DIRECTIONS

Preheat oven 375°F.

Cut each chicken breast crosswise into 6 slices. In a large bowl, mix together salt, sugar and chili powder. Add chicken slices and toss until chicken is coated.

Place breast slices, spaced apart, on a baking sheet sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. Bake about 16 to 18 minutes, or until chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165°F. Flip pieces halfway through cooking.

To serve, combine Caesar dressing, lime juice and hot sauce in a large bowl. Add romaine and toss till coated. Divide between 2 large plates and scatter with tomato and avocado. Top with sliced chicken breasts. Sprinkle with cilantro and cheese.

Chef's Twist: Try adding sliced black olives, roasted corn, black beans, chopped red onion or even diced mango!
