- COMBINE anchovy fillets with garlic in a large bowl. Mash well with a fork. Whisk in light mayo, lemon juice and Dijon mustard. Gradually pour in olive oil while whisking. Add brussels sprouts and 1/4 cup grated parmesan. Toss well to coat.
- HEAT a large non-stick frying pan over medium. Cook bacon until crisp, 3 to 4 min. Transfer onto a paper-towel-lined plate. Cut chicken breasts in half horizontally and sprinkle with salt. Season with fresh pepper. Arrange chicken in pan. Cook until springy when pressed, about 4 min per side. Remove pan from heat and cover to keep warm.
- ASSEMBLE salad by distributing brussels sprouts among 4 plates. Top with sliced chicken and bacon.
Use a mandoline or the slicer attachment in your food processor to shred the brussels sprouts evenly.
