Chicken Caesar

We had a very good day yesterday kcal wise so decided that maybe a chicken Caesar would be a good healthy supper. It kind of is and it kind of isn't and this is why....Parmesan cheese, Caesar dressing, croutons!

So, could we make a healthy Caesar? It took some doing and we did end up with a great result but it was still quite hefty on the calories. Now I always have a different version of this anyway as I'm not too keen on lots of sticky sauce and I like my chicken with a blob of piri piri so mine went something like this.

Serves 1
1 100g chicken breast baked in foil ( 30 minutes at 180 )                              180 kcals
1 rasher lean back bacon grilled                                                                     72  kcals
Handful of romaine lettuce                                                                                0 kcals
1 Tablespoon low fat Caesar sauce ( I used Waitrose )                                    49 kcals
1  Tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese                                                           60 kcals
2 Tablespoons baked not fried croutons                                                          50 kcals
Blob piri piri                                                                                                    20 kcals 
2  Heaped tablespoons thinly sliced red onion                                                     0 kcals
                                                                                                                       431 Kcals

Ok so not really low but really tasty and this is the thing - I couldn't finish it as it was way too much food! Also it just didn't need the croutons or maybe even the bacon so next time it'll be 309 kcals. Unfortunately we ate this before I thought to photograph it - such is the problem on a diet so next time I'll pop a photo in.


Ok so not my pic but one liberated from the web!  Thanks to this site.
