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

How to Make Caesar Chicken

This baked chicken caesar recipe couldn’t be easier.

  1. Just place the chicken breasts in a baking dish,
  2. Smother it in a caesar dressing and sour cream mixture (SO creamy),
  3. Then bake chicken in the oven for about 30 minutes at 375°F.
  4. Broil the chicken at the end for just a couple of minutes,
  5. Then cover it and let it rest before serving.

So simple and so yummy! Watch the video and check the recipe card below for the full detailed recipe.

Caesar Dressing

This baked caesar chicken would be nothing without the caesar dressing. Be sure to grab a creamy version of this dressing for ultimate goodness. It’s the creaminess that really makes this melt in your mouth chicken recipe absolutely perfect.

You can find my homemade caesar dressing recipe here (along with my classic caesar salad) if you prefer to make your own.

Serving Suggestions

This Caesar Chicken Recipe can be eaten on its own, served over rice, served with sides like Herb Roasted Potatoes or Lemon Butter Asparagus, or shredded and turned into amazing nachos, tacos, sliders, and more! The possibilities are endless.

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.
