Mellow Monday: Chicken Caesar Sandwiches

Yet another successful weekend!  A yard sale on Saturday morning and 1/2 Marathon completed on Sunday morning.  With such a crazy, yet successful weekend, a Mellow Monday is extremely needed.  Today, I'll be catching up on laundry, kitchen duties and a nap!  All this while enjoying the smell coming from my slow cooker.

This recipe caught my eye a couple of weeks ago from The Girl Who Ate Everything.  Since then, I've really been looking forward to making it.  The best part is, it can also be lunch for the next couple of days.

Chicken Caesar Sandwiches
  • 2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts 
  • 1/2 to 1 cup of your favorite Caesar dressing (We are using Ken's Creamy Ceasar)
  • 1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup fresh chopped parsley or 2 teaspoons of dried parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground pepper
  • 2 cups shredded romaine lettuce
  • 12 slider buns or 4-6 regular sized hamburger buns (We're using Italian rolls)

Place chicken in a 3-4 quart slow cooker with 1-2 cups of water, cover and cook on low heat for 4-6 hours.  Remove chicken from cooker using a slotted spoon and drain the water from the slow cooker. Place chicken on a cutting board and pull chicken into shreds, discarding any fat.  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 minutes or until mixture is hot.  Spoon 1/4 cup mixture onto each slider bun if you are making sliders or more for regular sized buns. Top with extra shredded Parmesan cheese and lettuce to serve.

Enjoy your Mellow Monday!

P.S.  I finished the California Classic 1/2 Marathon!  It was a great experience and the route was a lot of fun.  Here are some pictures from the event.

Just about half done

Only 1.1 miles left!

We got to run through the zoo.

Just as you finish up, down the 1st baseline, to homeplate!
