Parmesan and Caesar seasoning add a new twist to crunchy oven-baked chicken.

Cuisine American
Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 30 minutes
Total Time 45 minutes
Yield 6 servings

Ingredients

  • 6-8 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/2 cup creamy Caesar dressing I like Gardini's and Brianna's Asiago Caesar
  • 1/2 cup zesty Italian dressing the actual dressing, not the mix. Like Kraft's Zesty Italian
  • 1 cup shredded Parmesan cheese or grated
  • 1 cup garlic crouton crumbs

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a food processor or blender crush croutons until fine crumbs.
  3. In a shallow bowl combine the Caesar and Italian dressings. Set aside.
  4. In another shallow bowl, combine the Parmesan cheese and crouton crumbs. You can use grated Parmesan if you don't have shredded.
  5. Take each chicken breast and dredge it in the dressing mixture and then roll it in the crumb mixture. Place on a greased cookie sheet and bake for 30-40 minutes or until juices run clear and chicken is done.

Recipe Notes

The measurements are approximate. You just need equal parts Caesar/Italian dressing and equal parts Parmesan cheese/garlic crouton crumbs.
Also, whenever I cook chicken that has a crumb mixture I prefer to cook it on a wire rack on top of a cookie sheet so that the crumb mixture doesn't get soggy.
