I’m so excited about this week’s recipe! I love Philly Cheese Steak sandwiches, but beef does not love me. So, I was really happy when I found a recipe on Pinterest for a chicken version of these delicious sandwiches. What made it even better was that it’s a crock pot recipe! Great for a night when I have to work late and still need to have dinner for everyone when I get home.
This particular recipe is designed to be a healthy option (the original author gives it Weight Watcher points), but I didn’t use the reduced fat ingredients. I went with the regular options. I gathered the chicken breasts, green peppers, sweet onion, steak seasoning (I used homemade Outback style seasoning), butter, provolone cheese, and hoagie rolls.
First I put 2 tablespoons of butter in the bottom of the crock pot. Then I cut up the onions and put them into the slow cooker. Next came the sliced bell peppers.
Once the veggies were in the crock pot, I moved on to preparing the chicken. I sliced it and put the chicken into a Ziploc baggie with some of the steak seasoning. Then I squished it around to coat the chicken with the seasoning. When it was all covered well, I added it to the peppers and onions.
Then I set it on low for 4-6 hours and went to work. When I got home, I cut the rolls, added the cooked chicken and veggies, then put some sliced cheese on top of each sandwich. Once I had the hoagies set, I put them into the oven at 350 degrees for 4 minutes to melt the cheese and crisp the bread.
The sandwiches were really yummy! I can’t wait to try these again.
