  • For the Chicken:
    • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
    • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
    • 2 tablespoons olive oil
    • 1 tablespoon butter
  • For the Sauce:
    • 1/2 cup Caesar dressing (store-bought or homemade)
    • 1/4 cup chicken broth
    • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
    • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
    • 2 cloves garlic, minced
    • 1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
    • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional)
  • For the Asparagus:
    • 1 pound asparagus, trimmed
    • 1 tablespoon olive oil
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt
    • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper


  1. Prepare the Chicken:
    • In a shallow dish, combine the flour, salt, and pepper.
    • Dredge the chicken breasts in the flour mixture, shaking off any excess.
    • Heat the olive oil and butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
    • Add the chicken breasts and cook until golden brown and cooked through, about 5-6 minutes per side. Remove the chicken from the skillet and set aside.
  2. Prepare the Sauce:
    • In the same skillet, add the minced garlic and cook for about 30 seconds until fragrant.
    • Add the Caesar dressing, chicken broth, Parmesan cheese, lemon juice, Dijon mustard, and red pepper flakes (if using).
    • Stir to combine and let the sauce simmer for about 2-3 minutes until slightly thickened.
  3. Cook the Asparagus:
    • While the sauce is simmering, prepare the asparagus.
    • Toss the asparagus with olive oil, salt, and pepper.
    • In another skillet or the same one after removing the chicken, add the asparagus and cook over medium-high heat until tender, about 4-5 minutes.
  4. Combine and Serve:
    • Return the chicken breasts to the skillet with the sauce, turning to coat them in the sauce.
    • Serve the chicken topped with the sauce, alongside the asparagus.
    • Optionally, garnish with additional grated Parmesan and a sprinkle of fresh parsley or basil.


  • For an extra burst of flavor, marinate the chicken breasts in a bit of the Caesar dressing for 30 minutes before dredging in flour.
  • If you prefer a thicker sauce, allow it to simmer a bit longer until it reaches your desired consistency.
  • Pair this dish with a side of rice or mashed potatoes to soak up the delicious sauce.

Enjoy this delectable Caesar Chicken with Asparagus, a meal that is both simple to prepare and satisfyingly rich in flavor!
