Slow Cooker Chicken Caesar Sandwiches

2-4 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts (depending on how many people you are serving)
Enough water to almost cover the chicken in the crock pot
2 bottles of caesar dressing (one creamy caesar, one regular caesar…I use Ken’s Lite brand because I think it has the most flavor for the fewest calories)
2 cups shredded romaine lettuce
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
Hamburger buns

Put the chicken breasts in the slow cooker. Pour in enough water to almost cover them and cook on low for 5-6 hours. Remove the chicken and shred it. Pour the liquid out of the slow cooker. Place the chicken back in the slow cooker. Add the Parmesan, half the bottle of creamy caesar and half the bottle of regular caesar if you are using 2-3 pounds of chicken. Pour in the whole bottles if you’re using 4 or more pounds. Add the romaine lettuce. (This step is optional. I like warm wilted romaine, but if you would rather have it cool and crisp, save it for the sandwich. Or you can use it both ways, like I do.) Mix together, bump up the temperature to high, and let everything warm through for 30-40 minutes. Salt and pepper to taste. Toast the hamburger buns if you like, top with the chicken caesar mixture and some un-wilted romaine, and enjoy!
