Heat grill pan to medium-high heat. Mist chicken breasts with olive oil spray and season with 1/4 each salt and pepper. Grill chicken until just cooked through, about 5-6 minutes per side. Place chicken on a cutting board and let rest about 5 minutes to allow juices to redistribute; cut into bite-size pieces.

2. Mix next 8 ingredients and remaining salt and pepper in a blender until well-combined and creamy, scraping down blender sides, as necessary. Add 1 tablespoon water to thin. Stir in grated Parmesan.

3. Toss lettuce, croutons, and dressing in a large bowl; divide among 4 plates. Arrange chicken over salad, sprinkle each evenly with shaved Parmesan.
