Chef Tips: Making great Chicken Caesar Salad
Ingredients are important when making this recipe. If you use the best ingredients then your result will turn out for the best. Some recipes for caesar dressing call for lemon juice, but make sure to add it if your recipe does not call for it. Adding lemon juice will add to the shelf life of storing your caesar dressing. Also when you store the sauce to use another day, store it in an air tight container such as a mason jar.
The first and most important part of making a great chicken caesar salad is to actually make your own chicken. Many people will buy precooked cut chicken and throw it on a salad and call it a day. There's two things wrong with this. One is that buying precooked chicken costs more. Two is that precooked chicken does not taste as good as home cooked. We make our chicken caesar salad with freshly made chicken katsu.
