Ingredients

  • 2 large cooked chicken breasts (~23 cups of chicken) cubed
  • 2 cups romaine lettuce, shredded, dark green parts only
  • 1 cup croutons, optional to crush them
  • 1/4 cup parmesan cheese, shredded
  • 4 ounces pasta (half a box) I used penne
  • 1 batch of this homemade healthier caesar dressing or use 1 cup store bought caesar dressing

Instructions

  1. Boil the pasta and cook to package instructions, drain water and rinse to cool pasta down. 
  2. Make the salad dressing in an immersion blender or regular blender and pour into a large bowl. Add the pasta and toss to coat. 
  3. Next, add in the shredded lettuce, cooked chicken breasts and parmesan cheese. Mix to fully incorporate.
