Chicken Caesar Florentine Recipe

Chicken Caesar Florentine Recipe

I adapted this dish from my favorite chicken Caesar salad recipe. It has many of the same ingredients as the salad: croutons, grated Parmesan, chicken, and creamy Caesar dressing. This makes the perfect comforting meal on a busy weeknight. —Joyce Conway, Westerville, Ohio
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 40 min. YIELD:4 servings


  • 2 cups grated Parmesan cheese, divided
  • 2 cups Caesar salad croutons, coarsely crushed, divided
  • 1 cup fresh baby spinach
  • 1 cup creamy Caesar salad dressing, divided
  • 4 bone-in chicken breast halves, skin removed (8 ounces each)


  • 1. Preheat oven to 375°. In a large bowl, combine 1 cup cheese, 1 cup crushed croutons, spinach and 1/2 cup salad dressing. Cut a pocket in the thickest part of each chicken breast; fill with cheese mixture.
  • 2. Place remaining dressing and crushed croutons in separate shallow bowls. Dip chicken in dressing, then roll in croutons.
  • 3. Transfer to a greased 13x9-in. baking dish. Bake, uncovered, 30 minutes. Sprinkle with remaining cheese; bake 10-15 minutes longer or until a thermometer reads 170°. Yield: 4 servings.

"Very moist and flavorful. By all means, to ensure cooking chicken through, fold the chicken breast in half, don't roll it! When folded in half, toothpicks are not necessary. I also flattened the breast as well before stuffing."

"I pounded the chicken flat and then stuffed it with the mixture, and it turned out incredible!"

"This was a very tasty dish. Easy to prepare and not too much time involved. Am adding it to my recipe book, very glad I found it in the Dec/Jan magazine. I also enjoyed the sweet sour green beans that accompanied it."

"I'm never good at stuffy chicken but I used halves and rolled instead fastening with a tootpick. Didn't look as pretty but sure tasted fantastic!!"
