Grilled Tahini Chicken Caesar Sandwiches

Grilled Tahini Chicken Caesar Sandwiches

Delicious grilled chicken caesar sandwiches with fresh tahini slaw and all of the toppings your heart desires. These chicken caesar sandwiches use a flavorful, dairy free tahini caesar marinade that doubles as the slaw dressing! You’ll LOVE these sandwiches for an easy summer dinner or lunch. Great for BBQs, too!

Anyways, I was dreaming up new fun recipes using grilled chicken and realized I didn’t have a go-to chicken sandwich on the blog yet. What was I waiting for?! These incredible grilled chicken caesar sandwiches are packing the flavor thanks to my famous tahini-based vegan caesar dressing, which you’ll use as both the chicken marinade and the dressing for super crunchy, fresh slaw.

Pile these chicken sandwiches high on your fav buns with the best toppings like sweet tomato and creamy avocado. They’re perfect for your next BBQ, potluck, or just weeknight dinner or lunch. One bite and Abra, Tony and I were 100% hooked. As always, I’ve included tons of ways to customize your sandwiches and even ways to make them without a grill. Enjoy!


For the marinade & dressing:

1/4 cup drippy tahini (we use Soom tahini)

1 tablespoon olive oil

Juice from ½ large lemon (about 2-3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice)

1 clove garlic, grated or finely minced (or sub ¼ teaspoon garlic powder)

1 teaspoon very finely diced capers

2 teaspoons caper brine (from the jar of capers)

1 teaspoon dijon mustard (we love a grainy dijon!)

3 tablespoons warm water

Plenty of freshly ground salt and black pepper

For the chicken:

4 larger boneless skinless chicken thighs or 4 medium to smaller chicken breasts

Freshly ground salt and pepper

For the tahini caesar slaw:

1/2 cup shredded green cabbage

½ cup shredded red cabbage (or do a blend of both!)

1/2 cup shredded carrots

¼ cup chopped green onion

1 teaspoon pure maple syrup

Freshly ground salt and pepper

For assembling:

4 hamburger buns of choice (I love Dave’s Killer Bread or brioche!)

1 large ripe avocado, sliced

1 roma or heirloom tomato, sliced
