Easy Chicken Caesar Sandwiches

This is basically the easiest recipe in the whole world, and these chicken caesar sandwiches are so delicious!

I love that this is basically the easiest recipe in the whole world. Lately I am just too tired to do much cooking most nights, and so I am depending on super easy recipes to get me through. I’ve seen those slow cooker chicken caesar sandwiches all over Pinterest for a long time, but the problem with them is that I just don’t love the texture of chicken cooked in the slow cooker. The chicken doesn’t even cook with the caesar dressing anyway, so it occurred to me that I could just add the caesar dressing to some rotisserie chicken and have some delicious sandwiches with basically no work on my part. Score! I know some of you purists are going to scoff at this “recipe” since it’s not really a recipe at all, but these sandwiches are too darn delicious not to share! You could definitely make your own caesar dressing if you want to (I think the dressing from these wraps would be delicious here) but if you’re like me and have zero time and need something tasty, buy the bottled dressing and try these sandwiches!

Ingredients

For the sandwiches:

  • 2 cups chopped rotisserie chicken
  • 1/2 cup Brianna’s Asiago Caesar Dressing
  • 2 cups chopped romaine lettuce
  • 2 sliced tomatoes
  • 4 sandwich buns I used these pretzel rolls

For the pretzel sandwich buns:

  • 1/2 tablespoon yeast
  • 1 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 cup warm milk
  • 3/4 cup warm water
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 1/4 – 4 cups flour
  • 3 quarts water
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/4 cup baking soda
  • coarse salt for sprinkling

Instructions

For the pretzel sandwich buns:

  • In a large bowl or the bowl of a stand mixer, mix together the yeast, oil, milk, and water. Let sit about five minutes, until the yeast is starting to bubble. Mix in the salt and 2 cups of the flour. Add additional flour, 1/4 cup at a time, until a soft dough forms that does not stick to your finger when lightly tapped. Cover and let rise one hour, until doubled.
  • When the dough has risen, gently punch the dough down and divide into 12 equal sized pieces (mine were exactly 3 ounces each). Shape each piece of dough into a ball and place on a greased cookie sheet or greased countertop to rise. Cover and let rise one hour.
  • When the dough has nearly finished rising, preheat the oven to 425. Heat the water, sugar, and soda to boiling in a large pot. Add the pieces of dough to the pot, 2-3 at a time, and boil 1-2 minutes on each side. Place the boiled pieces of dough on a greased baking sheet and sprinkle with coarse salt. Make 2 gashes on the top of each piece of dough with a sharp knife. Bake 20-22 minutes, or until deep golden brown.

For the sandwich assembly:

  • Mix the chicken with the caesar dressing in a microwave safe bowl, and heat until cooked through. Assemble the sandwiches on the buns and enjoy!
