Crock Pot Chicken Caesar Sandwiches

These are a fun change from your typical chicken salad sandwiches. They would be great to serve at a shower or brunch. I like to make them on the weekend then eat leftovers for lunches throughout the week 

recipe from the Girl Who Ate Everything 

2 pounds boneless skinless chicken thighs (I use tenders or breasts) 
1/2 to 1 cup of your favorite Caesar dressing 
1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup fresh chopped parsley (if you don't have fresh use around 2 teaspoons of dried parsley)
1/2 teaspoon ground pepper
2 cups shredded romaine lettuce

slider buns, hamburger buns or croissants 

1. 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.

2. Remove chicken from cooker using a slotted spoon and drain the water from the slow cooker. Shred Chicken 

*TIP: the best way to get perfectly shredded chicken is to throw it in your stand mixer and use the paddle attachment to shred. Saves so much time! 

3. 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. 

4. 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.
