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! Read More

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! Read More

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. Read More

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! Read More

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! Read More

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. Read More

One of the better main dish salads I've had anywhere including a similar favorite at The Capital Grille. Outstanding actually tho' I must stress that this salad will only be as good as your salad dressing and your Cajun seasoning. Obviously if you're not crazy about either of those your salad will be mediocre at best. Rather than seasoning the chicken once it was in the skillet I just tossed it in a ziploc bag with some olive oil and Cajun seasoning neither of which I bothered to measure. Got my skillet good and hot threw in the chicken and let it get nice and golden brown before turning it over. I used the freshest Romaine real bacon "Creamy Vinaigrette" from this site (excellent by the way) and premium Parmigiano-Reggiano. Exceptional combination of seasonings flavors and textures. Hubs was as pleased with this as I was and insisted we make it again with steak or shrimp. Great recipe! Read More
