  1. This is a good version of the classic Chicken Caesar. We make it with Recipe #454679 Hannah's homemade parmesan croutons - or eat in pitas with tomato.
  2. I used to have a chicken caesar salad at Smokey Mountain Pizza, until they closed down! I have been trying to duplicate it at home-now with success! This was SO good. I didn't use any carrot; used chopped red onions instead-just a few croutons (used whole grain) & fat free caesar dressing. I mixed a little lemon juice & black pepper into the dressing for a kick. It turned out GREAT! I loved the grilled chicken part-added a little italian seasoning for more flavor. Thanks so much for sharing this!
  3. Scaled this down for 2 servings for a quick lunch for me and my BF... I grilled the chicken on our gas grill and let it cool slightly as I prepared Recipe #116849 to use for the dressing. I did not use the shredded carrots because I was too lazy to shred them and my BF doesn't think they belong on a caesar salad! Love, love, love this quick and easy salad that really packs a punch, flavor wise... Thanks so much for sharing!
  4. This is so simple and so good! It was ugly outside so grilled the chicken on a stove-top grill pan. Thanks Karen for a great lunch.


<p>I live in Pa (outside of Philadelphia) and cooking, baking, cross-stitching and reading are my hobbies. <br /> <br />I collect cookbooks and cookie stamps/cutters and have a pretty big collection of both. I am also a fan of all things Amish, so I have quite a collection of things picked up in Reading, Lancaster and surrounding areas here in Pennsylvania. <br /> <br />I have 4 kids, who are the loves of my life and cooking for them and my husband keeps me on my toes! ;) <br /> <br />We bought an ice cream parlor in March 04 and it's been quite an experience! <br /> <br />Note: I love getting feedback on my recipes; all I ask is that you actually *make* them before reviewing them. <br /> <br />Also, if you make changes or substitutions, I'd love to see your suggestions and/or comments, but I'd appreciate no rating at all if it's not made as posted. Too many recipe reviews state margarine subbed for butter (if I list butter, it's REAL butter), different spices, low-fat ingredients, whole wheat flour instead of white, etc. The recipes will not work/taste as intended, so it's really not fair to rate them as such. <br /> <br />I'd also really appreciate it if you refrain from rating a recipe if you overcook or overbake it or it you don't refrigerate or store as listed. <br /> <br />I, of course, will adhere to the above when rating recipes, too! <br /> <br />Thanks and have a great day! <br /> <br />My Rating System: <br /> <br />***** A delicious recipe that was thoroughly enjoyed. It has excellent, detailed directions and is perfect as is. If a dish is especially easy, and I'm on the fence, I will give it 5* for ease even if it's very good instead of great. Something I will definitely make again. <br /> <br />**** Excellent recipe but confusing directions that I will make again in my own less confusing way OR Very good recipe that I'll probably make again if I find the time! <br /> <br />*** Good/OK recipe but probably not something I would make again OR Very Good recipe that doesn't have clear, detailed directions. <br /> <br />** Recipe was edible but not really enjoyed and will not be made again. Work involved not a good trade-off for the end result. <br /> <br />* Not edible and probably an error in the recipe. I feel that I pick recipes with ingredients our family likes, so in my opinion, there's an error somewhere. If there's a chance I made the error, I won't rate the recipe. ;) <br /> <br /><img src= border=0 alt=Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket /> <br /> <br /><a href=;current=cookieswapparticip.jpg target=_blank><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /></a> <br /> <br /><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /> <br /><a href=;current=09holidayparticipationbanner.jpg target=_blank><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /></a></p>
