The Boyfriend Caesar

Serves 2 hungry boyfriends in 15
Use any kind of blender for this; hand or standing
  • 8-10 chicken tenders
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 large egg yolks
  • juice of 2 medium lemons, about 1/3 cup
  • 1.5 teaspoons anchovy paste
  • 1 garlic clove, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon dijon mustard
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 2 hearts of romaine, quartered lengthwise 
  • 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese

1.  Heat grill pan over medium-high.  Lightly brush grill with oil.  Season chicken with salt and pepper.  Once the pan is hot (about 2-3 minutes) add chicken (work in batches if you're grill is small).  Cook 4-5 minutes per side.  Transfer to a plate and set a side.

2.  Make dressing:  In blender combine yolks, lemon juice, anchovy paste, garlic, mustard, and cracked pepper.  With the blender running, slowly drizzle in olive oil.  Season with salt.

3.  Heat broiler oven.  Place hearts of romaine in a 9 by 12in baking dish.  Pour dressing over romaine and evenly sprinkle over parmesan. Cook in broiler for about 3 minutes until cheese turns golden brown.

4.  Serve your boyfriend.  This dish is so beautiful, it's really easy to plate.  Place the romaine down the center of the plate.  Add chicken around the perimeter.  Some of the dressing will pour off romaine during cooking so be sure to spoon over dressing at the bottom of the baking dish.
