After you make this you will not go back to the traditional way again…I promise.

I used a store-bought rotisserie chicken and a healthy Caesar dressing to make this in one pan and it was ready in less then 30 minutes.


  • 1 store bought rotisserie chicken, 1 breast removed and chopped (save the rest for another recipe)
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 4-5 pieces of bacon or pancetta, chopped
  • 1 small shallot, diced
  • 6 cups Brussels sprouts, thinly sliced*
  • 2 cups fresh baby spinach
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 2-3 tablespoons Caesar salad dressing


    1. Take your rotisserie and cut off one breast and chop up. Reserve the rest for another recipe.
    2. In a large sauté pan over medium heat add in oil then bacon or pancetta. Cook until almost crispy ,then remove using a slotted spoon onto a plate lined with a paper towel.
    3. In the same pan, with the oil and bacon fat over medium heat, add in shallots and let cook for about 1 minute.
    4. Add in Brussels sprouts and cook for about 5-7 minutes. Use a large spoon to coat the Brussels sprouts with the oil and bacon fat.
    5. Add in baby spinach, then season with salt and pepper while cooking for about 2 minutes.
    6. Add cooked bacon and chopped chicken into the pan and toss to combine. Remove from heat then pour in Caesar dressing and toss.

Note: To slice the brussels sprouts use a mandolin or slice very thin using a sharp chef's knife. You can add in more Caesar dressing but start with 2 tablespoons then add in more a little at a time. Enjoy!
