I usually use my slow cooker for recipes that take around 8 hours so it can cook while I’m at work; however, this recipe for slow cooker chicken caesar wraps takes considerably less time (only 4.5 – 5.5 hours on LOW, even less on high). That means it’s not quite long enough to cook while I’m at work but too long to cook the whole thing after I get back from work. On a rainy Sunday, however, it’s perfect. We had the kind of weather where you want a home cooked meal but too exhausted from a busy weekend to put forth any real cooking effort. It could cook away while we ran errands and caught up on the DVR.
I followed the recipe exactly, simply cutting it in half for our family of two. 1 lb. of chicken makes 3 sandwiches. I cooked it on high and checked on it after 2 hours, when I learned it was plenty cooked enough to start shredding so you can probably shave 30 minutes off the recipe if you’re pressed for time.
I was a bit stingy with the parm (see assembly pics with and without chicken, above) so that would be the only change I make next time. I should know better than to skimp on cheese.
Albert enjoyed it and actually requested I make the chicken again to serve over rice, so that’s something to keep in mind for the future. I also enjoyed it because it required exactly 5 ingredients and 0 effort on my part.
