BAKED CAESAR CHICKEN





BAKED CAESAR CHICKEN

Using a delicious homemade blender Caesar Dressing, this chicken dish is so flavorful and easy to make! I like easy baked chicken recipes. Fun and quick to make, these kinds of recipes are great for a weeknight supper when one is too tired for complicated dishes.


2 large chicken breasts or 4 small
  (11/2 lbs; 0.680 kg)
Seasoning salt, to taste
2 tbsp Parmesan cheese, divided (30 mL)
Creamy Blender Caesar Dressing:
1/2 cup light-tasting olive oil (125 mL)
1/3 cup sour cream (150 mL)
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese (60 mL)
1/4 cup water (60 mL)
2 tbsp mayonnaise (30 mL)
2 tsp lemon juice (10 mL)
1 tsp Spicy brown mustard* (5 mL)
1 tsp regular mustard (5 mL)
1 tsp crushed garlic (5 mL)
1/2 tsp salt (2 mL)
1/2 tsp black pepper (2 mL)

Preheat the oven to 425°F (220°C).

If the chicken breasts are large, slice them in half horizontally.

Sprinkle chicken breasts with seasoning salt lightly on both sides.  Place in 9 x 13-inch (23 x 33 cm) baking dish.  Pour Creamy Blender Caesar Dressing over the chicken cutlets.  Sprinkle with 1 tbsp (15 mL) Parmesan cheese.  Bake chicken 20 to 25 minutes {you could use a meat thermometer; 165°F (74°C)} until cooked through. Sprinkle with remaining Parmesan cheese and broil 2 to 3 minutes, or until the cheese has browned nicely.

Helpful Hint:  *Dijon mustard may be used instead of the mustards suggested in the ingredient listing.
