So I had over 100 visitors today on my very first day!! Woot! Woot! And.... if you are new....Welcome to my Blog! I'd love it if you would click on 'follow' to become a follower and share this site with all of your friends and family! Enjoy! Hope everybody is ready for this one!
These are soooooo good and not the same old thing! My inspiration on these came from the fact that my kids only eat 'Caesar Salad' when it comes to salad, so we have it 5 or so times a week it seems. I HAD to find a new twist for this soooooo..... picture this....the bread is the croutons and everything else fits in between! My husband and I just add a couple things on OUR half!
Preparation Time: About 15 minutes (not bad for dinner!)
Cook Time: 35-40 minutes (the chicken in the oven is most of it...could do it ahead??)
Number of Servings: 4
2 - tablespoons of Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Salt (I use Sea Salt)
Pepper (I use freshly ground because it makes a difference in the taste)
1 - Ciabatta bread loaf (our local store sells it in an approx 11x7 loaf so that's what i use)
Pam cooking spray
1 - whole garlic clove (peeled)
1/2 - cup of Lite Caesar Dressing
Romaine Lettuce (about 3 full leaves)
1/2 - cup Parmesan Cheese (I use shredded or shaved, whatever is on sale)
8 slices - Canadian Bacon (fully cooked)
1/4 - cup Sun dried tomato (My husband doesn't like tomatoes but he likes these!)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Spray cooking sheet with Pam cooking spray (I use tin foil first to help with clean up)
Place all three chicken breasts onto prepared sheet
Drizzle your Extra Virgin Olive Oil over the chicken
Sprinkle with Salt and Pepper
Bake for 35-40 minutes or until cooked through, set aside to cool
Slice into about 3 thick slices length wise to make a thick deli like slice of chicken breast
Cut Ciabatta bread loaf in half length wise like a sandwich
Place both halves of the Ciabatta bread open side facing up on a cookie sheet
Lightly spray each with Pam cooking spray
Place in oven (already heated at 350 degrees) for 3-5 minutes or until lightly toasted
Cut one tip off of garlic clove and rub the open end of garlic on the open face of each bread half
Spread half of your Lite Caesar Dressing on each half of bread
Start building your sandwich by placing your slices of chicken breast on the bottom half
Sprinkle your Parmesan evenly over the chicken
Place your Romaine Lettuce on top of your Chicken
Then....if you want...here's the part where we only put it on our half...
Place the 8 slices of Canadian Bacon evenly on top of the lettuce
Spread out your sun dried tomatoes evenly on top of your Canadian Bacon
Finish off your sandwich with the top half of your bread
Cut into fourths to make four sandwiches
Ooooooo La Laaa! Your Done! Enjoy your Chicken Caesar Salad Sandwich!
Remember to turn off your oven too....I always forget and my husband has to come in and ask "Honey....are you done with the oven?"
