Grilled Chicken Caesar Salad with Spicy Chipotle Dressing

I buy the precooked grilled chicken strips and keep them on hand to make this salad. It is great for a late work night. I make mine minus the anchovies, since I am not an anchovy fan.

Grilled Chicken Caesar Salad with Spicy Chipotle Dressing

3/4 cup zesty Italian Dressing
1 chipotle pepper in adobo sauce
1/4 cup cilantro leaves
2 anchovies (optional)
8 cups torn romaine lettuce
1 lb. boneless skinless chicken breasts, grilled, cut into strips
1 cup seasoned croutons
1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese

Place dressing, pepper, cilantro and anchovies in blender container; cover. Blend on medium speed until smooth.

Toss lettuce, chicken, croutons and cheese in large bowl. Add dressing mixture; mix lightly. Serve with fresh lime wedges and fresh ground pepper, if desired.

This sounds great! I agree with you about the anchovies.

I use anchovy paste whenever a recipe calls for anchovies - it's much better!!

This recipe looks absolutely awesome - thanks for posting it!

I use the paste, too. I love anchovies and always order them on one half of the pizza I order.

I could probably live on this salad alone -- one of my top three favorites!!!

And I'll happily take anchovies in small doses...!

Thank you, Sierra!!!

Actually I've never tried anchovies, so I guess I should try them before assuming I wouldn't like them! I've fished with them too many times to want to eat them though! I do know anchovy paste is a big thing in Swedish cooking, so I will probably try it at some point.

I didn't mind putting the live ones on my hook. They were cool to the touch and "normal" feeling. The dead ones had a dry, scaly, flat, dead feel. I hated using them!

I really should not knock anchovies. I have had them in recipes before when they were added and I did not know it. I liked the food just fine. I just cannot bring myself to put them in recipes. Maybe I have anchoviephobia.
