Prepare a medium-high gas or charcoal grill fire. When hot, clean the grate with a stiff wire brush and then wipe it down with a folded paper towel dipped in oil. In a medium bowl, toss the chicken with 1 Tbs. of the dressing, 1/2 tsp. salt, and 1/4 tsp. pepper. Grill, covered, turning once, until nicely browned and cooked through, 3 to 5 minutes per side. Let cool and slice thinly just before serving.
Reduce the grill to medium-low heat (or let the fire die down). Generously brush the bread slices on both sides with the oil and sprinkle with a little salt. Grill the bread, covered, until golden brown on both sides, 1 to 3 minutes per side. Rub the bread on both sides with the cut sides of the garlic. Let the bread cool for a few minutes and then cut into 1/2-inch cubes.
Set 6 large dinner plates on the counter. Arrange a sliced chicken thigh in the center of each plate and position some of the slices near the edge of the plate so theyfll be visible after the salad is mounded on top. Spoon about a teaspoon of the Caesar dressing over each of the sliced thighs.
Put the romaine in a large mixing bowl and toss with about 6 Tbs. of the dressing. Add 6 Tbs. parmigiano and a big pinch each of salt and pepper to the bowl and toss again. Arrange the romaine over the chicken on each plate. Sprinkle about half of the croutons over the plates.
Toss the endive in the mixing bowl with 2 to 3 Tbs. dressing. Add 2 Tbs. parmigiano and a pinch each of salt and pepper and toss again. Arrange the endive in the center of the romaine on each plate.
Toss the frisée in the mixing bowl with about 2 Tbs. of the dressing. Add 2 Tbs. parmigiano and a pinch each of salt and pepper and toss again. Pile the frisee in the center of the salads. Sprinkle the remaining cheese, croutons, and the parsley over the salads. Serve.
