Ingredients

¼ cup (50 mL) extra-virgin olive oil
1 clove garlic, minced
½ tsp (2 mL) kosher salt
1 tbsp (15 mL) chopped fresh rosemary
12 slices baguette, ½-inch (1-cm) thick
3 romaine hearts, cut in half lengthwise through the core, trimmed of large leaves
1½ lbs (750 g) chicken breasts, boneless and skinless

Dressing:
2 tbsp (25 mL) mayonnaise
1 tbsp (15 mL) lemon juice
¼ tsp (1 mL) hot sauce
1 tbsp (15 mL) Worcestershire sauce
3 tbsp (45 mL) extra-virgin olive oil
2 cups (500 mL) cherry tomatoes
2 oz (60 g) Parmesan cheese (preferably Parmigiano-Reggiano), shaved

 

Directions

  1. Combine olive oil, garlic, salt and rosemary. Brush on one side of each piece of bread. Brush on cut side of lettuce. Brush remaining on chicken breasts.
  2. Cook bread on grill until lightly browned on each side. Grill cut side of lettuce until lightly browned (about one minute). Grill chicken breasts for 4 to 6 minutes per side, until browned and cooked through.
  3. For dressing, combine mayonnaise with lemon juice, hot sauce, Worcestershire sauce and olive oil in a food processor or blender.
  4. Cut bread in half for croutons. Serve lettuce in large pieces or chop coarsely. Slice chicken on the diagonal.
  5. To serve, toss dressing with croutons, chopped lettuce, chicken and tomatoes, then top with shaved cheese; or serve on individual plates, with salad arranged in sections, drizzled with dressing and garnished with cheese.
