I love rice and so does my husband. We try to find different ways to prepare and enjoy this wonderful food. Through time, we found hundreds of recipes, some simple and some exotic, and have enjoyed preparing them. We've found some real winners, which I have published on this blog and some that are not so great, which are in my personal "do not" repeat folder. I have created this site to share those memorable dishes - which are all about this wonderful food called "rice".

Ceasar Chicken

I made this for a family friend's birthday party to celebrate his 90th birthday.  It was a hit and so easy to make (especially for 52 people).  The recipe below is for four servings.  The number of ingredients is pretty low, which makes it super easy to fix.  Using your  favorite brand of ceasar dressing.  Make sure it is not the creamy version.

4 skinless chicken breasts
1/2 cup chicken broth
1/2 cup Ceasar dressing
1 cup canned tomatoes (chopped or diced)
4 strips of crisp bacon (chopped)
2 tblsp fresh parley (chopped)
2 tblsp fresh basil (chopped)
2 tblsp canola or olive oil
Pepper to taste

Pat chicken breast with a paper towel to remove any moisture.  In a deep fry pan, heat the oil.  Fry chicken breasts until brown on each side, approximately 5-7 minutes per side.  Do not crowd the chicken.  Add  chicken stock and ceasar dressing. Reduce heat to medium and continue cooking for 4 minutes.  Stir in tomatoes and season with pepper.  Turn chicken breasts over and continue to cook for 2 minutes.  Add the the fresh parsley and basil and cook for another 2 minutes.  There should be enough sodium in the dressing and chicken broth not to need salt.  Remove from heat and season to taste.  Serve with  a salad and your favorite rice pilauf.
