This was fantastic! I work at a restaurant and they serve premarinated chicken breast for their c-salad and I always wanted to duplicate it, lets just say, this recipe is up to par or better. I followed the recipe as is, except I also added onion salt and blk pepper. I've actually made chicken like this before, but for some reason, this tasted much better (maybe it's because I cooked it over my new cast iron skillet). Anyhow, I just used the chicken, didn't follow the salad part, I like my own (romaine, carrots, red onions, feta, croutons, pepperocinis, tomatoes and cumcumber). I made a lot of the chicken, diced them up and froze them, so whenever I feel like a salad, it's ready to go in no time. Thanks for this keeper!

Not a winner with me or my dinner guests.

What a great idea! I ended up using my own Caesar Salad dressing recipe (1 egg, pinch of dill, 1 tsp olive oil, 4 drops Worcestershire sauce, 2 T red wine vinegar, 2 T lemon juice whisked together and then add grated Parmesan cheese) but the Cajun Chicken made a great topping for it. Thanks!

Loved it! I marinated the chicken in the marinade from the chicken tacos recipe found on this site and sauted the chicken in that with mushrooms and cajun spices. The rest of the recipe i kept the same. Soooo Goood. Added to the rotation.

I did NOT need four chicken breasts. One really big one was plenty. I kept everything else the same, even the cajun seasoning. I did make my own cajun seasoning. This was SO good. I don't know why I haven't thought about making a chicken caesar salad before but I do know that it's my new favorite salad!

The title doesn't lie.

I didn't have all of the required ingredients on hand, so I substituted a few things. Even with the (minor) changes, this recipe was great. The chicken had an excellent flavor. I saved some of the bacon to top the salad with. My husband liked it so much, he had me make it again later in the same week.

I loved it! But I used only half that amount of parmesan and bacon, and added some hearty crutons. A big hit at my house!
