CHICKEN - Casa Lulu (with Kenny)
Melt in Your Mouth Caesar Chicken

Melt in Your Mouth Caesar Chicken


4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts
1 cup creamy Caesar salad dressing (definitely grab a creamy Caesar versus a thinner version)
1-1½ cup grated Parmesan cheese
***OPTIONAL: 1/2 cup sour cream or mayonnaise. See note below


* Note: Do NOT salt the chicken.
Heat oven to 375° F and spray the inside of an 8x11 baking dish with cooking spray.
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.
Pour ¼ cup Caesar salad dressing over each breasts then sprinkle grated Parmesan cheese on top.
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 155° F.
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.
***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 Parmesan mixture. It is totally optional but can add a thicker layer of creaminess! The pictures above are without the extra layer..
