Oven-Fried, Caesar Chicken Breasts

Servings: 4

Prep Time: 20 min

Cook Time: 25 to 30 min

Ingredients

1 5-ounce bag; Mrs. Cubbison's Caesar Croutons

1/3 cup; bottled Caesar salad dressing

1 tablespoon; light mayonnaise

1 teaspoon; lemon juice

4 large, fresh chicken breasts; either bone in and skin on or boneless, skinless

Grated parmesan cheese (optional)

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 375°F and lightly coat a cookie sheet with canola or olive oil spray.
  • Place entire package of croutons into a food processor and pulse until crumbed.
  • Whisk together Caesar salad dressing, mayonnaise and lemon juice until creamy; pour into a pie dish (or other shallow dish) and coat the chicken pieces evenly with the mixture.
  • Pour crouton crumbs into a gallon sized zip top bag, and one at a time place a coated chicken breast into the bag, shake lightly to cover with the crumbs, and place on the prepared cookie sheet.
  • Sprinkle with grated parmesan cheese if desired.
  • Bake at 375°F on the center rack of your oven for 25-30 minutes, or until golden browned.
  • Check for doneness of chicken by piercing with a meat forkā€”juices should run clear.
  • Remove and serve.

Tips:

Goes great with a side Caesar salad and steamed, baby red potatoes.
