About this Recipe

By: Christina Hills

Cobbled together from a couple of New York Times recipes, I created this Chicken Caesar Salad recipe.

I will add photos next time I make it again.  I use chicken tenders because the price per pound is cheaper than breast meat and tastes just as good, if not better!
