Slow Cooker Chicken Caesar Sandwiches
Ways to Wellness 6 Week Transformation winner, Jenny Vinck, shares with us one of her favorite recipes.
Recipe from: www.skinnytaste.com
2 pounds boneless skinless chicken thighs or breasts (I used organic Chicken Breasts)
1/2 to 1 cup of your favorite Caesar dressing (I used an organic low fat one from lunds))
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 (100% whole wheat buns)
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.
