  6. Place the romaine lettuce on the grill with the chicken breast fillets until the outer leaves are grilled but not black.
  7. Take the bread cube and romaine lettuce off the grill and put the whole lettuce half on a plate.
  8. For the dressing, we take the high-quality olive oil and mix it with the chopped garlic, lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce and Dijon mustard. Flavor it with Helvetic Barbeque Salt-n-Pepper RUB.
  9. Now we take the chicken breast fillet from the grill (core temperature 65 degrees), let it rest briefly and cut it into strips and place it on the romaine lettuce.
  10. Now we add the crispy bacon cubes, crusty bread cubes and freshly grated Parmesan.
  11. Now chop the chives and sprinkle them over the salad and Pour the delicious dressing over the salad.
