Chicken Caesar Sandwiches

I love slow cooker sandwiches on busy days.  They take no time whatsoever and taste great!  I've made these no less than 4 times this month, and believe me, that's a new record at our house.  My kiddos usually complain if we have the same thing twice in a month.

I also made this to take to a friend who recently had twin boys.  She said, and I quote, "Those sandwiches were to DIE for!"  I'm assuming that means they were good.  ;)  It also means that that you need to pull out your slow cooker and try these babies!

Slow Cooker Chicken Caesar Sandwiches
Serves about 4-6

2 pounds boneless skinless chicken 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
12 slider buns or 4-6 regular sized hamburger 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. I really make sure that I discard any fat pieces so by the time I was done I only used about 1/2 cup of dressing but you make need more if you have more chicken. 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.
