Chicken Caesar Salad

Chicken Caesar Salad


  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 large skinless and boneless chicken breasts
  • Low calorie cooking spray
  • 8 lean bacon rashers, all visible fat removed, cut into thick strips
  • 30g Parmesan cheese, grated
  • 2 Little Gem lettuces, leaves separated, or 1 large cos lettuce, leaves torn into large pieces
  • 200g cherry tomatoes, halved

For the dressing:

  • 200g fat free natural fromage frais
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 1 level tsp mustard powder
  • juice of 1 lemon


  1. Preheat the grill to medium-high.
  2. Season the chicken, lightly spray with low calorie cooking spray and grill for 6-7 minutes on each side or until cooked through. Remove from the grill and shred or slice thickly.
  3. Meanwhile, spray a heavy frying pan with low calorie cooking spray, add the bacon strips and fry gently over a medium heat. When crisp, remove from the pan with a slotted spoon and drain on kitchen paper.
  4. Whisk all the dressing ingredients in a bowl until smooth. Stir in half the Parmesan and season well.
  5. Place the lettuce leaves and tomatoes in a bowl and toss with half of the dressing to coat thoroughly. Scatter over the chicken and bacon and finish with the remaining dressing and Parmesan, plus a good grinding of black pepper.
  6. Cool, cover and chill until you’re ready to eat.
