Keep the heat out of the kitchen with this perfect summertime entrée from Bell & Evans, highlighting their juicy and flavorful chicken. Add a few simple, fresh ingredients and grill to create this irresistible salad.



Juice of 2 limes
1 tsp Dijon mustard
1-2 cloves of garlic
1 tsp capers
3 anchovies
2 tbsp Parmesan, grated
½ cup olive oil
Salt & pepper, to taste


Bell & Evans boneless skinless chicken breasts
2 tbsp olive oil
Juice of 1 lime
Salt & pepper, to taste


3 heads of romaine hearts, cut in half
1 red onion, peeled & sliced
2 tbsp olive oil
Croutons, for serving
Parmesan shavings, for serving



In a blender combine lime juice, mustard, garlic, capers, anchovies, and Parmesan cheese. Blend until smooth. While blender is running, slowly stream in olive oil until well emulsified. Season with salt and pepper.


Pre-heat grill to medium-high heat. Marinate chicken with olive oil, lime juice, salt and pepper. Grill both sides until golden brown and thoroughly cooked to an internal temperature of 170°F as measured by a meat thermometer. Remove from heat and cover with foil to keep warm.


Gently brush oil evenly over cut sides of romaine hearts with olive oil. Season with salt & pepper. Repeat the same with the red onions. Over medium-high heat grill romaine (cut side down) for 1-2 minutes until grill marks appear, watching closely to prevent burning. Romaine should become slightly wilted. Repeat the same with the red onions.


Place romaine hearts on plate grilled side up. Drizzle with dressing. Serve with grilled sliced chicken and onions. Garnish with parmesan shavings and croutons.
