Combine remaining half with chicken in resealable plastic food-storage bag. Marinate in refrigerator for 1 hour.

2. Meanwhile, toss torn lettuce with reserved dressing in salad bowl. Cover and refrigerate.

3. Prepare grill. Remove chicken from marinade; discard any extra marinade.

4. Grill chicken about 4 minutes per side or until no longer pink in center. Cut each chicken breast crosswise against grain at 45-degree angle into 3 pieces.

5. Prepare garlic bread following package directions. Cut one quarter of loaf into bite-size cubes. Save remainder of garlic bread for other meals.

6. Arrange lettuce in 4 bowls. Top each with 3 pieces of chicken and bread cubes. Garnish each salad with Parmesan shavings and a twisted anchovy fillet.
