Shredded Chicken Caesar Sandwiches

Noah and Preston loved these sandwiches!  They were so easy (I love easy) and really quite tasty.  They will definitely make many more appearances at our dinner table!

Shredded Chicken Caesar Sandwiches

4-6 chicken breasts (depending on size)
1/2 to 1 cup favorite Caesar dressing (My favorite is Litehouse Caesar.  I don't know why they spell it like that.  When I see the word "lite" it makes me think "lite" in calories and this dressing it is most definitely not, but we can pretend.)
1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup fresh chopped parsley
Salt and pepper to taste
Romaine lettuce

Place chicken in a crockpot with 1 cup of water, cover and cook on low heat for 4-6 hours or until chicken is cooked and shreds easily.

Remove chicken from crockpot and shred with two forks (or fingers).  Place chicken in a large mixing bowl and add dressing, Parmesan cheese, parsley and salt and pepper to taste.  Refrigerate until ready to serve.

Before serving, slice buns in half and spread the cut side of each bun with softened butter.  Place cut side of bun on a preheat skillet or griddle and cook until golden and toasty (Yum!).

Spoon shredded chicken onto the bottom half of each bun, followed by an extra sprinkling of Parmesan cheese and a piece of romaine lettuce.  Cover with the top half of the bun and serve.
