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..

I know your recipe says 30 minutes at 375 or to an internal temp of 155 so I go 30 minutes and it is way over done; like 180 after the broiler. I broiled only til browned. I'm sure my oven is pretty accurate because it's a new Wolf range. I would start checking the internal temp at just over 20 minutes. Otherwise, I liked it quite well.
Victoria
Made this tonight. It was so easy & delicious! Everyone cleaned their plate.
Elsie
What is the green garnish on your?
    MomofTwoPreciousGirls
    Just guessing, but looks like cilantro?
    Ruben
    Could be flat leaf parsley.

Just pulled it out of the oven. I added 1/2c. mayo to the dressing, and my chicken is sitting in a pool of cheese with a layer of oil on top of it. It broke, majorly. Doesn't look very appetizing. Did I do something wrong? My chicken breasts weren't that thick to begin with, and I split them, then pounded them a little thinner, so I only cooked them for about 18 minutes, and then put the broiler on. Hoping they taste good...
    Michelle
    They tasted good, but I wouldn't add the mayo next time. The taste of it was overpowering. I think the dressing is enough. It's such an easy recipe, I will definitely try it again.

    I added the sour cream, hoping for a thicker sauce and wound up with the same problem you describe. There was an oil slick floating on the top and my sauce was broken. The sour cream did nothing to thicken it at all. The chicken tasted good. If I were to try to use sour cream again as a thickening agent I would remove the chicken from the pan then add it.
Pili
I made this exactly as shown. I did not like it. The Caesar dressing was too strong. Won't do it again

    Need receive for caesar chicken breasts
    JUDY

Marcia Snyder
Can you fix this in a slow cooker (crock pot) ?
CarolMackey
Do you adjust the racks to broil it closer to the top of the oven? Mine were on the bottom for baking and above the middle for broiling. Used thighs, so adjusted the cooking time, but broiling from the lower rack has me stymied.Very hard to read this light grey font when your eyesight is poor!
Ruben
Do you use freshly grated parmesan cheese or bottled like Kraft.
Kerry
I made this using the Marketside brand Caesar dressing sold by Wal-Mart's deli and it was delicious! I served it over garlic basmati rice with extra fine green beans. Easiest meal to prepare but tasted like I spent all day in the kitchen!
