Lazy Chicken Caesar Salad

On Monday nights I have guitar lessons and on Thursday nights I have class.  Getting home at 9:00 makes it hard to cook an awesome meal, eat it, clean up, and spend some time with awesome boyfriend before bed.  I have a few recipes that I keep in my pocket for nights when I'm in a hurry.

These chickens are one of my secret weapons.  For $7.99 and minimal
effort you get 4-6 meals.  You can't beat that!

2 C romaine lettuce
4 Tbsp Newman's Own Creamy Caesar
1/2 C shredded Parmesan cheese
1 grocery store rotisserie chicken


  1. Remove all meat from the rotisserie chicken.  These chickens are really greasy and make a huge mess.  I have a big cutting board I like to put down to do this.  You can keep the skin if you want but you don't have to.  You should be shredding the chicken a little bit while you pull it off.  Don't worry about getting it too small, but you want bite size chunks for a salad.  
  2. Separate the chicken into 4-6 piles.  This will depend on how much chicken you have.  
  3. We are only going to be using 2 of the chicken piles.  Put the rest away for tomorrow.  
  4. Chop the romaine lettuce.  Remember that you only get 2 Cups of low impact vegetables a day so make sure you measure.  
  5. Put the chopped romaine in a gallon zip lock bag.  
  6. Add the shredded Parmesan and the Caesar dressing to the gallon zip lock bag.  
  7. Close the bag and shake until lettuce is evenly coated with dressing.  
  8. Separate the contents of the bag onto two plates.  
  9. Top with your two piles of chicken.  
  10. Enjoy!  Super easy.  
This recipe makes 2 salads.  If you only want one just half the ingredients.

Feel free to add bacon bits, maybe some cherry tomatoes, cucumbers, cracked pepper, or whatever else you like.  Just make sure to count carbs if you add more vegetables.

Could it get any easier?

This is the best Caesar around, hands down.  And at just 1 carb for
2 Tbsp, you can afford to have a little extra.
