About this Recipe

This Brava spin on a classic Caesar is eggless and easier to make. To maintain the key element of anchovy, Chef Eric included fish sauce (which is made with anchovies), so there's less prep and just the right amount of flavor to complete this dish. If you're not a fan of anchovies, just skip it; the salad will still be delicious!



Prep chicken

  • Pat chicken breasts dry with paper towels.
  • Season chicken on both sides with a pinch of salt and pepper.
  • Place chicken, skin side down, in Zone 2 of Brava metal tray. Make sure thickest chicken breast is on left side of Zone 2.


Slide metal tray into top shelf

  • Select “Chicken and Caesar Salad” on your Brava touchscreen and follow instructions.
  • After plugging in TempSensor, insert it horizontally through center of chicken breast.
  • While food cooks, prepare vinaigrette and salad.


Make vinaigrette

  • Mince garlic.
  • In small bowl, combine garlic, fish sauce, juice of 1 lemon, 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, ¼ teaspoon salt, ½ teaspoon pepper and half of Parmigiano-Reggiano; stir well. Save remaining Parmigiano-Reggiano for salad.


Prep salad

  • Remove and discard 2 or 3 outer leaves from romaine heart; trim and discard root end.
  • Chop remaining romaine into 1-inch pieces.
  • Cut radicchio in half lengthwise and remove core. Chop half of radicchio into 1-inch pieces. You will have half of radicchio left over.


Toss salad with croutons

  • In large bowl, toss together romaine, radicchio and remaining Parmigiano-Reggiano.
  • Using your hands, break croutons into bite-size pieces. Add half to salad; if desired, save remaining croutons for garnish.


Dress salad & serve

  • When your food is done, cut chicken crosswise into slices.
  • Season salad with salt and pepper, then toss with vinaigrette to taste.
  • Arrange salad and chicken on individual plates.
  • If desired, garnish salad with remaining croutons.
