4 Ingredient Chicken Bake

Creamy Caesar Chicken is the perfect EASY CHICKEN RECIPE to make for a crowd because you can spend time with friends instead of spending time in the kitchen.

This moist and tender chicken is as easy as smothering the chicken breasts in caesar dressing and parmesan cheese. The parmesan helps to thicken the sauce and it all bakes down to cheesy creamy perfection. No need to even season the chicken because the caesar dressing already has enough flavor to go around!

Easy 4 Ingredient Recipe:

  1. Chicken Breasts
  2. Caesar Salad Dressing (try my homemade recipe)
  3. Parmesan Cheese
  4. Sour Cream

What is the best Internal Temperature for Baked Chicken?

The FDA is very clear that chicken should be cooked to an internal temperature of 165°F to avoid salmonella poisoning.

Everyone should own a quick digital meat thermometer to make sure your meat is cooked properly (but not overcooked!). Here is one of my favorites. That one even has the best temps for different types of meats printed right on it. Even someone who cooks often can always use safety reminders.

Don’t forget to download my FREE printable Meat Temperature Chart (<–CLICK) for a handy reminder you can keep right in your kitchen.

What I love most about this easy chicken recipe is that the Caesar sauce covers the chicken, allowing it to cook but protecting it from drying out. It helps to bake the most perfect, moist, flavorful chicken breast. Completely and utterly fool proof. Truly MELT IN YOUR MOUTH.
