This Caesar Chicken Recipe can be eaten on its own, served over rice, served with sides like Herb Roasted Potatoes or Lemon Butter Asparagus, or shredded and turned into amazing nachos, tacos, sliders, and more! The possibilities are endless.

WHAT IS THE BEST INTERNAL TEMPERATURE FOR BAKED CHICKEN?

The FDA is very clear that chicken should be cooked to an internal temperature of 165°F to avoid salmonella poisoning. Everyone should own a quick digital meat thermometer to make sure your meat is cooked properly (but not overcooked!). Here is one of my favorites. That one even has the best temps for different types of meats printed right on it. Even someone who cooks often can always use safety reminders.

What I love most about this easy chicken recipe is that the Caesar sauce covers the chicken, allowing it to cook but protecting it from drying out. It helps to bake the most perfect, moist, flavorful chicken breast. Completely and utterly fool proof!
