Freezer to Slow Cooker Chicken Philly Cheesesteak

Freezer to Slow Cooker Chicken Philly Cheesesteak

You can cook this dinner to serve immediately or you can freeze a batch and cook later.  You can use as much or as little of the sauce as you would like, depending on how soggy you like your roll. I also like to serve it on the side and use it as a dip. Best served with homemade sweet potato fries!

Ingredients:

  • 3 tablespoons corn starch
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into strips
  • 1 large red onion, sliced

  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 tsp. minced garlic
  • 6 slices of provolone cheese
  • Crusty French sandwich bread, toasted
  1. Mix corn starch into chicken broth.
  2. Place all ingredients EXCEPT for cheese in the slow cooker.
  3. Cook on “low” setting for 6 hours, or until chicken is cooked through and peppers are soft.
  4. Lay cheese over mixture.
  5. Cook on “low” for additional 10 minutes or until cheese is melted.
  6. Serve on a fresh, hot roll.
