Want to zest up your plain baked chicken meals without adding too many points? This caesar baked chicken recipe is simple to make and so flavorful, it pairs really nicely with a caesar salad. Believe it or not, I had no bacon on hand when I created this recipe but if I had I definitely would sprinkle some crumbled bacon on top. Makes 4 servings at 4SP on blue & purple program, 7SP on green program.
