Chicken Caeser Salad

Super Simple Sunday! Grilled Chicken Caesar Salad. This is Evye’s favorite meal, she’s actually trying to steal some as I type this. I’m going to be honest about a few things here. First, I don’t always grill the chicken, this is why George Foreman is a double millionaire. If I’m short on time on the inside grilling machine it goes. Second, I don’t always have time to marinate either. In a pinch a sprinkle of Cajun seasoning has to do. Third, I don’t make croutons. There is no such thing as left over bread in my house. I do always make own Caesar though it so easy and so much better than store bought. 
Marinade for chicken-
1/2 cup Olive Oil
1/4 cup Red Wine Vinegar
1 tsp Salt( or Cajun Seasoning)
1 tsp Black Pepper
Juice of 1 Lemon
3 Garlic Cloves, minced.
