Ingredients

  • 2/3 lbs boneless skinless chicken breasts (about 2)
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 demi-baguette thinly sliced diagonally
  • 1 clove garlic halved
  • 2 romaine lettuce hearts halved
  • 1/2 cup shaved Parmesan cheese
Creamy Caesar Dressing:
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons red wine vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 2 anchovy fillets minced (or 1 tsp anchovy paste)
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons light mayonnaise

Method

Creamy Caesar Dressing: In small bowl, whisk together lemon juice, vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, mustard, anchovies, garlic and pepper; drizzle in oil, whisking constantly until combined.

Remove 2 tbsp dressing to separate bowl; add chicken and toss to coat. Let stand for 10 minutes.

Whisk mayonnaise into remaining dressing; set aside.

Meanwhile, in small saucepan, pour in enough water to come at least 1 inch (2.5 cm) above eggs. Cover and bring to boil over high heat; boil for 4 minutes. Drain and rinse under cold water; drain again. Peel eggs and cut in half. Divide among 4 plates.

Place chicken on greased grill over medium-high heat; close lid and grill, turning once, until juices run clear when chicken is pierced, 12 to 15 minutes. Let stand for 5 minutes. Slice and divide among plates.

Add bread to grill; grill, covered and turning once, until toasted, about 2 minutes. Rub cut sides of garlic all over bread; divide among plates.

Add romaine hearts, cut sides down, to grill over medium-high heat; grill, covered, until grill-marked and just wilting, 1 to 2 minutes. Divide among plates. Top with dressing and Parmesan cheese.
