Day 159 – Slow Cooker Chicken Ceasar Sandwiches


It has been so hot these past few days that the last thing I wanted to do was turn on the oven and heat up the house. It has even been too hot to grill. Even though we usually only think of it in the fall and winter, the Crock Pot is great for a hot summer day. I pulled up this recipe and decided to give it a shot.


2 pounds boneless skinless chicken thighs (I used chicken breasts instead.)
1 bottle of your favorite Caesar Dressing (I use Ken’s Light Caesar) OR 1 (10 oz) can cream of chicken soup plus one packet Caesar Dressing mix
1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup fresh chopped parsley
1/2 teaspoon ground pepper
2 cups shredded romaine lettuce
12 french hamburger buns or buns of your choice


1.  Place chicken in a 3-4 quart slow cooker, cover and cook on low heat for 6-7 hours. Yes, you are supposed to cook the chicken with nothing else in there. I have had bad experiences cooking chicken with not enough liquid, so I didn’t do this. I put the chicken in with the bottle of dressing. You can decide which route you would like to take.
2.  Remove chicken from cooker using a slotted spoon.  Place on a cutting board and pull chicken apart.
3.  Place chicken back in the cooker and pour dressing (or cream of chicken plus dressing packet) if you haven’t yet, 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.
4.  Spoon 1/4 cup mixture onto lettuce in each bun and serve.

These were a hit! The chicken was so moist and flavorful. If you have never used the Ken’s Light Caesar dressing before, I would definitely recommend it. It was perfect for this recipe.

  1. Was 2 lbs really enough for 12 servings? That’s only about 3 chicken breasts, so it doesn’t seem like much. I’m making a meal for a new mom and her family, and I wanted to make enough food for our family too. I’m thinking I should double the recipe?

  2. No, I definitely didn’t have enough for 12 servings. I would say you should double the recipe if you want to feed that many. This is a great meal idea for a new mom!

  3. This is in the crockpot now. Holding dressing till end, I just have chicken, 2 Tbsps of water, 1 Tbsp garlic oil! We are excited!!! I learned from a Wildtree consultant to put 1 Tbsp of water in for every pound of meat it you want moist meat that isn’t soupy!!! I will update you on outcome and everyone’s reactions. This and several other recipes are pinned to try!!
