This recipe is awesome for football nights–it makes awesome sandwiches that can be eaten on the couch in front of the game. I got this recipe from the lovely Kristy at Sweet Treats & More, who adapted it from Betty Crocker. It’s totally delish and really different than most slow cooker meals–Kristy knows what she’s doing, y’all! It was so good that I forgot to take a picture of it. I think I inhaled it rather than actually chewing…whoops! Anyway, this picture comes from Sweet Treats & More. I’ll post an update with my photo next time I make this. We had plenty of leftovers and the recipe listed below made us 5 gluten-free sandwiches (the Udi’s bread I use is on the smaller side) and 2 salads topped with chicken. That’s a ton of bang for your buck!
Slow Cooker Chicken Caesar Sandwiches
- 2 pounds boneless skinless chicken thighs
- 1 bottle of your favorite Caesar Dressing (I used Brianna’s Asiago Caesar)
- 1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
- 1/4 cup fresh chopped parsley
- 1/2 teaspoon ground pepper
- 2 cups shredded romaine lettuce
- Buns or bread
IN THE BAG: Chicken. In a smaller bag within larger bag include parsley, cheese, salt, and pepper.
TO COOK: Place chicken in a slow cooker, cover and cook on low heat for 6-7 hours. Remove chicken from cooker using a slotted spoon. Place on a cutting board and pull chicken into shreds. Place chicken back in the cooker and pour dressing, Parmesan cheese, parsley, and pepper over the top. Stir until mixed evenly. Cover and cook on high heat for 30-35 minutes or until mixture is hot. Serve on top of salad or as sandwich filling with potato chips and a side salad.
