Loop Sunday Lunch: Roasted Chicken Caesar Salad

For today's Sunday Lunch, we keep it healthy with a Roasted Chicken Caesar Salad Recipe from MyRecipes. 

Reinvent the Caesar by roasting the lettuce to caramelise it, and jazz up store-bought dressing to make it taste like homemade.

Total time: 35 mins 

Serves 4 


1/4 small red onion, thinly sliced

1 cup bottled refrigerated Caesar dressing

1/3 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese

3 tablespoons chopped fresh chives

2 garlic cloves, pressed

1/2 teaspoon loosely packed lemon zest

1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

8 chicken breast tenders

2 romaine lettuce hearts, halved lengthwise

1 tablespoon olive oil

Toppings: Parmesan cheese, black pepper, flat-leaf parsley leaves, croutons


1. Preheat broiler with oven rack 6 inches from heat. Place onion in water to cover; chill until ready to use.

2. Whisk together Caesar dressing and next 5 ingredients.

3. Brush both sides of chicken with 1/3 cup dressing mixture. Place chicken on a lightly greased rack in an aluminum foil-lined jelly-roll pan. Broil 6 to 8 minutes or until browned. Transfer chicken to a serving platter.

4. Place lettuce, cut sides up, on rack in jelly-roll pan; brush with olive oil. Broil 3 to 5 minutes or until browned and wilted.

5. Drizzle desired amount of remaining dressing mixture over chicken and lettuce. Drain onions; pat dry. Serve salad with onions, any remaining dressing, and desired toppings.
