This salad is actually a little like the spicy chicken caesar salad you can get at Wendy’s with a few varations. First, the chicken is baked and not fried but still hot and spicy, and I addes some extra veggies of celery and carrots. Then to top it off it has an homemade Caesar salad dressing. If you want you can use any dressing you want homemade or not.
