I try to make a sandwich type meal once a week. In the winter it is sometimes served with a soup and in the warmer weather, we usually have a salad with it. This sandwich is a take on the every popular Caesar salad, which is simply delish. I love to make my meals early in the day and “forget” about it while it cooks in the crock-pot. REALLY this IS an easy one…..
* I doubled this for my family and got about 8 buns worth of meat. We, well…. my men…not me, are BIG sauce eaters ~ SO I used 3/4 a bottle of Caesar dressing for my 4 chicken (LARGE ones) breasts.
* My husband took the leftovers in his lunch the next day. He said they are better hot but still good cold too.
* The original recipe called for 2 lb. chicken. That to me seems NOT right to I changed it to 2 chicken breasts. The original also said served 4-6 buns. I would say more like 3-4. Just my opinions. You can see the orignal recipe here at Chefs in Training. The following is the recipe with my changes.
Here is the delicious filling……
Slow Cooked Chicken Caesar Sandwiches
2 boneless skinless chicken breasts
1/2-1 c. Caesar dressing
1/2 c. shredded parmesan cheese
2 tsp. dried parsley (don’t need to double….unless you want too!)
1/2 tsp. pepper
2 c. Romaine lettuce, shredded
Roma tomatoes, sliced (my addition….)
Put chicken in the crock-pot with 1-2 c. water. Cover and cook on low for 4-6 hours. Shred the chicken and disguard the juices. Put chicken back in and add the dressing, cheese, parsley and pepper. Cover and heat 30 minutes or so till nice and hot. Serve on buns with lettuce. (We like with tomatoes too!) Top with extra Parmesan cheese. This is good! ENJOY!

Just a silly…..Anyone who knows me knows that I am NOT a HUGE meat eater…not that I am against it, I am just a sides kinda girl. I took this shot of my sandwich, my “pac-man”- sandwich….. Please excuse the rather said looking lettuce…..The sandwich from above was Aaron’s that he so kindly let me take a picture of.
