Heat the oven to 375°F.
Mix the Chicken Allrounder with 2 Tbsp. of the rapeseed oil. Brush the oil mixture evenly onto both sides of the chicken breasts. Set aside.
Toss the lettuce with the tomatoes in a large bowl. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
Heat the remaining 1 Tbsp. rapeseed oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the chicken, then cook for 8 to 10 min. on each side or until the chicken is done (165⁰F). Remove the skillet from the heat.
For the Dressing, peel the garlic and cut it into 4 pieces. Place the garlic in a blender or food processor container.

With the blender running, gradually add the 1/3 cup rapeseed oil through the opening at the top of the blender, mixing well after each addition. Season the dressing with salt and pepper to taste.
Add the Dressing to the Salad; mix lightly. Place the salad on 2 plates.
Cut the chicken into strips, then place it over the salads. Sprinkle it with the remaining Parmesan cheese.
How to Make the Perfect Caesar Salad Dressing
The heart and soul of a remarkable Caesar Salad lies in its dressing – a luscious blend of flavors that elevates the ingredients to new heights. Here's how to achieve that irresistible Caesar dressing. All you need is garlic, anchovies, egg yolk, red wine vinegar, ground mustard, parmesan cheese and rapeseed oil. Grab your blender and add all ingredients, except the rapeseed oil, and blend until smooth. With the blender running, gradually add the rapeseed oil. At the end season with salt and pepper to taste and then you’re ready to go!
Wondering if you can do without the egg yolk? The egg yolk is an important ingredient of the dressing, because it serves as the emulsifier, binding the ingredients together into a smooth and cohesive texture.
