Chicken Caesar Salad

One of my absolute favourites is a Healthy Chicken Caesar Salad!  I just love the combination of flavours!  Problem is that the original American Style Caesar is packed with calories, so I have come up with a healthy, yet still very tasty version of Caesar Salad for you to enjoy, guilt free!

Chicken Caesar Salad

The secret to making this salad healthier is cutting out the croutons (carbs) and replacing half the mayonnaise with Kefir, which makes this salad a gut healthy dish!

Servings 4 people

Ingredients

Salad

  • 2 heads Romaine Lettuce Hearts removed
  • 800 grams Chicken Breast Organic, pastured
  • 1 tbsp Sumac optional
  • Sea Salt
  • Black Pepper ground
  • 1 tbsp Olive Oil organic, extra virgin

Dressing

  • 2 cloves Garlic grated
  • 1 tsp Fish Sauce
  • 2 tbsp Lemon Juice
  • 1 tsp Dijon Mustard
  • 1 tsp Worcestershire Sauce
  • 2 tbsp Mayonnaise
  • 3/4 cup Kefir preferably home made
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan Cheese grated
  • Sea Salt
  • Black Pepper Ground

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius

  2. Cut chicken breasts into strips and place in a single layer in a baking dish.  Season with Sumac, Salt, Pepper and Olive Oil.

  3. Place in the oven and cook for approximately 20-30 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through and just starting to brown slightly.

  4. Share romaine lettuce leaves between 4 bowls/plates.  You can leave the romaine lettuce leaves whole, or you can tear it up into smaller pieces.  I like to tear a bunch into 3 pieces.

  5. Place cooked chicken on top of the layer of lettuce.

  6. Assemble the Dressing by mixing all ingredients together in a bowl.  Drizzle over the salad with a spoon and serve!
