How to make Baked Caesar Chicken
Step 1: Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 375 degrees F.
Step 2: Use cooking spray to grease the inside of an 8 x 11-inch baking dish.
Step 3: Place the chicken breasts in a Ziploc bag and onto a flat surface. Pound the breasts with a meat pounder to even the thickness to about ¾”-1″ thickness.
Step 4: Sprinkle the pound chicken breasts with grated Parmesan cheese and freshly ground black pepper. And place the seasoned breasts into the prepared baking dish.
Step 5: In a small bowl, mix the Caesar dressing and sour cream. Evenly pour this over the breasts and sprinkle on top some grated Parmesan cheese.
Step 6: Place in the preheated oven and bake for about half an hour.
Step 7: Adjust the oven to broil and broil for about 2 to 4 minutes or until the chicken breasts are golden brown.
Step 8: You know when it is done when a meat thermometer inserted in the thickest part of the chicken reads 165 degrees F.
Step 9: Take the dish out of the oven and allow the chicken to rest before serving for at least 5 to 10 minutes.
Step 10: If desired, garnish with chopped parsley.
