Today’s recipe takes the flavors of a salad and incorporates them into a sandwich. I am a huge Caesar salad fan and was thrilled to try these chicken Caesar salad sandwiches.

I love the flavor of that creamy garlicky dressing paired with that crisp romaine lettuce. Both of those ingredients are part of this sandwich. Soft yet chewy ciabatta bread encases the ingredients instead of crunchy croutons topping them.

This sandwich includes thinly sliced deli chicken along with cheese, tomato, and thinly sliced red onion. All these ingredients come together to make one amazing sandwich.

You can pick up ciabatta rolls from your local bakery. I also love to use the artisan rolls that you can get from Costco. You just need a bread that is hearty enough to not get soggy once you add the Caesar dressing to the sandwich. Baguette bread is another great option.

Slice the rolls and drizzle some Caesar salad dressing on each half of the roll. Just pick your favorite dressing from the salad dressing isle of the grocery store. If you have a homemade recipe you love to make, that would even be better. However, just good bottled dressing from the store works great.

Then, you need some thinly sliced deli chicken. Sometimes you can find it with the deli meats. However, if you can’t find it there, you can get it from the deli counter at the store. I prefer to get it from the deli counter.

You could even use deli turkey if your prefer. Just place the chicken (or turkey) on the bottom half of the roll.

Now, let’s do the toppings. Any good sandwich would include some cheese. I like the flavor of Colby-jack. However, you can always use what you have. Cheddar would also be delicious. Add that on top of the chicken.

Then, you add on some tomato slices, thinly sliced red onion, and a broken up romaine lettuce leaf. Place on the top half of the roll. Then, it’s time to dig in to this chicken sandwich. It’s oh so good!

Can I use leftover cooked chicken for these sandwiches?
Yes, absolutely! Leftover cooked chicken works perfectly in this recipe. Simply shred or slice the cooked chicken. Shredded chicken would work well to toss it with Caesar dressing before assembling the sandwiches.

What type of bread works best for these sandwiches? You can use any type of bread you prefer for these sandwiches. I prefer using ciabatta rolls. French baguettes would also be a great option. Just be sure to choose a bread that can hold up to the hearty filling and won’t become too soggy.

Can I add extra toppings to these sandwiches?
Yes! You can customize your sandwiches by adding toppings like avocado, bacon, or extra Parmesan cheese for extra flavor and texture.
