chicken caesar salad, an easy dinner idea

Directions

  • Rinse the lettuce thoroughly to avoid or get rid of any bacteria or bug in it. Do this every time you deal with raw vegetables.
  • Cut the lettuce into pieces. The purists recommend cutting them into big chunks or not cutting them at all, but I love it when you don’t have to use your knife to eat a salad. I think it is nicer to eat if you cut it into mouth-size pieces.

  • Deep fry the croutons
  • Dice the grilled chicken breasts (works wonders with chicken leftovers)
  • Cut the garlic clove into tiny pieces

Serving

  • Lay the lettuce on a large dish
  • Spread the chicken over it
  • Bath the lettuce and chicken with the Caesar Sauce
  • Place some croutons on top
  • Decorate with Parmesan Cheese flakes

  • Now it’s time for the vinegar the mustard and the Worcestershire Sauce. Stir for a little while.
  • The creamy texture is given by the eggs with the olive oil shaking it along with the yolks.
  • We add oil over the yolks in a thread while we keep stirring it all vigorously, almost like shaking it. This is called “emulsifying

LEARN MORE ABOUT THIS RECIPE


The origin of this “Chicken Caesar Salad recipe” is attributed to Cesar Cardini. According to history, the Italian chef Cesar Cardini ran several restaurants in both Mexico and the USA back in the early years of the 20th century. It is said that Cardini invented this recipe by chance, a Fourth of July had his kitchen run out of supplies and he hat to make up a dish with whatever he had left in the kitchen. He came up with this recipe and named it “by the chef”. Also, the lettuce leaves were not meant to be chopped and they were supposed to be eaten with their fingers. The sauce did not have anchovies but the anchovy flavor was given by the Worcestershire sauce.

But this is only the origins. After that people felt that the recipe was incomplete. There was something missing here… Yes! The chicken!


Chicken was what it was left to become a masterpiece.
