Grilled Chicken Caesar Salad

A newfound favorite: the ever-popular Caesar salad, teamed up with
chicken.  Grill the chicken on the barbecue to add even more flavor.

Makes 4 servings

1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
3 garlic cloves, minced
15 ounces skinless boneless chicken breasts
1/3 cup nonfat sour cream
1/4 cup reduced-calorie mayonnaise
3 tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan cheese
2 tablespoons minced fresh flat-leaf parsley
1 tablespoon skim milk
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1/4 teaspoon anchovy paste
8 cups torn Romaine lettuce leaves
5 large plum tomatoes, cut into thin wedges
1/2 cup sliced red onion, separated into rings

To prepare marinade, in gallon-size sealable plastic bag, combine 3 tablespoons
of the juice and half the garlic; add chicken. Seal bag, squeezing out air;
turn to coat chicken. Refrigerate 30 minutes, turning bag occasionally. Preheat
outdoor barbecue grill according to manufacturer's directions, or preheat
broiler and spray rack in broiler pan with nonstick cooking spray. To prepare
salad dressing, in small bowl, combine sour cream, mayonnaise, 1 tablespoon of
the cheese, the parsley, milk, salt, pepper, Worcestershire sauce, anchovy paste
and remaining garlic; with wire whisk, add remaining juice, blending until well
combined. Set aside. Drain and discard marinade. Grill chicken over hot coals
or place onto prepared rack in broiler pan and broil 4" from heat, turning once,
5-6 minutes, until chicken is golden brown, cooked through and juices run clear
when pierced with fork. Meanwhile, in large bowl, combine lettuce, tomatoes
and onion. Slice chicken breasts. Pour dressing over salad; toss to coat.
Arrange chicken slices on salad; sprinkle with remaining 2 tablespoons cheese.
