Slow Cooker Chicken Caesar Salad Sandwiches

by Laura

This quick meal week ends with a salad turned sandwich.  This has all the elements a a chicken caesar salad but transformed into a savory hot sandwich.  The crunch you normal get from the croutons comes from the toasted roll.  The dressing and Parmesan cheese is tossed with hot shredded chicken and placed on the toasty roll with a piece of romaine.  Love it!

Made this for dinner tonight (added some red onions)…YUM!! So easy to prepare. It was a perfect light weekday meal. This will easily become a regular in our house.
BTW, I’ve made a handful of dinners following your recipes since I’ve discovered your blog on Pinterest and we’ve loved every one so far!!! Thanks for sharing.
