Pulled Chicken Caesar Sandwiches – Iowa Girl Eats

I really enjoy a chicken caesar salad wrap, so I thought I would try this Pulled Chicken Caesar Sandwich from Iowa Girl Eats.

Pulled Chicken Caesar Sandwich

Ingredients

Chicken, Caesar dressing, Parmesan cheese, Parsley flakes, Romaine lettuce, Sandwich thins, Butter, Garlic powder. 7/10

Poached Chicken Breast

Level of difficulty

The recipe is straightforward.  You do need to keep an eye on the sandwich thins though, to make sure they don’t burn. 8/10.

Shredded Poached Chicken

Time taken to prepare

The chicken takes a while to poach and the recipe then suggests waiting for it to cool a while before mixing it with the dressing and other ingredients.  It’s not a throw it together sandwich. 6/10

The food

I find poached chicken a little bit bland, but it does stay fairly juicy when cooked this way. I liked the way the chicken, dressing and parmesan are mixed together over a heat, before going into the bread.  A good quality caesar dressing is essential for this recipe. The garlic powder was a subtle flavouring, as fresh garlic would probably have been overpowering in this recipe. I have never cooked with sandwich thins before and I’m not sure I really like them.  I would probably use pitta or a bap if I made it again.  7/10

Overall

This was a great sandwich and as if you prepare the chicken in advance, it wouldn’t take long to cook. 7/10

Turkey Caesar Salad with Leftover Croutons

 

Ingredients

Romaine lettuce, Cooked turkey, Dried cranberries, Parmesan cheese, Dressing/Stuffing, Olive oil, Anchovy fillets, Garlic, Sherry vinegar, Lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, Dijon mustard. 8/10

Stuffing Croutons

Level of difficulty

This is an easy recipe mainly using leftovers. 8/10

Turkey

Time taken to prepare

The croutons need to be cooked in the oven, but everything else can be prepared while they are cooking. 7/10

Caesar Dressing

The food

The dressing had a bit too much garlic and some parmesan in the dressing would have worked.  Other than the garlic, the dressing was pleasant and the sherry vinegar gave it quite a distinctive flavour.  The cranberries, turkey and croutons worked well together, but the parmesan wasn’t really a flavour that I would put with the turkey and stuffing. 8/10

Lettuce, Turkey, Croutons, Cranberries

Overall

This is a little taste of Thanksgiving/Christmas in a salad bowl.  While I wouldn’t really call it a caesar salad, the overall taste was great and this is definitely a salad that I would make again. 7.75/10
