Like your caesar salad extra garlicky? This quick and easy recipe for chicken caesar salad includes three cloves of garlic and avocado to make a delicious warm salad.


  • 4 skinless chicken breasts
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil

  • 3 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons fresh thyme leaves
  • 250-255g bag Caesar salad
  • 1 small red onion
  • 1 large, ripe avocado


  1. Preheat the grill to medium-high. Place 1 chicken breast in a food bag. Using a rolling pin, lightly bash out the thickest part of the chicken until it’s of an even thickness. Place in a non-metallic bowl. Repeat with the remaining chicken breasts. Pour over the olive oil, lemon zest and juice, the chopped garlic and thyme leaves. Season well, mix and marinate for a couple of min.
