Ingredients

  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts
  • 1 cup creamy Caesar salad dressing (definitely grab a creamy caesar versus a thinner version), We used Marzetti Supreme Caesar (thick and creamy) although any creamy caesar would be great
  • 1-1½ cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • ***OPTIONAL: 1/2 cup sour cream or mayonnaise. See note below

Instructions

  1. * Note: Do NOT salt the chicken.
  2. Heat oven to 375F and spray the inside of an 8x11 baking dish with cooking spray.
  3. 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.
  4. Pour ¼ cup Caesar salad dressing over each breast (1 cup total over the 4 breasts) then sprinkle grated Parmesan cheese on top.
  5. Place the prepared chicken in the oven and bake at 375F for 30 minutes or until a meat thermometer inserted in the middle of one of the middle breasts reads 155F.
  6. Turn the oven to broil and broil the breasts an additional 2-4 minutes or until the chicken turns golden. 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.
  7. Enjoy!
  8. ***OPTIONAL: If you prefer a thicker crust of sauce on top, add in either 1/2 cup sour cream or 1/2 cup mayo to the caesar and parm mixture. Stir well and follow the directions as above. It is totally optional but can add a thicker layer of creaminess! The pictures above are without the extra layer..

Do you have a caesar dressing you recommend? I've never had much luck finding a store brand.
    Becky Hardin
    Hi! Here is what we used. Any thick/creamy caesar will work great :) http://www.marzetti.com/products/salad-dressings/creamy/supreme-caesar-dressing/?gclid=CKCS0d7p0NUCFQ6ZfgodzM4FlQ&gclsrc=aw.ds

    Love Ken’s Light Creamy Caesar with this. I agree that if the breasts are thin, it only needs about 15 minutes of cooking time, then broiled for about 3 minutes to achieve the golden brown. Then it can sit for 5 minutes. Agree also that it should be freshly grated parm, which can be bought if you don’t want to grate yourself. Simply delicious!!!

    I use GIRARDS dressings BY MARZETTI. NOT THE SWEET STUFF AT ALL. THEY HAVE TWO CAESARS AND MY FAVE CHAMPAGNE DRESSING. THEY COME IN A TRIANGULAR SHAPED BOTTLE WITH GOLD FOIL ON NECK. CAN ORDER OR GET FROM WALMART.
Michelle
Dry and overcooked pork chops are pretty bad, too! Trying this recipe one night this week. Looks delicious! And could it get any easier?
    Becky Hardin
    Thanks Michelle! Hope you love it :)
    Regan
    How did the pink chops turn out. Going big to try tonight the chicken was delicious
    Shana Chelich
    I bet this would be good with pork chops too!
karen
I have the same question, what brand of Caesar dressing do you recommend?

Michelle
What would you serve with this dish?
    Becky Hardin
    SO many options! Asparagus, baked potato, salad, green beans, all would be delicious. It would also be really yummy served over rice or pasta. Hope you love the recipe!!
Shelly

would this be good with a low fat/fat free caesar dressing? My family is trying to cut calories but not taste.
    April
    I just made this using Bolthouse Farms Creamy Ceasar Dressing. I turned out perfectly!
Carolyn
Looks so good but what is the green garnish on top?
Lewis True
Chicken should be cooked to an internal temperature of not less than 165F.
    Amy
    Covering with foil and allow to rest for 5-10 mins will bring it up to the 165F.
Amy
Helo, I am wondering, if 1/4 cup of the Caesar salad dressing is used to bake the chicken, what do you do with the remainder of the dressing? The recipe calls for a 1 cup of Cesar dressing.
    J gill
    The recipe called for 4 chicken breasts and to put 1/4 cup on each piece...
      Betty
      Which type parmesan cheese do you use? The shredded from the cheese section or the Kraft dry type which is not refrigerated at the store?
        Nancy Long
        I would use fresh that you grate yourself - the boxed stuff is cardboard and shredded has cornstarch on it
Rachel
It's 1/4 for each breast. So, using 4 chicken breast it would equal 1 cup.
