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
- 1 bunch of kale
- 2 boneless chicken breasts
- Lemon Pepper
- 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
- Gather Ingredients
- Preheat oven to 350F
- Tear pieces of kale from the stem of 4-5 leaves of kale and place in 2 bowls
- Season raw chicken breasts with lemon pepper seasoning and bake for 20 minutes or until chicken is cooked through
- 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
- 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!
- Once chicken is done and the canadian bacon cooled, cut and add to salad
- 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.
