"This was really yummy! Especially if you like avocados. I added more avocado, and therefore, more Caesar dressing to make it nice and creamy and to cover the chicken breasts really well. Easy and yummy."

"I might try using asparagus when baking & adding the avocado after it comes out of the oven."

"<p>The recipe sounded good except for the avocados but I followed the recipe and it turned out very good. The best part is there is little prep time. Perfect for a week night. Serve with rice and dinner is served.</p>"

"Wow - this was so simple and so yummy. I couldn't find fat-free casesar salad dressing, so I used "light". The avocados and the dressing give the chicken a smooth and creamy flavor. Perfect for guests (if they like avocados)."
