Chicken Caesar Ciabatta Sandwiches

Day 26

I mentioned, in my last blog entry, that I sometimes make Chicken Caesar Sandwiches when the weather is warm. They are delicious anytime, but our family especially enjoys them in the spring and summer. Here’s a simple recipe for delicious sandwiches every time! I hope you like it.

Chicken Caesar Ciabatta Sandwiches


2 long ciabatta rolls
1 cup Creamy Caesar Dressing** (recipe below)
6 large leaves of Romaine lettuce
6 prepared chicken breasts* (recipe below)
1 ½ cups shaved Parmesan cheese

Cut ciabatta rolls to make two large sandwiches. Brush bread with olive oil and sprinkle with salt, pepper, and basil flakes if desired. Place on baking sheet and heat under broiler on lowest oven rack until nicely browned. Remove from oven and place on large cutting board.

Spread all halves of ciabatta generously with Caesar dressing. Place lettuce on the bottom roll for each sandwich. Sprinkle with shaved Parmesan. Slice chicken breasts and place on top of lettuce and cheese. Close sandwiches with ciabatta tops. Serve immediately.
