Caesar salad with parmesan chicken 'croutons'

I haven't had a Caesar salad in...I don't even know how long. I've been craving it. I forgot I was out of gluten-free bread, so I made parmesan chicken 'croutons'. Really, they're just little chicken nuggets with lots of parmesan cheese. This is delicious. Seriously.

Caesar salad with parmesan chicken 'croutons'

1 lb chicken thighs, skinned, boned, and cut into small cubes
1 c parmesan cheese
1 c bread crumbs
1 egg
1/2 c milk
salt and pepper
oil for frying chicken
2 romaine hearts
caesar dressing (I used this recipe and it was awesome)

Sprinkle the chicken thigh pieces with salt and pepper. Combine the cheese and bread crumbs, then beat the egg and milk together. Dip the chicken pieces in the egg, then the cheese-crumb mixture. Heat the oil and fry the chicken pieces until they're cooked. Chop up the romaine hearts and put them in a big salad bowl, then toss with the dressing. Top with the crispy chicken, and serve. Serves 4.
