Grilled Chicken Caesar Salad Recipe

I love grilled chicken caesar salad because it’s a meal that comes together quickly. I can meal prep the ingredients for the week and enjoy a delicious caesar salad for lunch . Traditionally, a caesar salad has crisp romaine lettuce, creamy caesar dressing, a sprinkling of parmesan cheese and a squeeze of fresh lemon. Adding the grilled chicken adds a smoky flavor and extra protein and fat to the dish.

Grilled chicken caesar salad is naturally keto approved because it is low in carbs and caesar dressing is higher in fat content than other dressings. For two tablespoons, my recipe for Caesar Salad Dressing has 25 grams of fat.

The Caesar Dressing

The Caesar dressing is the most important component to a Caesar salad. My recipe for caesar dressing is keto approved and it has all the ingredients to make the perfect caesar dressing in perfect proportions. Anchovy, parmesan cheese, garlic, and lemon come together to form the creamiest, most flavorful salad dressing.

The Grilled Chicken

I used chicken thighs in this recipe as chicken thighs have a higher fat content compared to chicken breast. This lends the protein to be more flavorful; especially when grilled. Grilling the chicken offers a smoky taste to the salad. I prefer cooking my chicken that I top on salads this way.

Meal Prep Grilled Chicken Caesar Salad

I love packing grilled chicken caesar salad for lunch.

To meal prep a caesar salad, store all your ingredients separately. Then combine them when you want to make your caesar salad. You can cut up the romaine lettuce ahead of time and store it in a ziplock bag or container. Place a dry piece of paper towel in with the lettuce to help absorb any excess moisture.
The grilled chicken thighs can be stored sliced up in a container.
