  • 3 tablespoons orange juice

  • 2 (5 ounce) skinless, boneless chicken breasts, cut into strips

  • 1 tablespoon canola oil

  1. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium heat and lightly oil the grate.

  3. Coat chicken strips with canola oil, followed by chives, parsley, and tarragon. Season with salt and pepper.

  4. Cook chicken strips on the preheated grill with the lid closed until no longer pink in the centers and juices run clear, 7 to 10 minutes, depending on thickness of strips.

  5. While chicken cooks, add romaine, croutons, bacon, and Gouda cheese to the bowl with dressing and toss well. Top with hot chicken and serve immediately.

Cook's Note:

You can use homemade or store-bought Caesar dressing. You can substitute Parmesan cheese for Gouda.
