Dinner on the Farm

Chicken Caesar Parmasean

A few weeks ago our local grocer had boneless, skinless chicken breasts on-sale for $1.99 a lb. I picked up several packages to have on-hand for chicken salad, to grind at a fantastic price or just to bake. One of my favorite chicken breast dinners is Chicken Caesar Parmasean.

Take 4 chicken breasts and pound them just a little to make them about 1" thick and cut them in half. Cutting them in half creates a good 4-5oz piece or one serving.

Marinade them in Ken's Lite Options Caesar salad dressing. Ken's salad dressing is made from extra virgin olive oil and is only 80 calories for 2 tbsp. I would bet you don't have quite 2 tbsp on each chicken breast serving.

Place them on a broiler pan sprayed well with an olive oil non stick spray.

Bake 40 minutes at 375 degrees in the middle of your stove.

Then sprinkle Parmesean cheese to lightly coat the top of the breasts and let them cook another 5-10 min. Generally Parmasean cheese is 10 calories per tsp. so very good to use if you use it lightly to season.

I cook more than we'll eat tonight because I will make our lunches (wraps) to save calories and money. If there is any left I'll make another wrap for the next day!

Also, about every 3 months in the Sunday newspaper coupon inserts there is a  $1 off 1 Ken's salad dressing coupon. About the same time our local grocer puts these salad dressings on-sale for 5 for $5. I have not had to buy Ken's salad dressing in 2 years as I stock up a generous supply!
