For the Kids Preheat oven to 400°F. Set an oiled rack on a small baking sheet lined with foil. Remove skin from chicken thighs and drumsticks by grasping one corner firmly with a piece of paper towel and pulling.
Brush thighs and drumsticks with Caesar dressing, coating all sides. Spread crumbs out in a shallow dish. Roll chicken in crumbs to coat, pressing so they adhere to chicken.
Place chicken on prepared rack. Bake, uncovered, in bottom third of oven for 30 to 35 minues, turning over after 25 minutes until juices are no longer pink when thickest part of chicken is pierced with a slim knife.
For the Grown-Ups With your fingers, loosen skin of chicken breasts. Slip a lemon slice under each. In a small bowl, stir together cream cheese, tomatoes, garlic and pepper. Spread cheese mixture under breast skin over lemon slices. Put breasts skin-side upin a dish just large enough to hold them.
In a small bowl, stir together oil, Italian herb seasoning, salt and paprika. Drizzle mixture evenly over each breast. Bake, uncovered, on top rack fo oven for 40 to 45 mintues, until juices run clear when thickest part of breast is pierced with a slim knife, spooning juices over breasts after 25 mintues.
