Bring a large pot of water to boil. Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain and set aside.
Preheat a grill pan over high heat. Pat the chicken dry and cut into strips. Season with salt, pepper and paprika. Grill from both sides until done, about 5 minutes. Let cool and then slice into bite-sized pieces.
To make the dressing whisk all the ingredients together until you achieve a creamy consistency.
If you are making your own croutons, cut the slice of bread into small cubes and dry fry in a non-stick frying pan over medium heat until golden crispy.
To assemble the salad put the chicken and pasta into a large bowl. Add the lettuce and tomatoes together with the dressing and mix everything until evenly coated. Top with the croutons and serve immediately.
Serve with additional parmesan shavings on the side for even more cheesy goodness!
