Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 3/4 teaspoons each salt
  • 3/4 teaspoons dried Italian herb seasoning
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 4 chicken breasts
  • 1/2 baguette
  • 6 cups torn romaine lettuce
  • 1 cup halved grape tomato
  • 1 cup halved cherry tomato
  • 1/4 cup shaved Parmesan cheese
Dressing:
  • 2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons anchovy paste
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil

Method

In bowl, combine oil, salt, herb seasoning and garlic; brush one-third over chicken. Sear in ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat, turning once, until golden. Place in 400°F (200°C) oven; roast until juices run clear when chicken is pierced, 15 to 20 minutes. Let stand for 5 minutes before diagonally cutting into slices.

Meanwhile, cut baguette into scant 1-inch (2.5 cm) cubes. Add to remaining oil mixture, tossing to coat. Spread on baking sheet and bake in 400°F (200°C) oven until golden and crisp, about 10 minutes.

Dressing: In separate large bowl, whisk together vinegar, anchovy paste, lemon juice, mustard and Worcestershire sauce; whisk in oil. Add lettuce, tomatoes, croutons and chicken; toss to combine. Sprinkle with cheese.
