CookingHalal's picture
Today, I am going to show how to make healthy chicken caesar salad. I find caesar salad dressings very rich, so, this is my version of making an extremely low-fat dressing for my healthy chicken caesar salad. Its fat free and still loaded with flavors. This caesar salad dressing will be equally delicious with griddled king prawns.
  Boneless chicken breasts 2 , take the skin off for extra skinniness (Free Range)
  Olive oil spray 1
  Freshly ground black pepper To Taste
  Soya and linseed bread slices 2
  Gem lettuces 3 Small (Little)
  Anchovy fillet in olive oil 2 (From A Jar)
  Ground white pepper To Taste
  Freshly grated parmesan 20 Gram (With A Microplane)
  Boneless chicken breasts 2 (Free-Range Take The Skin Off For Extra Skinniness)
  Lettuce 3 Small
  Anchovy fillets 6
  Garlic clove 1 Small, peeled and grated
  Anchovy fillets 2 (In Olive Oil)
  Salt To Taste
  Pepper To Taste
  0% fat greek yogurt 3 Tablespoon
  Lemon juice 1 Tablespoon

1. Heat a griddle until smoking. Spritz the chicken breasts with a little oil and season with salt and pepper.
2. Place onto the griddle and turn down the heat. Cook for five minutes, turn over and repeat for five more minutes, or until cooked through.
3. Remove from the heat and leave to rest for five minutes, then cut into 7mm slices widthways.
4. Preheat a conventional oven to 200ºC or a fan-assisted one to 180ºC.
5.To make the melba toasts, toast the soy and linseed bread until golden. Cut off the crusts and slice through the bread horizontally so that you are left with two sides of bread, each with one toasted side and one soft side.
6. Place on a baking tray, soft-side-up, and bake for five minutes or until the bread has curled up and dried.
7. Place the garlic, anchovy and some salt and pepper in a pestle and mortar and pound until broken into a smooth paste.
8. Tablespoon by tablespoon, add the yoghurt and lemon juice until combined. Stir in the parmesan and season again to taste.
9. Drop the lettuce leaves into a bowl and mix together with the dressing. Place on a plate and top with the chicken breast and fresh anchovies. Lay the melba toasts by the side.
