Mojo Chicken Caesar Salad with Plantain Croutons

Mojo Chicken Caesar Salad with Plantain Croutons

A simple chicken caesar salad made with mojo chicken breast, twice fried plantains as croutons, and a lightened up creamy caesar dressing!

In case you’re new here (hi!), you should know – I loooove Cuban food. Why? Because I’m Cuban! Well, I wasn’t born there but both of my parents are Cuban. That makes me Cuban, right?

Geez, I said that word 4 times. 

Being Cuban means you grow up eating a LOT of carbs.

It was a hard job but someone had to do it. ;)

There was always tostones as a side dish on the table and sometimes there was mojo chicken too. Actually, my mom would add mojo to EVERYTHING.

Even salmon.

Yikes.

But that’s neither here nor there. The bottom line is Cuban food is my life blood and I’m always trying to figure out ways to incorporate it into my daily life.

Today I turned elements of my Cuban roots into a salad!

Aside from making juicy mojo chicken breast, you make crispy twice fried plantains to use as croutons!

Um YES PLEASE. I’ll take tostones as croutons ANY DAY.

Oh wait and the lightened up Caesar dressing? HELLO. SO GOOD.

I’d been wanting to make a homemade Caesar dressing without funky ingredients (and without anchovies because…anchovies). I found this recipe online and it tastes pretty freaking close to the real thing!

So pumped for you guys to give this mojo chicken caesar salad a try.
