It’s been a long time since I last blogged! Following the birth of my twins, I’ve been waiting for the right moment to return and last night I finally felt inclined to take some pictures of the food knowing I had a bit of free time this morning to write about it! I thought this recipe would link in well with my previous post of Chicken Caesar Salad and would give me the chance to test an alternative caesar dressing.
This one didn’t use mustard but lemon juice and worcester sauce instead (full ingredients at the bottom of the post) and overall I’m not really sure which one I prefer. Both have their merits. This one was more runny for sure so made the eating a bit messier. But taste wise, both are good!
I started by cooking the chicken breast on 180 C for 20 mins and then prepared the caesar sauce in the meantime. I mixed all the sauce ingredients together well and added half to some chopped lettuce leaves. Then I toasted the ciabatta for a couple of minutes, placed the cooked chicken on top, then the dressed lettuce, ham and added some more caesar sauce and Parmesan shavings.
In terms of overall recipe I would say I preferred the Caesar salad as it is easier to eat (a knife and fork help!) but this was a tasty alternative and a great, fast homemade snack albeit not the healthiest! Life with twins has definitely led to repeating more of the same meals over and over so this made a welcome change last night 🙂
