Servings 12 people
Total Time 45 mins


  • grated parmesan cheese
  • shredded iceberg lettuce
  • cooked rotisserie chicken diced

For the dressing:

  • 1 tsp anchovy paste
  • 2 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • ½ cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp pepper


  • Heat a wide bottom frying pan and place a couple of tablespoons of grated parmesan into the pan. As soon as it begins to bubble and is golden underneath, remove with a spatula and place over a cupcake tin upside down to form the basket shape and leave to cool.

To make the dressing:

  • Place the anchovy paste, lemon juice, mustard and Worcestershire sauce in a bowl and mix (add minced garlic if you wish at this stage).
  • Add in the mayonnaise, parmesan cheese, salt and pepper and mix until combined.
    This dressing will keep in the fridge for up to one week.
  • Toss the iceberg lettuce in the Caesar dressing.
    Once hardened and cool, place the parmesan nests onto a platter and fill each one with the lettuce. Top with a few pieces of the diced cooked chicken.
