Ingredients

½ cup vegetable oil
2 teaspoons lemon juice
1 teaspoon tarragon leaves
1 teaspoon anchovy paste
*
1 teaspoon worcestershire sauce
½ teaspoon black pepper
¼ cup sugar
dry mustard and salt
¼ cup cheese
parmesan

Salad
4 chicken breasts
¼ pound mushrooms

1 sweet red bell peppers
optional
1 banana peppers
optional
2 cups lettuce
romaine
*
1 cup croutons
homemade or store-bought

Directions

Both dressing and salad can be prepared a day before serving, if you wish.

Prepare dressing by combining all dressing ingredients, including Parmesan in a bowl.

Whisk until well blended. For best flavor, prepare dressing at least several hours before using. Refrigerate if making a day ahead.

Roast Chicken Breasts, uncovered in a preheated 375℉ (190℃) F oven for 45 to 50 minutes or until chicken feels springy.

Alternately, place chicken breasts, thin ends toward centre, in a microwave-safe pie plate.

Cover with clear wrap and microwave on high for 10 to 15 minutes. Rearrange and turn halfway through cooking. Let stand covered, for 3 minutes. 3.

Cut cooked chickien into ½ inch pieces. Pieces should measure about 2½ cups. Set aside.

Thinly slice mushrooms. Seed red pepper and cut into thin julienne strips about 2½ inches long if using. Seed hot pepper if using and finely chop.

If making salad ahead, combine chicken, mushrooms and peppers if using in a large bowl. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.

When ready to serve, tear lettuce into bite-size pieces. Place in a large salad bowl. Add chicken and vegetables.

Whisk dressing. Drizzle ½ cup dressing over top and toss until evenly coated. Then add remaining dressing, if necessary. Toss until evenly coated.

Place onto serving plates and sprinkle with croutons. Serve and enjoy!

Or toss lettuce separately with just enough dressing. Place lettuce on serving plate, then top with seasoned chicken and veggies. Sprinkle with croutons and serve.
