Why I Love This Recipe

Salad on a giant crouton

Ingredients You'll Need

1 lb Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts
1 1/2 Romaine Lettuce, Chopped
1/3 cup Parmesan, Shaved Or Shredded
1 French Bread
1/4 cup Creamy Caesar Dressing, Or Regular
2 Tbsp Oil
5 Garlic Cloves, 3 Chicken/2 Bread
1 tsp Oregano
1 tsp Basil
1.2 tsp Rosemary
1/2 tsp Thyme


Oven Temperature: 350°F

*Bake french bread until golden brown and cooked, if not already

*Remove from oven and set aside to cool

*Chop lettuce, mince or crush 3 garlic cloves, peel and leave whole the other 2 cloves

*Cut chicken into even strips, season with spices

*Add oil to pan on medium-high heat, turning once until cooked through; set aside to rest a few minutes (the chicken - not the cook)

*Cut cooked bread loaf into thin slices; lay each slice on baking pan and return to oven; cook another 5 minutes; flip and cook additional 5 minutes (time will depend on thickness of slices)

*Once toasted, remove from oven, brush with melted butter, and spread butter by rubbing with garlic cloves (will add subtle flavor without the chunks)

*Toss the chopped lettuce with the dressing and cheese; mound a small handful of salad on each crouton

*Slice chicken diagonally and set atop each lettuce mountain

Recipe Tips:

*You can also use your own bread recipe or from a bread machine, in any flavor of choice

*Instead of making a giant crouton, make bite-sized ones for great appetizer - also easier to eat smaller

*Leave out the chicken for a vegetarian option
