RECIPE
Makes large salads for 2 very hungry people + extra dressing + breadcrumbs

▪8 raw chicken tenders
▪4 heads of little gem lettuce (2 heads per person)
▪20g or 1 1/2Tbsp olive oil (for cooking tenders)
▪50g or 1/4c olive oil
▪150g or 1 1/2c panko breadcrumbs (makes more than you need for salad)
▪20g or 4tsp chopped capers
▪Grated parmesan

Chop, wash, and dry/spin lettuce well. Preheat medium sauté pan over medium heat. Add squeeze of olive oil, and place tenders in pan. It’s ok if they’re cozy in the pan. We’re searing and steaming. Cover and allow to cook for about 5min. Flip tenders, cover again, and reduce heat to low to cook for another 2-3min. Tenders are done when internal temp reaches 145F/62C. Remove from pan and allow to res briefly.

Wipe oil out of pan, increase heat to med-high, and add 50g or 1/4c oil. Once shimmering, add breadcrumbs. Toss to combine. Add pinch of salt. Continue stirring and tossing while cooking to a nice golden brown for about 60 seconds. Remove from pan and allow to dry and cool on a towel.

CAESAR DRESSING:
▪1 large egg
▪45g or 1/2c grated parm
▪30g or 1 can of oil packed anchovies, rinsed well (SUBSTITUTE 25g Worcestershire if you don’t like chovies + add 15g more parm)
▪1 clove garlic
▪50g or 3 1/2Tbsp lemon juice
▪10g or 2tsp water
▪275g or 1 1/4c neutral oil (canola, light olive oil, avocado, etc)

Add all ingredients except oil to tall sided container and blend with immersion blender until solids are broken down then slowly stream in oil while blending.

TO ASSEMBLE SALAD (for 2 large salads):
Add lettuce, chopped capers, 4 very large pinches of grated parm, 4 very large pinches of breadcrumbs, chicken tenders (chopped), and top with 4-6+ spoons of caesar to your taste. Top with additional breadcrumbs, sprinkle of parm, and additional dressing.

  1. As a Brit, I just wanna let you know how to properly pronounce Worcestershire Sauce, cos it's actually really easy despite the seemingly excessive vowels. It's wuss-tuh-shuh (edit: though actually, we mostly completely drop that last "shuh", so you can totally get away with just saying "wuss-tuh sauce").

    "Wuss" is said the way Americans abbreviate the schoolyard diss "wussie", which is a milder synonym for the, ahem…kitty version. "Tuh", like the first syllable of Tupperware. "Shuh", like in "shut", but without the T.

    Easy peasy 🙂

    You make great looking meals btw, mate! I think I'll make this tomorrow, but I'll probably use thighs cos they're so resistant to drying out, and cheaper 😛 Rock on…

  2. I cringed watching you lick that immersion blender. I know your tongue wasn't near the blade, but still. Totally going to start making my dressing this way. Need to use my immersion blender more and also, I have been using three egg yolks and I think one egg and rinsing those anchovies may be the way to go ever so slightly healthier with the dressing.
