Ingredients
  

  • 800 g chicken breast
  • ½ lemon sliced

For the salad

  • 1 ⅓ head romaine lettuce thickly sliced
  • 250 g walnuts roughly chopped
  • 1 red onions finely sliced
  • salt and pepper to season

For the dressing

  • 120 ml mayonnaise
  • 4 tbsp parmesan cheese
  • 60 ml extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 anchovy fillets finely chopped
  • 2 tsp Dijon mustard
  • ½ lemon juiced and zested
  • ¼ tsp sea salt
  • tsp freshly ground black pepper

Instructions
 

  • Add the chicken breast to a large pan along with the sliced lemon and cover with cold water.
  • Bring the pan of water to a boil then reduce to a simmer. Poach for 10-14 minutes until the chicken breasts are entirely cooked through. Set aside to cool.
  • Whilst the chicken cooks you can prepare the Caesar dressing. Add the mayonnaise to a small mixing bowl along with the mustard, olive oil, lemon zest, garlic, anchovies and parmesan. Season and whisk together until you have a smooth and creamy dressing.
  • Whilst the chicken is cooling you can prepare the walnuts. Add the nuts to a dry pan over a low/medium heat and toast for 3-4 minutes until lightly golden and fragrant.
  • To assemble the salad, add the lettuce, onion, torn chicken and walnuts to a large mixing bowl. Season with salt and pepper and toss well to combine.
  • Divide the salad between individual serving bowls or sealable mason jars. Drizzle with the Caesar dressing just before serving.
