Cedar Planked Chicken Caesar Salad Recipe

Chicken Caesar Salad is a classic dish at most restaurants. It’s also a family-favourite in households across America. We decided to spice up this classic dish with a Cedar smoked chicken. The fragrant, spicy smoke from the Cedar wood adds a special touch to this dish and makes it an even better backyard BBQ summer salad.
