Ingredients

  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts (1 lb/450 g)
  • 4 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons Montreal steak spice
  • 2 romaine lettuce hearts
  • 1/3 cup shaved Parmesan cheese
Vinaigrette:
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 4 anchovy fillets minced
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon grated lemon zest
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 pinch pepper

Method

In bowl, toss chicken with half of the oil and the steak spice; let stand for 10 minutes.

In large skillet, heat remaining oil over medium-high heat; cook chicken, turning once, until golden brown and no longer pink inside, 8 to 10 minutes. Let stand for 5 minutes; thinly slice crosswise.

Meanwhile, trim end of each lettuce, leaving core attached. Quarter each head lengthwise through core.

Vinaigrette: In bowl, whisk together lemon juice, oil, vinegar, anchovies, lemon zest, garlic, salt and pepper. Arrange 2 lettuce quarters on each plate; top with chicken. Drizzle with vinaigrette; sprinkle with Parmesan.
