4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (about 600g)
1 cup Caesar dressing 240 ml
1 ½ cup grated parmesan 180g
½ cup sour cream 120 ml (optional)
Freshly ground black pepper
Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C). Spray the inside of an 8×11″ baking dish with cooking spray.
If the chicken breasts are uneven in thickness, place them in a Ziploc bag and mash them with a meat pounder until they are an even ¾”-1″ thickness.
Sprinkle chicken breasts with grated Parmesan cheese and freshly ground black pepper and place in prepared baking dish.
In a small bowl, whisk together Caesar dressing and sour cream (if using).
Pour the mixture over each chicken breast, then sprinkle grated Parmesan on top.
Bake the chicken in the preheated oven for 30 minutes.
Turn the oven to broil and broil the chicken for an additional 2-4 minutes until browned.
Use a meat thermometer to make sure the chicken is fully cooked – it should register 165°F (74°C) when inserted into the thickest part in the middle of the breast.
Remove the chicken from the oven, cover it with foil and let it rest for 5-10 minutes before serving.
Garnish with chopped parsley, if desired, and serve with your favorite sides.
You can use any brand of Caesar dressing you prefer.
For a healthier option, you can use light or light Caesar dressing.
If you want to add a little more flavor, try marinating the chicken in Caesar dressing for a few hours before cooking.
If the chicken breasts are very large, you can cut them in half or smaller pieces to ensure even cooking.
This recipe is also delicious with grated mozzarella or a mixture of Italian cheeses in place of parmesan.
