  • 1 Make the Caesar dressing: In a blender or food processor, combine the anchovies, egg yolk, Dijon mustard, McCormick Garlic Powder, lemon juice, and canola oil. Blend until combined with a consistency similar to mayonnaise. Add the Parmesan, salt, and pepper to taste, and blend until smooth. Refrigerate until ready to use.
  • 2 Make the fried chicken: In a medium bowl, combine the flour, salt, McCormick Garlic Powder, and McCormick Paprika. In a separate medium bowl, whisk together the eggs and buttermilk.
  • 3 Pat the chicken thighs dry with a paper towel. Coat the chicken in the flour mixture, then the egg mixture, then again in the flour mixture.
  • 4 Heat ½ inch of canola oil in a large, heavy-bottomed pan over medium-high heat until shimmering. Working in batches to avoid overcrowding the pan, add the chicken thighs to the hot oil and fry until golden brown and crisp, 6–8 minutes per side. Transfer to a paper towel–lined plate to cool, then cut into 1-inch cubes.
  • 5 Make the salad: In a large bowl, gently toss together the Little Gem lettuce, tomatoes, and Caesar dressing. Garnish with fried chicken croutons and more Parmesan.
