Cesar chicken.. with a twist.

Maybe you've seen my Ranch Chicken thighs recipe, they're so good, moist, tender and full of flavor.. I was planning on making those for dinner last night when it hit me that I didn't have any ranch.. shoot.. I panicked just a teeny bit before I saw it.. I didn't even know I had any left.. Ken's Light Creamy Cesar.. whoopee!! Hmm.. Cesar chicken thighs.. Oh yeah baby..

What resulted was holy cow amazingly moist chicken with an absolutely outstanding crust.. I think I'm gonna try with creamy Italian next time.. this was so good! I love Chicken cesar salad, wraps.. Pizza (Don't knock it 'till ya try it). I served these with Smashed Potatoes and it was Delicious!

Cesar Chicken Thighs


  • 1/2 cup dry breadcrumb
  • 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons yellow cornmeal
  • 6 chicken thighs (skin removed)
  • 1/2 cup bottled Creamy Cesar dressing


  1. In a shallow bowl, combine crumbs, Parmesan cheese, cornmeal, and Italian seasoning.
  2. Dip chicken into salad dressing, then coat with crumb mixture.
  3. Place chicken in a greased 13x9 baking dish.
  4. Bake, uncovered, at 375 degrees for 45 minutes or until juices run clear.

Interesting - I rarely coat my chicken parts with breadcrumbs (don't want the carbs), but with the dressing I'll bet it would be worth it! Thanks for the idea!
