Original recipe makes 1



Season chicken breasts with salt and pepper. Heat cast iron grill pan over medium high heat. Add chicken and grill for 3-4 minutes per side or until meat is no longer pink in the middle. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a bowl whisk together olive oil, thyme, paprika and grated Parmesan. Add bread cubes and toss to coat. On a baking sheet spread out bread cubes in a single layer and bake until golden about 8-10 minutes. For the dressing, combine garlic, mustard, vinegar and two pinches of salt in a bowl and process using a hand blender or whisk. Add mayonnaise and blend together to form a thick base. In a slow stream add olive oil. Season to taste with salt, pepper and lemon juice. If desired, add anchovy to dressing to create a deeper, saltier flavor. Place ripped up romaine lettuce leaves in a large bowl and toss with several tablespoons of the dressing. Add grated Parmesan and toss to combine. Slice grilled chicken into thin strips. Arrange lettuce on a plate and top with chicken strips. Garnish with chopped parsley and anchovies, if desired.~ Recipe By :COOKS CHOICE SEAN & CATHY SHOW #CH1217 Posted to MC-Recipe Digest V1 #252 Date: Sun, 20 Oct 1996 18:10:01 -0400 From: Meg Antczak

My husband and I loved this! I used a mixture of Italian kale and romaine, and instead of using 1/4 cup olive oil on the croutons, I just sprayed them with olive oil spray which worked great! I don't like whole anchovies so used about a tsp of anchovy paste in the dressing. The salad was delicious and I will be making this again!

This salad is a great hit with friends and family. I use rinsed, salted anchovies and leftover home baked bread for the croutons. You can also brine the chicken breast instead of the spice rub. Super yummy, worthy

Really tasty and easy to make. I made the dressing in a jar by shaking it.
