For the Salad:

  • 4 cups of mixed greens (e.g. Romaine lettuce, kale, spinach)
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup Caesar dressing (look for a low-carb, sugar-free option)
  • 1/4 cup crumbled bacon (optional)
  • Salt and pepper to taste

For the Grilled Chicken:

  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Preheat a grill or stovetop grill pan over medium-high heat.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together olive oil, lemon juice, minced garlic, salt, and pepper to create a marinade for the chicken.
  3. Place the chicken breasts in the marinade and coat them well. Let the chicken marinate for about 10 minutes.
  4. Grill the chicken breasts for about 5-6 minutes per side, or until they are cooked through and have nice grill marks. Remove from the grill and let them rest for a few minutes before slicing them into thin strips.
  5. In a large salad bowl, combine the mixed greens, grated Parmesan cheese, Caesar dressing, and crumbled bacon (if using). Toss to coat the salad evenly with the dressing.
  6. Add the grilled chicken strips on top of the salad.
  7. Season the salad with additional salt and pepper to taste, if desired.
  8. Enjoy your delicious keto-friendly Caesar Salad with Grilled Chicken!

Note: You can also add other keto-friendly toppings to your salad such as sliced avocado, hard-boiled eggs, or cherry tomatoes for extra flavor and nutrients. Remember to choose Caesar dressing and bacon that are low in carbs and free of added sugars to keep this lunch option in line with the keto diet.
