Baked Caesar

This is one of the best chicken dishes ever and it is such a step up from ranch dressing for those that want a little bit more of a bite to their chicken! I’ve been making this recipe now for about six years and every time I do plates are cleaned and there are never leftovers!

It’s a huge hit with Rey and Brian and if I’m ever asked to bring a plate to dinner I’m always asked to bring my chicken!

It’s incredibly easy, takes very little prep work and dinner is ready in thirty minutes!

Ingredients:
  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 cup caesar dressing (yep ~ you can use fat free!)
  • 1/2 cup – 1 cup Panko bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup seasoned bread crumbs ( I use Progresso Italian & Herb)

** For best results marinate the chicken in the caesar dressing overnight so it really absorbs the flavor

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350. Grease the bottom of a 13 x 9 baking dish (or Pam some tin foil and cover your baking dish ~ This is the no mess method and I LOVE it!) Use a glass bowl to pour the caesar dressing in and coat each piece of chicken stabbing it with a fork so the dressing absorbs into the breast. Place the Panko bread crumbs and seasoned bread crumbs onto a plate and mix together. You can opt not to use the Panko bread crumbs but it gives more texture to the chicken. Take each chicken breast from the bowl and coat in the bread crumbs. Transfer to your baking dish and bake in the oven for about 30 minutes or until the meat thermometer reaches 170 degrees internally.

Serve with your favorite vegetable side dish! We love grilled asparagus with feta cheese!

That’s it ~ enjoy!
