Chicken Caesar Salad is basically the only salad I will eat. Not happily, but I will eat it. I feel like a rabbit while doing so, but hey, that's the price you pay to be healthy-ish, right? Not to mention, rabbits don't eat chickens. Probably not. Now there's an image. :D Imagine a rabbit chasing a chicken for it's dinner. Hilarious.
Anyways, the thing is, when I pack it for lunch, I'm never satisfied. I am just not cut out to be a salad eater. Not really. Sigh. It's sad. Then, I read somewhere of putting chicken salads into sandwich form. Well, that sounds kinda tasty. I didn't use to be such a huge fan of sandwiches, but I've grown into them. There's so much you can do with them. :D And they're simple to do too. So here we go :D
What you need:
Roasted chicken, shredded
Your favourite Caesar salad dressing
Lettuce (I used romaine lettuce)
Sandwich rolls (wholewheat ones are healthier and tasty too :D)
What you do:
- In a small frying pan, fry the chicken in just a little bit of oil until slightly browned.
- Add in the salad dressing and heat until the sauce is thickened and coats the chicken nicely,
- Pile onto the sandwich buns and top with shredded lettuce. Add in a little bit of cheese, if you want. Shhh. Go on. I won't tell.
- Enjoy hot, or cold. :)
And that's it. Of course, the pure salad form is far healthier since it has more lettuce in it, but meh. Still. These were tasty. I love Caesar salad dressing. It's garlicky a little, and just a bit cheesy. Delicious. Having it with the chicken, in sandwich form... was delicious. Problem with the salad is that, unless you drown the lettuce in dressing, you can't really have *all* the lettuce covered in dressing. That would defeat the purpose of a salad, really. And this sandwich? This lovely melding of dressing and chicken and a fresh wholemeal bun and yes, the lettuce... it's a lovely compromise. :D Perfect for the lunch box. <3
Quote of the day: Enjoy every sandwich.
