Parmesan Chicken with Caesar Roasted Romaine

Crunchy Parmesan chicken paired with savory roasted romaine is such a great meal and so easy to make!

Hope my fellow Americans have a safe and fun Independence Day. We're excited to be grilling out tonight and I wish I had a more appropriate recipe to share today, but decided to go with one that I really enjoyed nonetheless. This Parmesan chicken is fantastic - I'm not always a fan of having to bread meat, but you just pat the coating on for this dish, so it's way less messy! It was also my first time roasting lettuce and although I did not use anchovies like in the original dish, I did try and add a bit of that flavor with Worcestershire. I was definitely not ready to step too far out of my comfort zone. We loved the roasted romaine. It was interesting in the best sort of way. It paired perfectly with the crunchy chicken!

What you need:
  • 1 lb. chicken tenderloins
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1/2 cup shredded Parmesan
  • 1/2 cup Panko bread crumbs
  • 3 Tbsp. olive oil, divided
  • 1 Tbsp. dried parsley
  • 2 cloves minced garlic, divided
  • Worcestershire sauce, to taste 
  • 2 large hearts romaine, halved lengthwise
  • 1 lemon, cut into 8 wedges
  1. Season chicken with salt and pepper. Place on a lined baking sheet that has been lightly greased with nonstick spray.
  2. Combine Parmesan, panko, 2 Tbsp. oil, parsley, and 1 clove minced garlic in a medium bowl. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Pat panko mixture onto each piece of chicken.
  4. Bake chicken in a preheated 450 degree oven for 10 minutes or until it begins to turn golden.
  5. In a small bowl, combine remaining 1 Tbsp. oil with 1 clove minced garlic and a little bit of Worcestershire (about 1/2 to 1 tsp.).
  6. Place romaine around chicken on baking sheet and drizzle with oil mixture.
  7. Roast for about 5 more minutes or until lettuce has browned on the edges and chicken has cooked through.
  8. Serve with a squeeze of lemon over the top.
