Food: Dinner Tonight – Chicken Caesar Salad Altered

There is at least one day a week, I serve a chicken dish to the family – my mother included. However, when I mention that dinner would be chicken related, she cringes – not sure why. I do ask her, and she says, chicken is good. You do what you think is best.

So, this pesto chicken Caesar salad recipe it is with a few alterations to fit our dietary needs:


  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, plus more for drizzling
  • 2 cups torn ciabatta bread (no bread for us)
  • 2 cloves garlic, smashed
  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite size chunks
  • 1/2 cup basil pesto, homemade or store-bought
  • red pepper flakes, kosher salt, and black pepper
  • 6 cups shredded romaine lettuce
  • 2 cups cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 8 ounces burrata cheese, at room temperature (this may be mozzarella instead)
  • fresh herbs, for serving, such as chives, thyme, and basil


Question of the day: How do you handle picky eaters?
