Chicken Brussels Sprouts Caesar Salad

After you make this Chicken Brussels Sprouts Caesar Salad 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 was ready in less then 30 minutes.

 

Ingredients

  • 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

Directions

  1. Take your rotisserie and cut off one breast and chop up.  Reserve the rest for another recipe.

    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.

    In the same pan with the oil and bacon fat over medium heat add in shallots and let cook for about 1 minute then add in brussels sprouts and cook for about 5-7 minutes.  Use a large spoon to coat the oil and bacon fat with a brussels sprouts.  Add in baby spinach then season with salt and pepper while cooking for about 2 minutes.

    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 chefs knife.  You can add in more caesar dressing but start with 2 tablespoons then add in more a little at a time.  Enjoy!
