Instructions

  1. Take the entire head of romaine, and cut it into quarters lengthwise.
  2. Add all the ingredients for the dressing to a blender, or a mixing bowl if using an immersion blender. Mix until smooth. Taste and adjust flavors to your liking. Set aside.
  3. Heat up the grill or use a grill pan on the stovetop.
  4. Brush the chicken thighs and romaine lettuce with olive oil. Season with salt and pepper.
  5. Grill the chicken until it's no longer pink inside. If you have room for the lettuce on the grill or grill pan, add it halfway through. Otherwise, remove the chicken when done and keep warm while you grill the romaine lettuce until charred and slightly soft.
  6. Serve the grilled chicken and romaine salad with the dressing. Top with the remaining Parmesan cheese and freshly ground black pepper.

Tips!

If you are missing crunchy croutons, try pork rinds instead.
