Charred Kale Caesar Salad with Honey Chipotle Chicken is a fun twist on a traditional caesar salad, using kale instead of romaine. Chicken is tossed in a sweet, spicy and smoky marinade and then baked to perfection in a hot oven. Kale is charred to give it a unique and sweet taste, and then topped with honey chipotle chicken, homemade caesar dressing, fresh and creamy blue cheese and sautéed mushrooms. This kale caesar salad will be a hit!
