We love the smoky, zesty flavor that blackening seasoning adds to this seared chicken breast. The mixture of chili powder, paprika, garlic, and onion turns up the volume, while the tart, tangy Caesar dressing you make yourself cools things off. Topped with crispy shallots, this isn't just a Caesar salad, this is the Caesar salad.

    1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Peel and slice shallot into very thin rounds. Mince garlic. Hold romaine hearts at root end and chop coarsely. Halve tomatoes. Pat chicken breasts dry, and season both sides with a pinch of salt and blackening seasoning.

  • Step 2 - Make the Crispy Shallots
    2

    Make the Crispy Shallots

    Line a plate with a paper towel. Place a medium pan over medium heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. In a mixing bowl, toss shallots with rice flour until evenly coated. Shaking off excess, add shallots to hot pan. Stir constantly until golden brown, 2-3 minutes. Larger shallot rings may soak up oil. If pan gets dry, add 2 tsp. olive oil. Remove shallots to towel-lined plate and season with a pinch of salt and pepper. Reserve pan; no need to wipe clean

  • Step 3 - Cook the Chicken

    Cook the Chicken

    Return pan used to cook shallot to medium heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil. Add chicken to hot pan and cook until blackened and chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 5-7 minutes per side. True to its name, spices on chicken will blacken when cooked. This is ideal, as toasting spices brings out more flavor. Remove chicken from pan and rest at least 5 minutes. Slice rested chicken into ½" slices. While chicken cooks, make dressing.

  • Step 4 - Make the Dressing
