  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (about 6-8 oz each)

  • 2 tbsp olive oil, divided

  • 1 tsp garlic powder

  • Salt and pepper to taste

  • 1 romaine lettuce heart, chopped

  • 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese

  • Caesar dressing (homemade or store-bought, look for low-carb options)

  • Cherry tomatoes, halved (about 1/2 cup)

  • Cucumber slices (about 1/2 cup)

  • Avocado slices (optional)

  • Fresh lemon wedges (for serving)


  1. Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C).

  2. Season the chicken breasts with garlic powder, salt, and pepper on both sides.

  3. In a large oven-safe skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil over medium-high heat. Once hot, add the chicken breasts and sear for about 2-3 minutes on each side until they develop a golden-brown crust.

  4. Transfer the skillet with the chicken to the preheated oven and cook for an additional 12-15 minutes or until the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165°F (74°C). Cooking times may vary based on the thickness of the chicken breasts, so keep an eye on them.

  5. While the chicken is cooking, prepare the salad. In a large bowl, combine the chopped romaine lettuce, cherry tomatoes, cucumber slices, and avocado (if using).

  6. Drizzle the remaining 1 tablespoon of olive oil over the salad and toss everything together until well coated.

  7. Once the chicken is fully cooked, remove it from the oven, and let it rest for a couple of minutes. Then, slice the chicken breasts into thin strips.

  8. Add the sliced chicken to the salad bowl and sprinkle the grated parmesan cheese on top.

  9. Finish the salad by drizzling your desired amount of Caesar dressing. Be sure to choose a low-carb option, and you can even try making your own if you prefer!

  10. Toss the salad gently to combine all the flavors, and give it a taste. Adjust seasoning with more salt and pepper if needed.

  11. Serve your delicious low-carb, high-protein Chicken Caesar salad immediately with fresh lemon wedges on the side for an extra burst of flavor.
