Toss to coat evenly and then season with salt and pepper to taste. Bake for about 5 minutes or until they are crisp but not yet brown. Remove from oven and set aside to cool on a paper towel.

To make the salad. place the tomatoes, pepper, cucumber, onion, mixed greens, olives and capers in a large bowl. Add the croutons and half of the dressing. Toss lightly. Serve the rest of the dressing on the side. Serve the salad into 4 individual portions and top with the chicken. Enjoy!
