Olive oil cooking spray
1 pound skinless boneless chicken breast halves
1/4 plus 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt; divided
1/4 plus 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper; divided
1/2 cup silken soft tofu
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1 1/2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
1 1/2 teaspoons red wine vinegar
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
3/4 teaspoon minced garlic
1/2 teaspoon anchovy paste
1 tablespoon water
2 tablespoons grated and 1/4 cup shaved fresh Parmesan cheese
8 cups romaine lettuce cut crosswise into 2-inch strips
1 1/4 cups fat-free croutons

Original recipe makes 4 Servings



1. Heat grill pan to medium-high. Mist chicken breasts with olive oil spray, and season with 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper. Grill chicken until just cooked through, about 5–6 minutes per side. Place chicken on a cutting board and let rest about 5 minutes to allow juices to redistribute; cut into bite-size pieces.

2. Mix next 8 ingredients and remaining salt and pepper in a blender until well-combined and creamy, scraping down blender sides, as necessary. Add 1 tablespoon water to thin. Stir in grated Parmesan.

3. Toss lettuce, croutons, and dressing in a large bowl; divide among 4 plates. Arrange chicken over salads, sprinkling each evenly with shaved Parmesan
