Warm Chicken Caesar Bowl

This is so good and healthy!! There will be plenty of dressing left so get some romaine too.

Chicken:

  • 1/4 c lime
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 lb skinless chicken thighs
  • Salt and pepper

Combine and marinate the chicken for 2 hours. Preheat the oven to 400 and roast the chicken for 20 minutes. Let rest for 5 minutes then slice thin.

For the bowls:

  • 1 bag of baby kale or spinach or mixture of both
  • 1 c quinoa cooked
  • Salt and pepper
  • caesar dressing (follows)
  • Croutons

Toss the salad greens with some caesar dressing until nicely coated. Divide quinoa among plates, salad, chicken and croutons.

Caesar dressing:

  • 1/4 c grape seed oil
  • 1/4 c olive oil
  • 2 tbsp lime juice
  • 1 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • Tabasco to taste
  • 2 tbsp anchovies, minced or paste
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 tsp Dijon
  • 2/3 c Parmesan cheese, grated
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • Salt and pepper

Combine oils in a glass measuring cup with spout.

In a food processor combine anchovies, egg yolk and mustard. With the motor on and olive oil drop by drop until an emulsion forms, continue to add oil in a slow stream. Add remaining ingredients until combined.

Serves 4.
