Mexican Chicken Caesar Salad
by Monica Resinger, http://homemakersjournal.com

For a delicious twist on the traditional chicken caesar salad, try this. It serves approximately 4.

2 Small-Medium Heads of Romaine Lettuce, shredded
1 Tomato, sliced, then halved
2-3 Chicken Breasts
Seasoning Salt
2 Avocados, sliced
Shredded Parmesan Cheese
6 small Corn Tortillas, thinly sliced
Non-Stick Cooking Spray
Garlic Salt
Bottled Caesar Dressing
Milk - optional
Vinegar - optional
Salt - optional

Pre-heat oven to 350°F. Put the sliced corn tortillas onto a cooking sheet sprayed with the non-stick cooking spray, then spray the strips with the spray and sprinkle with garlic salt. Bake in the pre-heated oven for 20 minutes or until crisp.

Add the chicken breasts to a frying pan, then add a cup or so of water; bring the water to a boil, turn the heat to low and put on a lid and cook the breasts until done. When breasts are done, slice and season with seasoning salt.

Set all the salad ingredients in bowls, salad bar-style. If desired, mix the dressing with a little milk, vinegar and salt to taste to thin it down . . . this helps the dressing spread better over the salad, cuts calories and money.
