- 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
- 1 cup Caesar dressing
- 1.5 cups freshly grated Parmesan cheese
- Seasoning: Salt and pepper, as per your preference
- Optional for extra creaminess: 1/2 cup sour cream
- Begin by warming your oven to 375°F (190°C) and brush your chosen baking dish with a light coating of oil or non-stick spray.
- To ensure an even cook and tender bite, use a meat pounder to gently flatten the chicken breasts to about 1-inch thickness. In a bowl, whisk together the Caesar dressing with sour cream (if you’re including it).
- Delicately season each chicken breast. Top each piece with 1/4 cup of the freshly grated Parmesan cheese and nestle them into the baking dish.
- Lavishly coat the chicken with the sauce. Scatter the leftover Parmesan cheese for a golden crust.
- Transfer to the oven, letting it bake for about 25-30 minutes. Once the chicken is thoroughly cooked and has a golden hue, it’s ready.
Sprinkle some freshly chopped parsley for a dash of color and flavor. To elevate this meal, consider pairing with oven-roasted veggies or a crisp arugula salad.
