This chicken Caesar salad recipe is one of our top-rated! Using a precooked rotisserie chicken makes this salad extra easy and fast, although any leftover cooked chicken will work.

How to Make It

Step 1

To prepare salad, remove chicken from bones; shred with 2 forks to measure 3 cups meat. Combine chicken, lettuce, and bell pepper in a large bowl.

Step 2

To prepare vinaigrette, combine oil and next 7 ingredients (oil through garlic) in a bowl, stirring well with a whisk. Pour over salad; toss well. Sprinkle with croutons and cheese; toss gently to combine.

I only made the vinaigrette of this recipe for a salad I had made. It was perfect! Perfect amount of lemon, perfect amount of oil, perfect everything! I make this for salads now, but I am planning to make it with the chicken, lettuce and bell peppers soon. The vinaigrette is totally worth it!

Wasn't terribly yummy. It was just OK.

This recipe was fabulous! I like that it did not contain raw egg but kept the flavor and smell of a real caesar salad. I put all of the dressing ingredients in a blender to get a smooth consistency and grilled chicken rather than using store-bought rotisserie. Will be making again!

I've always complained that I found it difficult to make a good salad at home. I felt like if I wanted a salad, I'd have to go out to eat. Not anymore. This was delicious, and filling.

Perfect, quick and tasty. I now keep this dressing as a staple in my fridge. Tastes wonderful in the salad but I too like to make wraps with it.

This vinaigrette is light and very good. Easy and quick to prepare and a wonderful alternative to the creamier Caesar dressings.
