Chicken Caesar Ciabatta Sandwiches

You won’t believe how easy it is to make caesar dressing from scratch. And it tastes 1000x better too!

I’ve been on a sandwich kick lately, mainly because it’s so easy to make, it’s perfect lunch food without giving you food coma and it’s entirely customizable. That’s how I created the Egg Salad BLTA Sandwich. But with this chicken caesar salad sandwich, no customization/adaption was needed. The recipe is absolutely perfect as is.

The caesar dressing was wonderfully creamy with that refreshing hint of tanginess. And the toasted ciabatta bread was the perfect type of bread for this sandwich, giving you such a wonderful crunch and softness in every bite. The only teeny tiny change that I made was that I also tossed the romaine lettuce leaves in the caesar dressing, which ends up giving you a double dose of creamy caesar goodness.

Jason, who I’ve never seen eat a caesar salad in the span of the 3 1/2 yrs that we’ve been together, devoured this sandwich like there was no tomorrow. You can’t beat that!

So here’s how you make this:

Let’s first start with the caesar dressing. We’ll combine the anchovies, garlic, mayonnaise, lemon juice, Worcestershire, salt and pepper, to taste. If the dressing is too thick, add a little bit of water to thin it out.

Then let’s take some fresh romaine lettuce leaves and give it a good toss with a bit of the dressing we just made.

Next we’ll cook up some chicken breast in a skillet. I like to get the thin sliced ones from Trader Joe’s since they cook up real fast, about 3-4 minutes.

Once the chicken is cooked through, let it rest for about 5 minutes before you slice it across the grain.

And finally, toast up some ciabatta bread, slather on some of that awesome caesar dressing, add the romaine lettuce, sliced chicken, shaved Parmesan and an extra drizzle of caesar.
