Chicken Caesar Crouton Cups

Healthy Fact of the Day

The Caesar salad was not invented in Italy as many might assume, but was actually created by Italian-American restaurateur Caesar Cardini in Tijuana, Mexico in 1924. Legend has it that Cardini improvised the salad with ingredients he had on hand when his kitchen supplies ran low on a busy Fourth of July weekend.



  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breast, cooked and diced
  • 4 slices white bread
  • 4 tablespoons melted butter
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese, plus extra for garnish
  • 1 teaspoon
  • Worcestershire sauce
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 2 cups finely chopped romaine lettuce
  • Cherry tomatoes, halved, for garnish



  1. Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. Remove crusts from bread slices and roll each slice flat with a rolling pin.
  3. Brush both sides of each bread slice with melted butter.
  4. Press each bread slice into a muffin tin cup, creating a bowl shape.
  5. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown and crispy. Let cool in the tin.
  6. In a bowl, whisk together mayonnaise, lemon juice, Dijon mustard, minced garlic, Parmesan cheese, and Worcestershire sauce to make the Caesar dressing.
  7. In another bowl, mix the diced chicken with half of the Caesar dressing.
  8. Toss the chopped romaine lettuce with the remaining dressing.
  9. To assemble, fill each bread cup with a layer of dressed lettuce, followed by the chicken mixture.
  10. Garnish with halved cherry tomatoes and a sprinkle of extra Parmesan cheese.
  11. Serve immediately while the bread cups are still crispy.
