Slow Cooker Chicken Caesar Sandwiches

Slow Cooker Chicken Caesar Sandwiches

2 lbs. boneless, skinless chicken breasts (You can also use thighs if you prefer.)

1 bottle (12-ounces) favorite Caesar dressing
1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
1/2 tsp. ground pepper
2 cups shredded Romaine lettuce
8 hamburger buns, toasted


Without adding any liquid or spices, place chicken in a 3-4 quart slow cooker.  (I put mine in frozen.)  Cover and cook on LOW heat for 6-7 hours. 

Drain any accumulated liquid from slow cooker and shred chicken with a sturdy spoon or fork.  Pour in 1/2 bottle of dressing, Parmesan cheese and pepper.  Stir together until evenly mixed.  Continue to add dressing until desired moistness level has been reached (for me it was about 3/4 bottle). 

Cover and cook on HIGH for 20-30 minutes or until mixture is hot.  Toast the buns, if desired.  Spoon 1/4 cup chicken mixture over toasted buns.  Add lettuce.  Serve immediately.  

UPDATE:  If we make this again I will not use any more than half the bottle of dressing or I'd use more chicken.  They were good, but the flavor was over-powering.  I might also add a few stalks of chopped celery into the mixture.  I think that'd give it a nice crunchy texture to the chicken.  Overall, this was very good.
