Ingredients

Salad Ingredients

  • 1 lb brussel sprouts, shredded
  • 1/2 lb chicken breasts (2 large breasts)
  • 1/4 cup caesar dressing**
  • 1/8 cup parmesan cheese, shaved
  • salt & pepper, for taste

Chicken Seasoning Ingredients

  • 1/2 tsp oregano
  • 1/2 tsp thyme
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp onion salt
  • 1/8 tsp pepper

Instructions

  1. Regardless of if using whole or shredded brussels make sure to rinse them in cold water. Allow to dry on a paper towel while you prepare your chicken.

  2. In a small bowl, combine oregano, thyme, garlic powder, onion salt and pepper. Mix together to create seasoning.

  3. Onto chicken breasts, sprinkle seasoning on both sides until chicken is heavily seasoned.

  4. Into a frying pan over medium heat, cook breasts. Allow for both sides to be cooked evenly (about 5 minutes on each side). When finished, place on plate or cutting board to rest while you finish the rest of the meal.

  5. Prep your brussel sprouts. If you are using whole brussels: chop off the ends of the sprouts, cut in half then thinly slice to create shredded sprouts. When complete, add them to your bowl. 

    If using pre-shredded sprouts: add immediately to bowl.

  6. Using a potato/vegetable peeler, shave your parmesan wedge. Add shavings to your salad bowl. (If using pre-shredded parmesan just add to bowl).

  7. Slice your chicken breasts in medium-thick pieces. Add chicken to salad.

  8. Finally add your caesar dressing to the bowl. Toss until everything is evenly coated. (use a little more than suggested if like salad heavily coated).

  9. Season with a little salt and pepper. Serve & enjoy!
