Ingredients

  • 4 chicken breasts boneless, skinless
  • pepper to taste
  • 1 cup creamy Caesar dressing*
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 1/2 cups Parmesan cheese grated
  • 1 foil baking tray or freezer safe casserole dish

Instructions

Assembly Instructions:

  • Place the chicken breasts on the bottom of a casserole dish or foil baking tray and sprinkle with pepper.
  • Mix together the Caesar dressing, sour cream, and 1/2 cup of the Parmesan in a bowl until well combined.
  • Spread the dressing mixture on top of the chicken, then sprinkle with the remaining parmesan cheese.
  • Cover the pan with foil and freeze until ready to eat.

Cooking Instructions:

  • Thaw the chicken, then preheat the oven to 375°.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 45-50 minutes.
  • If desired, broil for 3 minutes at the end until the sauce and cheese on top is golden brown. Watch carefully so that it doesn't burn.

Notes

*I prefer to use the Caesar dressing in a jar rather than a bottle. These can usually be found in the produce aisle of the grocery store.
Serving suggestions: Serve over long noodles or rice.
