GRILLED CHICKEN CAESAR

2 heads Romaine

cooking spray

2 pkgs chicken tenders

red onion, sliced thin

Parmesan shavings

sea salt

pepper

garlic

DRESSING

1 cup mayonnaise

1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese

juice of 1/2 lemon

1 tbs Dijon mustard

1 tbs Worcestershire

2-3 cloves garlic

2 anchovy fillets or 1 tbs anchovy paste

1/3 cup milk

pepper, to taste

Sprinkle indoor or outdoor grill with cooking spray.  Season chicken tenders on both sides with a sprinkle of sea salt, pepper, and garlic powder.  Cook about 2-3 minutes on both sides.  Remove from grill, set aside.  DO NOT CLEAN YOUR GRILL YET (see notes). Cut Romaine heads in half length-wise.  Spray grill with cooking spray again and lay each head on grill, cooking about 1 minute on each side.  Remove from grill and chop coarsely.  Place in bowl and chop your chicken tenders into chunks about 1/2 inch, and then place onion on top of chicken.  Place on top of lettuce.  Place all dressing ingredients into your blender or food processor and shoosh it up until smooth.  Pour over salad and mix up, making certain to sneak at least one piece of chicken as you do.  Garnish with Parmesan shavings, and if you're like us, you'll serve it with some table white and make "this tastes so delicious" noises as you eat.

NOTES: Grill the lettuce right over where you grilled your chicken for full-on flavor.  I try to use organic ingredients whenever possible for clean eating, but in this recipe, there are so many flavors going on, you won't notice if you can't find organic ingredients.  FO' REALZ.
