  • 1/2 cup grape tomatoes halved
  • 1/3 cup grated parmesan cheese or more is preferred
  • Probiotic Caesar Salad Dressing see recipe above

Chicken:

  • 4 chicken thighs I use thighs with skin and bones for added flavor. Remember to save the bones for homemade broth.
  • 1 TB butter
  • 1 tsp salt to taste
  • 1 tsp black pepper to taste

Instructions

Probiotic Caesar Dressing:

  1. In a food processor (I use this one), add the anchovies, parmesan cheese, lemon juice, garlic cloves, whole milk yogurt, dijon mustard, and red wine vinegar. Pulse for 1 minute.
  2. With the food processor on, slowly add the olive oil through the feed tube. Pulse for an additional 30 seconds after adding all the olive oil. Pour the dressing into a desired container and store in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.

Salad:

  1. In a large bowl, toss the romaine lettuce, parmesan cheese, and tomatoes. Add the desired amount of dressing (the recipe provided will make enough for multiple salads). Add the shredded chicken (recipe below). Serve with additional shaved or shredded parmesan cheese.

Chicken:

  1. Preheat the oven to 425F. In a large skillet (I use this cast iron skillet), melt the butter on the stove-top over medium-high heat. As the butter melts, sprinkle the chicken thighs with salt and pepper. Add the chicken thighs to the butter and brown on each side for 4-5 minutes. Place the skillet (with chicken) in the oven and bake for 25 minutes, until no longer pink. Once cool, shred the chicken with two forks and serve with the salad.
