Crisp Chicken Casear Salad

This is a quick and easy dinner that you can make in a pinch! You can cook the chicken how ever you like- brown it on the stove top with S & P, grill it with salt, pepper, and garlic powder- or give it a little kick with this quick marinate that's got great flavor! 

Ingredients for the Quick Chicken Marinate:
1/4 cup olive oil
2 cloves garlic (I use the frozen cubes from TJ's)
2 TBSP grill seasoning (I use Lawry's Seasoning Salt)
2 tsp. hot sauce
3 TBSP Worcestershire Sauce
2 TBSP red wine vinegar
** Marinate chicken breasts or strips in this and grill it, or bake it- I like it grilled best!

Ingredients for Salad:
Hearts of Romaine (pack of 3 from TJ's will feed 4 people)
Shredded Parmesan Cheese
Croutons or Parmesan Crisps (from TJ's)
Caesar Dressing (refrigerated section in TJ's)
**optional: baby grape tomatoes
Chicken- either 2 breasts or a package of chicken tenders

Take care of your chicken first, brown it or grill it depending on what you choose or what time allows. Obviously wash your lettuce, sprinkle on the parmesan cheese, chop the chicken into bite size pieces, toss on the tomatoes, then pour on the dressing and toss all ingredients. Serve in individual bowls with 2-3 parmesan crisps tucked on the side.
