Chicken Caesar Salad with Chardonnay



Chicken Caesar Salad is my husband’s favorite meal. I enjoy it, but it doesn’t enjoy me.

I don’t have any background on the wine, as it was a gift. I don’t normally like chardonnay’s, however this one turned out to be a great match for the salad.


This recipe is for two hungry folks.

  • 4 – 5 thinly sliced chicken breast fillets
  • 2 Romaine lettuce heads
  • 5 pieces of bread to make croutons out of OR store-bought croutons
  • 1 cup of parmesan cheese
  • 1 cup+ Caesar salad dressing
  • Small amounts of butter, olive oil, garlic powder and flour to cook with.

I start making my croutons first by cutting up bread in bite-sized pieces. Melt about 2 tbsn of butter and add 1 tbsn of olive oil to this. Mix with bread and add garlic powder to taste. Toast these in the oven at about 350 degrees until they are crunchy.

Dredge chicken breasts thru flour and skillet fry to doneness. Allow to cool and cut into bite-sized pieces before mixing in salad to prevent the lettuce from wilting.

Mix all together! Complete!

  1. Sounds and looks delicious. I don’t eat anything feathered or furred and can not drink because etoh makes me feel sick. I drink only a tad but with the afib thing I don’t drink anything at all not even decaf coffee so that I can try to keep my heart reigned in.


    • For me to pass on all of this, it would take a health condition to do it! I’m sure at my slightly-above-middle age, some health problem will manifest itself soon. I’m going to ask for an EKG at my next physical in April. I’ve not had issues, per se, I actually think I pulled a chest muscle! But, since I pay $1,000,000 a month for health insurance, I might as well get it looked at!

        • I was exaggerating my insurance bill by a few hundred dollars. . ;);) It did triple from what I was paying b4 the ‘reform’.
          I do have a check up for another issue sooner. If this 💙 thing continues, I’ll mention it then. I really do think I pulled a muscle, it only hurts when I move certain ways and had gotten to be less over the past week.
          Insurance is still a stupid game. My tests are free if done during physical. If not I get charged.
          Hope your weekend is nice! Our famous weatherman, Mr. Skilling tells us we’re in for -25F on Saturday 😨 Holy cow!
