Step-by-Step Instructions

Prepare the Chicken and Asparagus

  1. Preheat the Oven: Set your oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. Season and Sear the Chicken: Season the chicken breasts with salt and pepper. Heat olive oil in a large oven-safe skillet over medium-high heat and sear the chicken until golden on both sides.
  3. Add Dressing and Cheese: Remove the skillet from heat. Drizzle Caesar dressing over the chicken and sprinkle evenly with Parmesan cheese.


  1. Arrange Asparagus: Arrange the trimmed asparagus around the chicken in the skillet. Sprinkle garlic powder and additional cheese if desired.
  2. Bake: Place the skillet in the oven and bake for 20 minutes, or until the chicken is thoroughly cooked and the asparagus is tender.


  1. Add Finishing Touches: Squeeze fresh lemon juice over the chicken and asparagus before serving for an extra zing.

Customizations and Tips

  • For Picky Eaters: Wrap the asparagus in bacon to make the greens more appealing.
  • Healthier Options: Use a low-fat Caesar dressing or create your own with Greek yogurt.
  • Vegetable Variations: Substitute asparagus with broccoli or green beans if preferred.
  • Extra Crunch: Add croutons during the last few minutes of baking for a salad-like crunch.
  • Boost of Flavor: Toss in halved cherry tomatoes before baking for a burst of sweetness.
