Chicken Caesar Salad – Healthified

on July 3, 2018

Get your grills going, friends!  This Chicken Caesar Salad is deeeelish, and we love to grill the chicken, but you can certainly put it in the oven if you’d like.  This is a classic salad, with a little modification to make it “healthified” – the hubby still loved it, so hopefully you will, too!  Great for summer nights when it’s hot out and you want something light and easy.

Chicken Caesar Salad

  • Servings: 2-4
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Print

Ingredients

  • 3-4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut in half lengthwise
  • Grilling spray (optional, but my hubby likes to use it when we grill)
  • Romaine lettuce (you can buy it chopped or buy it all intact and wash and chop it yourself – up to you!)
  • 2-3 roma tomatoes, chopped
  • ½ red onion, thinly sliced
  • Shredded parmesan cheese
  • Caesar salad dressing (I use a yogurt based dressing by Bolthouse {see photo below} – tastes delicious and is much better for you!)

Directions

  • Spray grill grates with grill spray and set to medium (about 50%) heat.
  • When hot, place chicken on the grill. Grill for approximately 7 minutes, then flip, cook for another 7 minutes.  May need to flip one more time and grill an additional 2-3 minutes – just make sure the inner temperature is at least 165F.
  • When chicken is fully cooked, remove from grill and allow to cool for a few minutes. Then cut into 1” slices.
  • Place desired amount of romaine lettuce, chopped tomatoes, and thinly sliced red onion in your bowl/plate (whatever you’re using). Feel free to be generous with your servings – you really can’t go wrong with veggies!
  • Next add chicken and sprinkle a small amount of parmesan cheese (keep it to 2Tbsp or less) over your salad.
  • Drizzle with dressing (again, 2Tbsp or less) and enjoy! May crack some black pepper over the top as well.
