Prep Time
10 minutes
Cook Time
10 minutes
Ingredients
  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into ¾ to 1-inch cubes
  • 1¼ cups store-bought Caesar salad dressing
  • 4 ounces country bread, cut into cubes
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 8 cups chopped romaine lettuce leaves
  • Curls of Parmesan cheese (use a vegetable peeler)
  • 4 metal skewers, preferably 8 to 10 inches long
Directions
  1. Place the chicken in a sealable plastic bag and pour in enough dressing to cover it, about ¾ cup. Seal bag, toss to coat and refrigerate until ready to cook.

  2. Fire up grill, bringing heat to medium. When ready to grill, drain chicken.

  3. Brush bread cubes with oil and skewer, alternating with chicken cubes. Grill skewers uncovered for 7 to 9 minutes, turning to cook on all sides, until chicken is firm and white throughout but still juicy. The bread will get toasty brown like a crouton.
