Chicken Philly Sandwiches in the Slow Cooker

Shares 22


This is one of those “throw it all in the crockpot” recipes that I love.  I made it on a busy day last week or the week before.

Actually, I’m not sure exactly when I made it.  Soccer season is in high gear right now, and schedules are a bit like moving targets.  We’ve packed more lunch meat sandwiches to be eaten on the field than I care to admit.

I don’t even have an ingredient photo for this.  I could have sworn that I snapped one, but I can’t find it on my camera.  The ingredients are all common though, with the possible exception of marinated artichoke hearts.

I was a little afraid my kids would balk at the artichokes, but they didn’t.  After it all cooked and we put it on sandwiches under melted cheese, they didn’t notice the ‘chokes.

Notice the big air pocket holes in the buns?  I cheaped out in the bread section.  Instead of buying hoagie rolls, I saved $1 and bought these strange rolls.  Every one of them had a giant hole in it.  They tasted good, but it made for strange looking sandwiches.

  1. This sounds sooo good. I want one for breakfast (is that weird??). This is exactly the kind of recipe I need to keep close when work gets busy and life is insane.

  2. Stumbled upon your blog last week, and already, I love it! The recipes and meal plans seem to be just my style – homemade but quick. I can’t wait to try this slow-cook recipe. My husband loves sandwiches, but in my mind, cold deli meat is for lunch, not dinner. However, this looks like something we’d both love.

  3. I put all the ingredients in the slow cooker but the hoagie rolls got all soaked and fell apart and the cheese melted. Weird.

  4. Made this tonight – LOVED IT! Our son was out with friends but my husband and I went back for seconds and we almost ate it all! Will definitely make again. Easy and delicious.

  5. Do you put the cheese in the slow cooker with the chicken as well? Or do you put the cheese on after the chicken is done and on your bun.

    Could you cook these in the insta pot and if so how long? Could you use steak instead of chicken? Would that change the time?

    • To use the instant pot you’ll need to add another cup of liquid. You could use chicken broth or Italian dressing or a combo. Set the timer for 12-15 minutes of cook time with a quick pressure release. You can use steak, but you’ll need a longer cook time I think.
