Slow Cooker Chicken Caesar sandwich with just a few ingredients.Slow Cooker Chicken Caesar Sandwiches are another in the ever growing list of slow cooker sandwiches that are on the site. I know it seems like we’ve been barreling through these sort of quickly, but I have to say they are changing the way we eat here at home.

I’ve been in charge of lunch prep for my husband since we started dating over 10 years ago and I have always hated either having to be creative or having to resort to deli meat. Then when I was pregnant for the first time I learned about something called nitrates and nitrites. ?

So, after reading some horrible accompanying material about how they can be bad I started buying nitrate/nitrite free deli meats. But that still didn’t make lunches any more exciting. Slow Cooker Chicken Caesar Sandwiches made with easy homemade caesar dressing, Parmesan Cheese and a buttery hamburger bun.

Since jumping on the slow cooker sandwich train my husband (I don’t need to pack lunches for myself ?) has been infinitely happier. I’ve got 8 or 10 lists of the best sandwiches ever and I am working on as many as I possibly can through slow cookers. I’ve had a couple of hiccups along the way. A banh mi and a cuban version that didn’t make the cut (still working towards those), but aside from those we’ve all been thrilled with the new sandwiches.

These Slow Cooker Chicken Caesar Sandwiches are among the easiest on the list, but they’re so incredibly delicious. Since the filling is all mixed you can even pack it separately from your bread to avoid soggy bread.

Slow Cooker Chicken Caesar sandwich ingredients

If you would like to use a homemade dressing instead of the bottled variety, this is my go to *EASY* Caesar Dressing:

Caesar Dressing:

  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 teaspoon Worcestershire
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan Cheese
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
Simply mix together the ingredients and let sit for about 15 minutes. If you’re making this recipe it would be even better for the flavor if you made it when  you put the chicken in the slow cooker and then let it sit in the fridge until the chicken was done cooking.

Tools Used in the Making of These Slow Cooker Chicken Caesar Sandwiches:
Slow Cooker: Love this slow cooker and how programmable it is, it has been a workhorse for me… until…
My New Slow Cooker: This recipe was made in this slow cooker. For larger roasts I also brown the meat in the insert and not lose a bunch of the flavor by transferring the meat and leaving the browned bits behind. If you’re thinking of a new slow cooker, consider it if your budget is open.
Caesar Dressing: I’m a huge fan of this dressing, but it is refrigerated. So If you are looking for a shelf stable option I would recommend Ken’s but I always add a bit more Parmesan and a bit more black pepper when I use that one.

  1. I’m so excited to try this, I’m actually going to try this with a rotisserie chicken I bought and adding some spinach leave. I will come back with an update

  2. This is the most amazing recipe! We have it every month! I use Ken’s Steakhouse Creamy Caesar instead of making my own. Absolutely delicious and leftovers are just as yummy!
    My kids eat it on potato buns and I layer it on top of fresh spinach. Delicious!

    1. No need to add any liquid in the slow cooker while the chicken cooks. The fat from the skin will render down and allow the chicken to stay moist. Enjoy!

    1. I hesitate to say yes because they tend to dry out very quickly in the slow cooker. My suggestion would be to at least use skin on as that will help keep it moist.

  3. QUESTION: Looks delicious. But can I use boneless skinless thighs and then I can skip the “take the bone and skin” off the chicken step? And perhaps use my electric fry pan instead of slow cooker???

  4. Your slow cooker sandwiches are always killer! And I’d much rather one of these than a regular deli sandwich. And I know that my husband, who’s a giant Caesar fan, will flip over these sandwiches!
