Directions:

  1. First, make the dressing. In a bowl, whisk together the egg yolks, lemon juice, mustard powder, Worcestershire sauce, and pepper sauce. Whisking continuously, gradually whisk in the vegetable oil and then the olive oil, a little at a time, until the dressing forms an emulsion. If it is too thick, whisk in a little cold water.
  2. Place about half of the dressing in a large bowl, then add the lettuce leaves, croutons, and half of the Parmesan. Toss gently to coat the leaves.
  3. Lay out the leaves on serving plates or a platter, and top with the chicken and anchovies.
  4. Sprinkle with the remaining Parmesan, drizzle with some more of the dressing, and serve.
Tips:
