  • For the Rest of the Salad:

  • 4 Hard Boiled Eggs, peeled and sliced
  • 8 Thick Slices of Baguette

Preparation

    1) To make the dressing, in a bowl whisk together the mustard, anchovy paste, lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, and salt and pepper to taste. Once thatís all combined, gradually add in the oil in a slow stream while whisking constantly, add the cheese and whisk to combine it all. Place it in a mason jar and set aside.

    2) To make the chicken, preheat a grill pan over medium heat.

    3) In a bowl, toss the chicken with the oil, vinegar, seasoning, garlic, rosemary and salt and pepper. Make sure the chicken is well coated in the marinade and set aside for a few minutes while the grill pan gets nice and hot.

    4) Cook the chicken for about 4 minutes on each side or until fully cooked through (this might take longer if the chicken isnít pounded thin enough)

    5) Remove to a plate to cool slightly.

    6) Brush the slices of bread with a little oil and grill them on both sides on the hot grill pan until they develop grill marks. Set them aside.

    7) To serve, toss the lettuce with a little of the dressing (shake the dressing up if itís been sitting for too long) then place the dressed greens on a platter, cut the chicken in large strips and place them on top of the salad, arrange the hard boiled eggs all around the sides and top with the crispy bread slices!
