Kerry’s Kale Chicken Caesar Salad

DSCN3167_2

I love a good Chicken Caesar Salad and trust me when I say this recipe is a good one. I have been trying to incorporate more Kale into my diet because it is one of the healthiest vegetables you can eat!! This recipe is so easy and perfect for a quick dinner when you are short on time.

Here are some reasons you should eat more Kale:

  • Filled with vitamins A and C, calcium, iron, potassium and chlorophyll
  • Protects against cancer
  • Helps the body achieve a healthy alkaline balance
  • Helps to oxidize cholesterol
  • Improves circulation and reduce inflammation.
  • Keeps your digestive system moving with it’s high fiber
  • Protects eyes from vascular degeneration and sun damage
  • Helps improve skin tone
  • Helps the body burn fat

Kerry’s Kale Chicken Caesar Salad For Two

Ingredients

  • 1 bunch of kale
  • 2 boneless chicken breasts
  • Lemon Pepper
  • Parmesan
  • 2 slices of Organic Uncured Canadian Style Bacon with no cancer causing nitrates – I like the one from Applegate
  • Handful of all Natural Whole Grain Melba Snacks
  • 2 Tbsp of Caesar dressing- I like the one from Bolthouse Farms because it is made of yogurt, low-fat and only 45 cal per serving

Directions

  1. Gather IngredientsDSCN3158_2
  2. Preheat oven to 350F
  3. Tear pieces of kale from the stem of 4-5 leaves of kale and place in 2 bowlsDSCN3153_2
  4. Season raw chicken breasts with lemon pepper seasoning and bake for 20 minutes or until chicken is cooked through
  5. Meanwhile, in a saucepan spray a little olive oil cooking spray to coat the pain. Simmer two pieces of canadian bacon- turning over on each side. I like mine a little crispy so I cook it until it begins to brown
  6.  While letting the canadian bacon cool, shred fresh parmesan on your salad. Grab a handful of the Malba Snacks and crunch over each salad. I like these because they are better for you than croutons and you still get the crunch!
  7. Once chicken is done and the canadian bacon cooled, cut and add to salad
  8. Add dressing

Feel free to store and bring this to work for a delicious lunch, your co-workers will be jealous! Just make sure you don’t add the “croutons” until you are ready to eat, otherwise they will get soggy. I will make this for a quick dinner when I am short on time and depending on the season I may pair it with a warm soup like this one.
