1

Make the ciabatta croutons

Heat the oven to 400°F.
  • Tear the ciabatta into 1-inch pieces.
  • Finely chop, press, or grate enough garlic to measure 1 teaspoon [2 tsp].
  • Measure 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] Parmesan; set aside the rest for the salad.
In a medium bowl, combine the ciabatta, garlic, 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] Parmesan, and 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] oil; season with salt and pepper and toss to coat.
On a sheet pan, spread the ciabatta in an even layer and toast in the oven until crisp and browned, 8 to 10 minutes.
While the ciabatta croutons toast, prepare the chicken.

2

Prep and cook the chicken

  • Pat the chicken dry with a paper towel; season generously with salt and pepper.
In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 teaspoons oil until hot but not smoking. Working in batches if needed, add the chicken and cook, turning once, until slightly browned, 1 to 2 minutes per side. Reduce the heat to medium-low and continue cooking, turning occasionally, until firm and cooked through, 5 to 8 minutes. Transfer to a cutting board to cool slightly, then cut into ½-inch-thick slices. Add more oil between batches if needed.
While the chicken cooks and cools, prepare the romaine.

3

Prep the romaine; toss the salad

  • Trim the root ends from the romaine hearts; coarsely chop the leaves.
In a large bowl, combine the romaine, ciabatta croutons, remaining Parmesan, and as much Caesar dressing as you like and toss to coat (set aside any remaining dressing for serving). Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Serve

Transfer the Caesar salad to individual bowls and top with the chicken. Serve any remaining dressing on the side.
