Preheat oven to 200ºC.

In a small bowl, whisk together the lemon juice and zest with half the olive oil and pour over the chicken breasts. Marinate for 30 minutes.

Heat a griddle pan, and cook chicken for five minutes on each side or until cooked through. Remove and set aside.

Place baguette slices on a baking tray; drizzle with remaining olive oil and sprinkle over salt and pepper. Bake until golden brown.

DRESSING:

Place the garlic cloves, anchovies and egg in a blender. Blitz for one minute, slowly add the oil in a thin stream, allowing the mixture to emulsify. Stir through grated Parmesan, lemon juice and zest, and season well.

Divide lettuce between serving dishes and top each plate with a sliced chicken breast, croutons and the Parmesan shavings. Drizzle dressing over and toss to coat.
