a piece of good quality crusty bread and have sandwiches. I’m so smart. Really, I’m like a genius :). This was my kind of dinner…easy, simple, filling and light. Below is how to make the salad from scratch but of course you could just buy a bagged Caesar salad from the produce department. Make it simple on yourself!
1 package pre-marinated chicken fajita meat (in the meat case department)
1 bag Romain lettuce
1 bottle good quality Caesar salad dressing
Parmesan cheese, grated
1 box Caesar croutons
Crusty bread from the bakery
Turn your outdoor grill (or inside skillet) to medium-high heat, grill chicken on both sides until cooked through (about 7 minutes per side). Remove from heat and slice.
In a large mixing bowl, combine lettuce, Caesar dressing, cheese and croutons. Take your crusty bread and layer your salad on top. Top with fajita chicken.
Was that recipe too simple to blog? Probably but hey, it’s what we ate at our house, so I’m going to share it with you. The pre-marinated fajita meat is a big hit at our house. Expect to see me use it in lots of recipes this spring and summer. Pick some up next time you’re at the grocery store.
Enjoy your Chicken Caesar Salad Sandwich!!
