Not much about this recipe is homemade, but making your own croutons takes a pretty pedestrian salad and makes it special. My kids love Caesar salads, so we eat this recipe on a regular basis.
Chicken Caesar with Homemade Croutons
white meat of rotisserie chicken, shredded
romaine lettuce, rinsed and dried
your favorite Caesar dressing
freshly grated Parmesan cheese
baguette (can be day old)
extra virgin olive oil
salt and pepper
To make the croutons, cut the baguette into bite sized pieces. Drizzle with olive oil and toss well. Sprinkle with kosher salt and freshly ground pepper. Bake at 400 for 7-9 minutes, or until brown and crispy. Toss with the lettuce, chicken, and cheese.
