Chicken Caesar Salad
Why This Recipe Works
In developing our chicken Caesar salad recipe, we wanted to keep the ingredients simple: whole lettuce leaves cloaked with a rich dressing made from such unlikely partners as egg, Worcestershire sauce, lemon juice, garlic, and Parmesan cheese, with grilled chicken added to create a light main course. For the dressing, we coddled the eggs, then added precise amounts of olive oil, lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, garlic, and anchovy to create a balanced flavor. We tossed the greens with the dressing and lots of grated Parmesan cheese and topped the salad with homemade garlic croutons and moist, well-seasoned, quick-broiled chicken.
