    I thought this dish tasted a lot like a well-made chicken caesar salad. I did make a few modifications: used more heat resistant shredded spinach instead of lettuce and used only enough caesar dressing to coat (but not drown) the other ingredients. I was even able to eat it for lunch the next day!  -  19 Apr 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    this was a great recipe. i used spinach instead of the lettuce and added bell peppers (yellow and red) for more color and to add some extra vegtables. It turned out great!  -  24 Jul 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
