Chicken Caesar Salad Ingredients


  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 heads of romaine lettuce, washed and chopped
  • 1 bunch of kale, trimmed, washed, and chopped
  • 3 slices of bread (preferably brioche)
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp butter.

Сaesar dressing:

  • 1/2 cup grated Parmigiano Reggiano cheese
  • 1/2 cup Kewpie mayo
  • 2 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tsp anchovy paste
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced.

Salt and pepper to taste.

Optional toppings: roasted cashews.


  1. Wash and pat dry the chicken breasts. Season the chicken breasts with salt, pepper, garlic powder, and olive oil.
  2. Chicken breasts should be prepared for the oven by lining a baking sheet with parchment paper and bringing the temperature up to 375°F, or 190°C. Cook for 15 to 20 minutes, or until the center is no longer pink.
  3. Bake the chicken for 15-20 minutes or until cooked through and no longer pink in the center.
  4. While the chicken is baking, prepare the croutons. Cut the bread into cubes and melt the butter in a skillet over medium heat.
  5. Add the minced garlic to the skillet and cook until fragrant. Then, add the bread cubes and toss to coat them in the garlic butter.
  6. Cook the croutons until golden brown and crispy, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and set aside.
  7. Boil the eggs in a pot of water for about 7 minutes. Once cooked, cool quickly in water.
  8. Once the chicken is cooked, remove it from the oven and let it rest for a few minutes before slicing it into strips.
  9. In a small bowl, whisk together the Kewpie mayo, lemon juice, Dijon mustard, Worcestershire sauce, anchovy paste, and grated Parmigiano Reggiano cheese to make the dressing.


Combine the chopped romaine lettuce, kale, chicken, and croutons in a large bowl. Drizzle with dressing to taste and toss. Arrange the salad on plates, and top with egg halves, Parmesan cheese slices, toasted cashews, and a lemon wedge for added flavor. Enjoy!
