Tasty Tuesday – Crock Pot Chicken Philly Sandwiches

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.
