We’re updating the classic Caesar salad two ways. Instead of romaine lettuce, we’re using lacinato kale, a hearty, healthful and delicious Tuscan variety. To complement the crunchy chicken and creamy dressing, we’re also pickling celeriac (the large, edible root of a plant in the celery family) with honey and white wine vinegar. Pickling adds a kick to its earthy, fresh flavor, making it a zesty addition to this fine dining standard.

instructions
Prepare the ingredients:
1 Prepare the ingredients:

Preheat the oven to 375°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Cut out and discard the kale stems; slice the leaves into ribbons. Peel and cut the celeriac into matchsticks. Place the celeriac in a bowl with the white wine vinegar and honey. Peel and mince the garlic; smash with the flat side of your knife until it resembles a paste. Quarter the lemon and remove the seeds.

Pound & bread the chicken:
2 Pound & bread the chicken:

Cover each chicken breast with a sheet of plastic wrap (or place in a plastic bag). Using a flat mallet or heavy skillet, pound the chicken to about a ½-inch thickness. Place the milk, flour and panko breadcrumbs into 3 separate dishes. Add half the Parmesan cheese to the panko and mix well. Working one at a time, completely cover each chicken breast with a layer of flour (shaking off the excess), then milk (letting the excess drip off), then the panko-Parmesan mixture. Transfer the coated breasts to a plate.

Cook the chicken:
3 Cook the chicken:

In a large pan, heat a thin layer of oil on medium-high until hot. When the oil is hot enough that a few breadcrumbs sizzle immediately when added to the pan, add the breaded chicken. Cook 2 to 4 minutes per side, or until golden brown and cooked through. Transfer the cooked chicken to a paper towel-lined plate. Season immediately with salt and pepper.

Toast the hazelnuts:
4 Toast the hazelnuts:

Place the hazelnuts on a sheet pan and toast in the oven 3 to 5 minutes, or until lightly browned and fragrant. Place the toasted hazelnuts in a clean kitchen towel. Fold the towel over the nuts and vigorously rub with the towel to remove the skins. Discard the skins and roughly chop the hazelnuts.

Make the dressing:
5 Make the dressing:

In a small bowl, combine the mayonnaise, garlic paste, the juice of all 4 lemon wedges and half the remaining Parmesan cheese. Slowly whisk in about 1 tablespoon of olive oil until well combined; season with salt and pepper to taste.

Make the salad & plate your dish:
6 Make the salad & plate your dish:

When cool enough to handle, chop the chicken into bite-sized pieces. In a large bowl, combine the chopped chicken, kale, remaining Parmesan cheese, pickled celeriac and toasted hazelnuts. Add enough of the dressing to coat the salad(you may have extra dressing); gently toss to mix and season with salt and pepper to taste. Divide the salad between 2 dishes. Enjoy!
