Nourish: Doing up chicken Ceasar salad right


You'll regularly find chicken Caesar salads, but that doesn't mean you'll find them all done well. Common flaws include too much dressing and clunky pieces of chicken.

Here's how I have approached the dish: A roasted-garlic marinade flavors chicken cutlets that are then grilled and cut into bite-size pieces. Chopped garlic and fresh oregano mix with freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano (the good stuff) to make a multidimensional dressing. Diced hard-cooked egg is sprinkled over the salad. And shaved Parmigiano-Reggiano finishes it with a flourish.

Note that the chicken needs to marinate for at least 30 minutes and up to 2 hours.
