Chicken Caesar Sandwich

Crock Pot Chicken Caesar Sandwiches

You probably already know I love my crockpot. With 5 busy teenagers to cook for, the crockpot comes in pretty handy. We love slow cooking meat, it keeps it moist and usually it just melts in your mouth. Plus my crock pot keeps the kitchen cooler! 

When I cook chicken in my crock pot, I have a tendency to just dump some “saucy” ingredient in there with the chicken. Sometimes it’s a “cream of” something soup, sometimes it’s salad dressing. Ever tried a bottle of ranch dressing? AMAZING!

These suggestions are a great way to get a quick and easy dinner. Simply serve over pasta or rice and you have a fast dinner for a busy night.

After trying ranch dressing a number of times we expanded to include honey mustard dressing and then Italian and then other delicious dressings.

Change it up for different sandwiches every time.

Eventually we landed on Creamy Caesar Dressing and I was sold. The pairing makes great Crock Pot Chicken Caesar Sandwiches.

Shred the chicken up before serving and you can put it right on a bun and serve great sandwiches anytime of year. Delicious.

We haven’t made it in awhile and when I saw my friend Jen’s post for her Chicken Caesar Sandwiches, which are a bit more elaborate than mine, I decided I wanted to try her version, and try them I did.

They were absolutely fantastic. And her recipe uses the crock pot too!

Crock Pot Chicken Caesar Sandwiches

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 6 hours 30 minutes
Total Time: 6 hours 45 minutes

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds of boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1½ cups of creamy caesar salad dressing
  • ¾ cup grated Parmesan
  • 2 teaspoon dried parsley, we used fresh because that’s what I had
  • 1 Tablespoon of garlic powder, I used more than what she used, I really love garlic
  • 1 teaspoon of black pepper
  • Lettuce
  • Tomato
  • Hamburger buns

Instructions

  1. Put the chicken breasts in your crockpot with about a cup of water. Put the lid on and cook for 4-6 hours, or until the meat can be shredded.
  2. Remove the chicken from the crock pot and drain the liquid. Shred the chicken and then return it to the crock pot.
  3. Toss the chicken with the creamy caesar dressing, parmesan, parsley, garlic powder and pepper. Taste and see if you want more of anything. We started with Jen’s numbers and used quite a bit more, but that’s cause I love garlic and pepper. Yes. I do.
  4. Once everything is all mixed together, cover it again with a lid and cook for 30 minutes or until everything is nice and hot.
  5. We served it hot on a bun with tomato and lettuce and a side of fresh veggies sticks and some baked chips. FANTASTIC!

They were delicious and the leftovers were just as amazing. They weren't much but I saved enough to have lunch the next day and yes, SO good!

Hi Have you ever made this with fresh garlic instead of the powder? They look fantastic.

This is the first time I have ever made it this way at all. I usually just throw in the dressing WITH the chicken and that's it. I would think that fresh garlic would work just fine. I love fresh garlic.
