Caesar Salad with Homemade Croutons

I have a real problem with sharp objects.  Today I was simply peeling potatoes with a brand new peeler, and I took off a part of my finger!  I know I need stitches, but for now, I am typing this with 3 band-aids typed around my very sore left index finger... so forgive me for any typos!!

But I am so excited to share one of my all-time favorite recipes with you!!  Whenever I ask my husband what he'd like to eat during the week, he always says chicken caesar salad.  You have got to try this one out.  You will not be disappointed!  Is your mouth watering yet??

Chicken Caesar Salad

5-6 chicken breasts
1 head of lettuce (I prefer Romaine)
1 loaf of fresh French bread or sour dough bread

1 bottle, Ken's Light Caesar dressing
1 bottle, Cardini's Caesar regular dressing
Fresh parmesan cheese
Olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and Italian seasoning ~ to taste

Marinate chicken in Ken's Light Caesar dressing for at least 2 hours.  Cook on Foreman grill.  (I have tried broiling it, but I highly recommend using a grill.  It turns out much more juicy!)  Slice when cool.

Make croutons by cutting French bread or sour dough bread into 1-1.5 inch cubes.  Make a puddle of olive oil on tray and then toss bread cubes into the oil.  Sprinkle with balsamic vinegar and Italian seasoning.  Bake at 350 for 7-8 minutes.  Turn halfway through with a pancake turner.  (You don't want to overcook these beauties!  You just want to lightly toast them.)
Make the dressing by mixing 3 parts of Cardini's Caesar regular dressing with 1 part of Ken's Caesar light dressing.  **You really have to use these specific brands... it makes the yummiest Caesar dressing!**

Build the salad like this:
1.  Chopped lettuce
2.  Sliced chicken
3.  Freshly grated parmesan cheese.
4.  Croutons.
5.  Dressing.
I am not even a huge salad fan, but this recipe is DELISH!!  The croutons are my favorite part for sure.  I could eat a whole tray full for dinner.  If you try this out, let me know!!

    I am so not ambitious enough to make my own croutons. But yours look devine! I do make my own Ceasar salad dressing, and its not too shabby, if I do say so myself. Our house favorite is shrimp Ceasar salad. 🙂

    Thanks for sharing!
