A filling sandwich, these feature slow cooked, tender Caesar dressing marinated shredded chicken on pillowy buns with romaine lettuce & shredded Parmesan cheese.

Total Time5 hrs 10 mins
Course: Main Course
Cuisine: American
Servings: 6

Ingredients

  • 2 lbs (about 3-4) boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 1 cup creamy Caesar dressing
  • 1 cup shredded Parmesan cheese, divided
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley, washed and finely chopped
  • pinch red pepper flakes
  • salt & pepper, to taste
  • romaine lettuce leaves, washed and patted dry
  • 6 fluffy hamburger style buns

Instructions

  • Pour the chicken broth into the bowl of your slow cooker, and then add the chicken breasts. Cover, and cook on low for 4-6 hours, or until the chicken's cooked through.
  • Remove the lid and transfer the cooked chicken to a cutting board. Shred using two forks or a pair of meat claws. Empty any liquid from the bowl of the slow cooker, place it back in the insert, and transfer the chicken back to the bowl.
  • Add the dressing, 1/2 the cheese, parsley, pepper flakes, and salt & pepper to taste. You'll want to use twice as much freshly ground black pepper as salt. Stir everything to evenly combine. Cover, and cook another 30-45 minutes on high, stirring at least once.
  • Top the bottoms of each bun with several leaves of lettuce. Add an equal amount of the hot Caesar chicken to each bun, spreading a bit to cover until all the buns are prepped. Sprinkle the remaining cheese evenly out over all the buns. Top all the sandwiches with top buns. Serve immediately.
  • Like any sandwich, you can really serve these with whatever you want. We tend to serve them with a handful of potato chips and fresh fruit salad.
