It is really starting to warm up here in Utah, which always puts me on the hunt for yummy slow cooker meals that won't heat my whole house up. This one was a definite hit with my family. It was a breeze to throw together without sacrificing any flavor. And if you want to, you could even skip the slow cooker and use a rotisserie chicken and it would be equally easy and yummy!
I've also served it at a few baby showers on little slider buns and had great reviews. My kids won't always eat sandwiches--usually they deconstruct them and eat all the components separately, but this was a sandwich they actually ate in sandwich form. I love simple "set it and forget it" meals. It would also make a great take-in meal for a new mom or someone in need.
Chicken Caesar Sandwiches
2 pounds boneless skinless chicken thighs
1/2 to 1 cup of your favorite Caesar dressing
1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese, plus more for sprinkling
1/4 cup fresh chopped parsley (if you don't have fresh use 2 teaspoons of dried parsley)
1/2 teaspoon ground pepper
2 cups shredded romaine lettuce
12 slider buns or 6 regular sized buns or rolls (I served them on these rolls)
Place chicken in slow cooker and season with salt and pepper. Cover and cook on low for 4-6 hours. Remove chicken from cooker and drain any excess juices/water. Using two forks, shred chicken, discarding any fat.
Return shredded chicken to the crock pot and add dressing, Parmesan cheese, parsley, and pepper over the top. Stir until combined. Cover and cook on high for 30 minutes or until hot.
Toast buns, if desired. Spoon mixture onto buns and top with additional Parmesan cheese and shredded romaine.
Lu and I both really like Brianna’s Asiago Caesar dressing.
