Method

  1. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Season the chicken and place in a snug roasting tin. Drape the bacon around the chicken and roast for 15-20 mins until the bacon is crisp and the chicken just cooked through.
  2. In a bowl, mix the garlic, lemon juice, yogurt, oil and Parmesan, adding a dash of Worcestershire sauce, if you have any in the cupboard. Discard the outer leaves of the lettuce and tear the rest over a platter, mixing gently with the dressing. Serve with the chicken and crisp bacon, shaving over extra Parmesan, if you like.

We ate it... but the dressing just looked horrible which put us off a bit. Wouldn't make it again, and threw away the spare dressing.

Tried this this evening for myself, hubby and 2 year old son and it was an absolute hit! 3 clean plates!
I added home made croutons to it also and some boiled new potatoes and was a truly delicious dinner. It will definately be made again!

Very good!
Do not forget some toasted bread pieces though!

Great dish - simple and delicious - I find a salmon ceaser salad even more delightful - simply exchange the chicken and bacon for salmon! A work colleague and myself would treat ourselves to a salmon ceaser at lunch from waitrose - with this recipe I can make my own - even more rewarding!!!
