Our baked Caesar chicken makes the perfect four-ingredient recipe (OK, six ingredients if you count salt and pepper) to add into your weekly meal prep rotation. All it takes is chicken breasts, a bottle of Primal Kitchen Caesar Dressing, some seasoning, and a sprinkle of chopped fresh parsley to add a pop of green and a bit of fresh herb flavor to this creamy Caesar chicken.
This Caesar chicken recipe proves its weekly meal prep worthiness by being as versatile as it is easy. Don't have Caesar Dressing on hand? Substitute Ranch or Dreamy Italian Dressing.

Baked Caesar Chicken Breasts
Our baked caesar chicken breasts make the perfect four-ingredient recipe to add into your weekly meal prep rotation. All it takes is chicken breasts, a bottle of Primal Kitchen Caesar Dressing, seasoning, and a sprinkle of chopped fresh parsley to add a pop of green and herb flavor for a creamy Caesar Chicken dish.
3 skinless, boneless chicken breasts
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. black pepper
1/4 cup vegan parmesan cheese alternative (we used Thrive Market brand)*
1 tsp. parsley, minced
Preheat oven to 400ºF. Place chicken breasts in an oven-safe casserole dish. Season both sides of each chicken breast with salt and pepper.
Sprinkle parmesan cheese alternative (or parmesan cheese) over the top of each chicken breast. Pour half of the bottle of Caesar Dressing on top of the chicken breasts. Turn the chicken breasts over with tongs to make sure they are coated thoroughly.
Cover the casserole dish with foil, and place in the oven. Bake for 10 minutes, then remove from the oven, uncover, and pour the remaining bottle of Caesar Dressing over the top. If you'd prefer not to use foil, cook the chicken in an oven-safe Dutch oven and use the lid to cover.
Bake uncovered for another 10 minutes (if you notice the chicken getting too brown, cover with foil for the remaining cook time), or until the inside of the chicken breasts reaches 170ºF.
*Note: If you can't find vegan parmesan cheese alternative, or if you'd prefer not to use it, you can use regular parmesan cheese, use our vegan parmesan cheese recipe, or substitute nutritional yeast.
