Take 4-5 frozen Costco chicken breasts. Put in a large pot of water and boil them for 20 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through. Place warm chicken out on a cutting board and remove fat, veins, and any "undesirables" you might find. Shred the meat with two forks OR if you want to get tricky try my newest find which is to shred the chicken in the kitchenaid mixer.
This works best if the chicken is still warm. After that, dump meat into a crockpot and add the rest of the ingredients:
1 Cup (or more) of your favorite Caesar dressing
1/2 cup - 1 cup of Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup fresh chopped parsley (or 2 teaspoons dry parsley)
Salt and Pepper to taste (I used Johhny's season salt and some shakes of pepper
The key here is texture. Depending on how much meat you use, you want the dressing and other ingredients to be on the moist side. If it looks dry, add a bit more dressing. I have been known to add a few spoonfuls of sour cream near the end to give extra moisture and sometimes help cut the "spicy" aspects of Caesar dressing. After that warm it in your crock pot until it is heated through and time to serve.
2 cups shredded romaine lettuce
You can just have a big bag of slider buns laying next to your crock pot for big gatherings, or I have found on nights when it's just us, that toasting and then buttering the slider rolls take the flavor up a notch.
Spoon some warm chicken Caesar mixture onto a toasted slider bun and top with cool crisp shreds of romaine lettuce. The only trouble you will have with these tasty little babies is only eating one. Sliders, by law, means you can have as many as these adorable sammies as you want with no added calories whatsoever. Also the fact that this was formally a salad makes it "healthy" in my book.
