Isn’t chicken Caesar salad just delicious? A homemade one is to die for with its tender, well-seasoned meat, fresh baby greens, and crunchy croutons. Chicken Caesar salad is one of my favorite salads year-round, especially on days when I have homemade dressing to spice it up!
WHY YOU’LL LOVE THIS RECIPE
- Easy to make
- 10 ingredients
- Tastes better than store-bought
- Heavenly flavor
Honestly, this is not a traditional Caesar salad mainly because I added tomatoes. You can leave them out if you prefer, but nice sweet cherry tomatoes really round out the flavor.
I used homemade Fresh Italian Seasoning and Caesar Dressing to make this recipe. The fresh Italian seasoning give the chicken breasts a deep, robust, and herbaceous flavor. Using dried Italian seasoning is just as delicious. In my opinion, one isn’t better than the other; the flavors are just slightly different. As for the dressing, homemade does taste worlds better than store bought, but use your favorite Caesar dressing if you’re short on time, patience, or both.
