BAKED CHICKEN WITH CAESAR DRESSING


This Baked Caesar Chicken Recipe only has FOUR INGREDIENTS…It’s the type of pantry recipe you can throw together in minutes and happily feed the family.

You’ll look like a chef but this couldn’t be more simple. Budget, tummy, and time friendly. My absolute favorite type of easy weeknight meal to make on a whim. After you’ve made it once, you’ll remember it for a lifetime! When I posted this recipe, it immediately took off and became one of the most popular on my site. It’s the type of recipe this site was built on…SIMPLE!


You’ll Need:


  • 4 chicken breasts boneless, skinless
  • 1 cup Caesar salad dressing (click for homemade recipe)
  • ½ cup sour cream (optional)
  • 1-1½ cup Parmesan cheese grated

Instructions:


  1. Heat oven to 375F and spray the inside of an 8" x 11" baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. If the breasts are uneven thickness, pound them (placed in a Ziploc bag and on a flat surface) to an even ¾"-1" thickness using a meat pounder. Sprinkle the breasts (both sides) with grated Parmesan cheese & freshly ground black pepper, and place them in the prepared baking dish.
  3. Whisk together Caesar dressing and sour cream in a small bowl. Pour the Caesar/sour cream mixture over each breasts then sprinkle grated Parmesan cheese on top.
  4. Place the prepared chicken in the oven and bake at 375F for 30 minutes or until a meat thermometer inserted in the thickest part of one of the middle breasts reads 150°F.
  5. Turn the oven to broil and broil the breasts an additional 2-4 minutes or until the chicken turns golden brown. It can burn quickly, so watch it closely. When done, a meat thermometer should register 160F when stuck into the thickest part of one of the middle breasts. Remove from the oven, cover loosely with foil and allow chicken to rest 5-10 minutes before serving.
  6. If desired, garnish with chopped parsley.


NOTES:

* Note: Do NOT salt the chicken.
