This is a simple recipe that really hits the spot!

Traditional Caesar salads are usually very high in calories and loaded with unhealthy fat. So, we went ahead and skinnied up these Chicken Caesar Lettuce Cups! We’ve used lean chicken breast, homemade Caesar dressing, romaine lettuce, and Parmesan cheese to keep the classic flavors, but eliminated the croutons. We also added avocados for healthy fat and tomatoes for added nutrition and color.

This is a simple recipe that really hits the spot when you just want to enjoy a Caesar salad, but don’t want to deviate from your healthy eating. They’re even great for lunch at work—just keep the components separate until you’re ready to eat, mix it up, and enjoy!
