Amazing Grilled Chicken Caesar Salad prepared in an air fryer! One of my favourite options for a healthy lunch or dinner is this one among my best.
Made with croutons, shaved Preaman cheese, sliced avocados, Romaine lettuce, grape tomatoes, and air-fried chicken, with a generous dollop of Caesar dressing on top.

This is a very simple summery supper that tastes fantastic. It’s a great weekday meal if you want to prepare it ahead of time, and the air fryer helps to perfectly cook the chicken.

Expert Advice:

  • Incorporating some culinary tricks to improve the meal along with strictly following the recipe is key to making the ideal Air Fryer Grilled Chicken Caesar Salad. To help you get the most out of this delicious salad, consider these expert tips:
  • Marinate the Chicken: To add more flavour, marinate the chicken in a solution of olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, and any herbs of your choice for at least 30 minutes (or overnight). This gives the chicken a delicate texture and enhances its flavour profile to go well with the Caesar dressing.
  • To Ensure Even Cooking, before air-frying the chicken breasts, pound them to an even thickness. By doing this, you can avoid dry or undercooked sections by ensuring they cook evenly.
  • Before adding the chicken, always make sure your air fryer is preheated for a few minutes. An air fryer that has been preheated aids in the more even cooking and improved sear of the chicken.
  • Leave the lettuce completely dry: Make sure the romaine lettuce is completely dry after washing it by patting it dry with towels or using a salad spinner. Wet lettuce will cause the salad to become soggy and dilute the dressing.
  • Handmade Croutons: Using day-old bread, make your own croutons for a unique touch. Cut the bread into cubes, add your preferred seasonings and olive oil, then air fried till crispy. Custom-made croutons give your salad a distinct taste and texture.
  • Dress to Impress: Use a lower amount of Caesar dressing at first, and then progressively add more to taste. More dressing is simpler to add than to adjust for an excessively dressed salad.
  • Serving Temperature: For a cool taste, serve the salad slightly cold. To emphasise the contrast in textures and temperatures, make sure the chicken is warm.
    Add a squeeze of lemon to the salad as a garnish. Just before eating, pour in some fresh lemon juice to bring out the flavours and add a zesty, bright touch.
