This salad is so quick to put together, especially if you “cheat” and use ready chopped lettuce and ready cooked chicken! The dressing is super simple, too. The stage that takes longest is making the Parmesan crisps – but they are absolutely essential to the dish for crunch and delicious saltiness!
How to Make a Low Carb Chicken Caesar Salad
Make the Parmesan crisps first. On a silicone mat (I use this quarter size one), sprinkle little puddles of shredded Parmesan.
Place under a broiler and cook until melted, bubbly and starting to turn brown – watch them carefully! Leave them to cool and crisp up, draining excess fat on a paper towel if necessary. If you want some more variations, check out these five Parmesan Crisps suggestions. You can also make them neater circles by making them in a mini muffin pan – but if I'm just making this for me I don't bother!
To make the dressing, combine mayonnaise, anchovy paste and Worcestershire sauce together in a bowl.
Mix some cooked chopped chicken into the dressing. Leftover roast chicken or cold rotisserie chicken is perfect for this recipe – or you can also buy ready-cooked chicken.
Place some chopped or shredded Romaine lettuce onto a plate, then add the chicken and any excess dressing. Finish with the Parmesan crisps and a grind or two of some black pepper.
This recipe serves one but it would be exceedingly easy to increase the quantities! The finished salad is salty, cheesy, creamy and surprisingly filling!
