Low Sodium Baked Caesar Chicken

This is one of those recipes that when you read it you think to yourself, “Oh no; I don’t THINK so!” We honestly thought that this would turn into a soggy mess, and that the chicken would dry out, and that all other possible catastrophes would occur and rightly so! But, to our surprise, the reviews were astonishing… people were loving it! The original recipe had this general idea for pork chops, which is what we did the first time we made it. We aren’t big fans of pork, except for BACON, but we thought we could give it a try.

Surprisingly good! And a very quick fix. I turned my attention to tailoring the recipe to a low sodium chicken dish, and came up with this. It has turned into a family favorite, and even Aidan loves to eat this chicken. He begged for some even after he had finished his dinner (he eats earlier than us) and polished off about half a chicken breast! Apparently, it is working for us!

Low Sodium Baked Caesar Chicken – approx. 158mg each

  • 1/4 c flour
  • 1 tbsp Salt Free Garlic & Herb (McCormick Salt Free or Mrs. Dash)
  • 4 chicken breasts trim, wash, and pat dry – 75mg each
  • 1/2 c Lighthouse Chunky Garlic Caesar Dressing – 220mg total
  • 4 tbsp Parmesan cheese – 110mg total

Mix the flour and seasoning together on a plate and place the dressing in a shallow bowl. Coat each chicken breast in the flour, and then submerge in the dressing; remove so the chicken breast is coated completely. Place in a greased glass dish and top with a sprinkling of Parmesan cheese. Bake uncovered for 25-30 minutes at 375.

Optionally, serve with Caesar salad and corn. Enjoy!
