Preparation

Clean, wash, dry and tear the lettuce into large pieces, trying to use mainly the inside tender leaves. Dice the bread and toast it in a non-stick frying-pan for a few seconds with 4 spoonfuls of oil in, until the croutons are an even golden brown colour.

To make the dressing, combine the egg yolk, the mustard and the lemon juice in a bowl. Blend with a hand whisk or stab mixer, dribbling in about half a glass of oil, until the consistency is creamy. Peel the garlic removing the core and add it to the mayonnaise and season with the Worcester sauce, a pinch of salt and a dash of pepper and stir thoroughly. Place the lettuce, the croutons, the Parmesan cheese and almost all the dressing in a large salad bowl. Mix thoroughly and set aside.

Slice the chicken fairly thickly and season it on both sides with salt, pepper and oil. Cook on a hot griddle for about 3-4 minutes per side. Take off the heat and coat the chicken with the dressing set aside. Cut the meat into strips, place on the lettuce and serve at once.
