dry penne pasta
skinless, boneless chicken breast halves - cut into 1 inch cubes
ground black pepper
1 (8 ounce) bottle
Caesar salad dressing
red wine vinegar
grated Parmesan cheese
romaine lettuce - rinsed, dried and shredded
this was a great recipe. i used spinach instead of the lettuce and added bell peppers (yellow and red) for more color and to add some extra vegtables. It turned out great!
Added 2x more chicken to this recipe. Go easy on the cheese...family liked
I thought this dish tasted a lot like a well-made chicken caesar salad. I did make a few modifications: used more heat resistant shredded spinach instead of lettuce and used only enough caesar dressing to coat (but not drown) the other ingredients. I was even able to eat it for lunch the next day!
This is a good side dish or one to take to a potluck. Tasty and would make again.
I almost didn't rate this recipe since I altered it quite a bit, but I thought it might show the versatility of this yummy simple dish. Rather than butter, I sauteed the chicken cubes in a dash of EVOO and minced garlic. I tossed the pasta and chicken w/tomato and fresh baby spinach, and used Good Season Greek dressing to mix w/the red wine vinegar and parmesan cheese. I also tossed the complete mixture w/a handful of shredded italian blend cheese. This was great! I'm looking forward to trying it Ceasar style soon. Thanks for a great weeknight staple!
I would say this recipe is definitley very good but not 5 star worthy. Not sure why but it is just good. I can't stomach hot lettuce though so both times I have made it I cook the pasta and chicken and then chill them before adding them to the lettuce.
It is pretty good though as I have made it multiple times!
Excellent. This has become my most requested recipe when I attend family gatherings. I use Renee's caesar salad dressing with half a cup of parmesan added to it. I add garlic to the chicken while it is cooking. As well, if you don't mix the dressing in, this salad can keep for a few days in the fridge. Thanks for the new twist on an old classic.
The first time I made this, my boyfriend ate the entire salad himself over a course of 1 1/2 days. The 2nd time I made it, he ate the entire thing within ONE day! I didn't even get a bite! This recipe makes a VERY generous amount also! He claims to some extent that the salad is better than having intercourse, which is pretty amazing! The salad tastes better when it's chilled giving time for the cooked chicken to chill also. For those people who don't know what to add to what, I just dump the lettuce, paste, chicken and dressing in all together and mix the entire thing. This has definately become "the salad to make" at my house. It's a hit with other family members also!
