Chicken Kebab Salad

8 links sweet Italian pork sausage

1 crusty baguette

2 to 3 medium, boneless, skinless chicken breasts

12 fresh bay leaves

1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil

2 lemons

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

Special equipment: 4 large foot-long skewers, metal or thick bamboo work best, soaked in water for half an hour if using bamboo or wood.

Preheat grill to medium-high heat.

For the kebabs:

Slice chicken thinly, cut the baguette into 1/2-inch rounds, and cut the sausage links up into chunks, alternating cuts at 45 degree angles for nice triangular shapes.

Now prepare the kebabs. Take the skewers 1 at a time and begin threading the components alternately. Start with a piece of bread, then chicken, bay leaf, sausage, and bread; repeat this 3 times to fill the skewers, ending with bread.

Lay the prepared kebabs out on your board and drizzle liberally with extra-virgin olive oil. Squeeze the lemon juice all over and season well with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Place the prepared kebabs onto preheated grill and cook for about 7 to 10 minutes per side, or until cooked through.

In a large mixing bowl add the chopped romaine. When the kebabs are done, remove from the oven and slide the kebab components off the skewers directly into the bowl. Add some dressing and gently toss to combine.

To plate, garnish with parsley leaves, shaved Parmesan and fresh lemon wedges
