    Directions

    1. Cook the egg for 1 minute in boiling water. Let cool.
    2. In a bowl, mix the oil, vinegar, mustard, lemon juice, salt, pepper, and 1 clove of crushed garlic. Mix vigorously until the mixture is smooth. Add the egg, and beat again.
    3. Cut the baguette lengthwise, and rub each half with the remaining garlic clove. Then cut the baguette into cubes. In a pan, heat the olive oil with the garlic used for the bread. When the oil is hot and fragrant, remove the garlic, and brown the croutons. Stir regularly and remove from heat when golden.
    4. Put the cut lettuce leaves on the bottom of the bowl, then place on top the croutons, chopped anchovies, and the chicken. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese, and serve the sauce on the side.
