Chicken Caesar Salad Recipe


A staple in many chain restaurants across the nation, a good Chicken Caesar Salad recipe is a favorite of so many of us. What draws us in? Is it the grated Parmesan cheese? The creamy dressing? Perhaps it is the garlicky, crunchy croutons. Maybe it's the combination of flavors and textures. Topped with grilled chicken and it's more than a salad, it's a meal. The chicken can be substituted with shrimp or thin sliced steak .
