Make the recipe for the croutons. Microwave 90 seconds instead of 3 minutes. Make the Caesar dressing. You can keep the leftover dressing for more salads!
In a skillet, add the bacon slices and cook until crispy. Save the bacon fat in the frying pan for later use. Take the bacon slices out of the skillet and chop into small pieces on a cutting board.
Slice the chicken breast in half horizontally. Sprinkle the salt and pepper all over. Add the chicken breasts into the previous skillet with the bacon fat and cook 3-4 minutes on each side until perfectly cooked through. Take out of the skillet and slice.
Chop the romaine, dice the tomato and cucumber, and cut the hard boiled eggs in half.
Add all of your salad ingredients, including the croutons, into a large bowl, add the Caesar dressing and toss.
