Ingredients for Chicken Caesar Salad

  • 2 chicken breasts
  • 1 can (400g / 15oz) chickpeas, rinsed and drained
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil divided
  • sea salt & pepper to taste
  • 1 small head Iceberg lettuce chopped
  • 1 cup halved cherry tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese shaved or grated
  • 1 ripe avocado sliced

Caesar Salad Dressing Ingredients:

  • 1/3 cup low-fat Greek yogurt
  • 1 garlic clove minced
  • 1 Tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 3-4 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • salt & fresh black pepper to taste


  • Place all dressing ingredients in a small bowl and mix well to combine. Refrigerate until ready to use.
  • Heat oil in a cast iron pan over med-high heat. Add chickpeas then season with salt and pepper.  Cook stirring frequently, until golden and crispy, for about 15–20 minutes. Remove from the pan and set aside.
  • In the same preheated pan, pour in the remaining oil. Add chicken breast and season generously with salt and pepper on both sides. Cook for about 7-8 minutes per side or until juices run clear (the internal temperature should be 75C/165F). Once the chicken is cooked, let it rest a bit, then slice it.
  • Combine all salad ingredients in a large bowl. Toss with the skinny dressing, and enjoy!
