  1. Add the grilled chicken ingredients to a large resealable plastic bag. Seal the bag and mix around until combined. Refrigerate for 1 to 2 hours.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the Caesar spread ingredients. Whisk to combine and reserve.
  1. Turn on the Cuisinart® Griddler®. Select Grill and set to 425°F. While the Griddler® is preheating, remove the chicken thighs from the bag and place on a plate lined with paper towels.
  2. Once the grill is preheated, put the chicken thighs on the bottom plate and set the count-up timer. Close the Griddler® and cook until the chicken is fully cooked through and grill marks are visible, 6 to 8 minutes. Remove the chicken from the Griddler® and reserve.
  1. Place a dollop of the Caesar spread on the top and bottom of each bun. Top each with a couple of lettuce leaves and a slice of tomato. Divide the grilled chicken among the buns and sprinkle with the dill. Top with the top half of the bun and serve immediately.
