1-Season the chicken breasts with salt and pepper. Heat the olive oil in a pan over medium-high heat and cook the chicken until golden and no longer pink in the center, about 7-8 minutes per side. Let it rest before slicing into strips.
2-In a large bowl, toss the romaine lettuce with enough Caesar dressing to coat the leaves. Add anchovy paste to the dressing if desired for an authentic flavor.
3-Add the minced garlic and lemon juice to the salad and toss again.
4-Top the dressed lettuce with the cooked chicken strips, croutons, and grated Parmesan cheese.
5-Serve the salad garnished with Parmesan shavings and lemon wedges on the side.

Grill for Extra Flavor: Grill the chicken instead of pan-frying for a smoky flavor.
Homemade Croutons: Make croutons from scratch using day-old bread for a crunchy texture and better taste.
Dressing Choice: For the best flavor, opt for a homemade Caesar dressing or choose a high-quality store-bought version.
Anchovy Paste: Use anchovy paste to add depth to the dressing, but it's optional if you prefer a milder taste.
Lettuce Selection: Use fresh, crisp romaine lettuce for the base to hold up to the creamy dressing.
Balance of Ingredients: Don't overdress the salad to avoid wilting the lettuce; you can always serve extra dressing on the side.
Proper Cheese: Use freshly grated Parmesan for a superior taste and texture over pre-grated options.
Serving Temperature: Chicken can be served warm or at room temperature based on your preference.
