The best ever chicken Caesar

Method

  • Preheat oven to 180°C fan forced (200°C normal). 
  • Toss the bacon and croutons with some olive oil spray and cook in the oven for about 10 mins until golden, tossing once or twice. 
  • To make the dressing, process the egg yolk and anchovies with the mustard, 2½ tbsp lemon juice, a little ground pepper and the garlic until well combined. 
  • Then add about ½ cup oil through the feeder tube, little by little, continually mixing to reach mayonnaise consistency. Taste for seasoning. 
  • Toss the chicken with a little oil, seasonings and fresh lemon juice. Then cook on a preheated, ridged grill or BBQ (or in the oven).
  • Lightly dress the different lettuce leaves, separately, with a little oil.
  • Then toss the cos with a decent amount of the bacon and croutons.
  • To serve, arrange a mound of the cos mixture on individual plates and top with the chicken, frisee, a little of the dressing, some grated parmesan, a few white anchovies and another piece of chicken. Sprinkle with a little more dressing and garnish with the watercress and parsley, finishing with a little more dressing and plenty of grated parmesan.
