How to make Baked Caesar Chicken

Step 1: Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 375 degrees F. Using cooking spray, grease the inside of an 8 x 11-inch baking dish.

Step 2: if using chicken breasts with uneven thickness, place them in a Ziploc bag and on a flat surface. Using a meat pounder, pound the breasts to an even 3/4 to 1-inch thickness. With grated Parmesan cheese and freshly ground black pepper, sprinkle both sides of the breasts. Into the prepared baking dish, lay the breasts.

Step 3: In a small bowl, combine the Caesar dressing and sour cream. Then, pour this over each breast and sprinkle with grated Parmesan cheese.

Step 4: Into the preheated oven, place the baking dish, and bake the breasts for about 30 minutes or until the thickest part of the breast reached 150 degrees F.

Step 5: Broil the breasts for about 2 to 4 minutes or until the chicken is golden brown. Once done, the internal temperature of the breasts reaches 165 degrees F.

Step 6: Take the breasts out of the oven and loosely tent them with foil to let the chicken rest for about 5 to 10 minutes.

Step 7: Serve the baked Caesar chicken warm garnished with some chopped parsley. Enjoy!
