In only 30 minutes, you can make homemade ciabatta croutons, fresh chicken, and creamy Caesar dressing all from scratch!

Season the Ciabatta

Chop the ciabatta into ¾-inch cubes. Drizzle the ciabatta pieces with olive oil, sprinkle with the crouton seasonings, and toss until well combined.



Bake the Croutons

Spread the croutons in an even layer on the lined baking sheet. Bake the croutons for 10-15 minutes, turning once halfway through. 

Blend Dressing Ingredients

Add the homemade Caesar salad dressing ingredients to a large mason jar. Blend the dressing ingredients using an blender until smooth.



Prepare the Chicken

Cut the chicken breasts into four pieces. Flatten the chicken until the thickest part is even with the thinnest part. 

Season the Chicken

Drizzle the chicken breasts with avocado oil. Season both sides liberally with salt, garlic powder, and oregano. Heat a grill pan.



Grill the chicken

Add the remaining avocado oil to the hot pan. Add the chicken to the pan, and cook for 3-4 minutes. Flip it, and cook for another 3 minutes.

Assemble the Salad

Chop the lettuce into bite-sized pieces. Combine the lettuce with half of the dressing, grated parmesan cheese, and croutons in a large bowl.
