Slow Cooker Chicken Cheesesteaks

Marc and I only live an hour and a half from Philly and we sure love our cheesesteak. The Pat’s vs. Geno’s debate is almost as old as Philly itself but personally, I’m a Tony Luke’s woman. Since Marc and I have cut out beef and pork though, a good old fashioned cheesesteak is not really on our menu anymore. So I decided to bring my own version of the Philly classic home with these amazing and simple slow cooker chicken cheesesteaks!

All of the filling ingredients for the slow cooker chicken cheesesteaks went right into my beloved slow cooker. Instead of regular red peppers, I used roasted red peppers to deepen the flavor. I also used a little paprika and crushed red pepper to give the mixture a big old kick.
Halfway through the cooking, I shredded the chicken. It was already fall apart tender and smelling so good! The mixture cooked low and slow for 8 hours total. So I was able to go about my day while the slow cooker did the work for me. It was glorious.

After the mixture finished cooking, I just laid out lovely cheddar cheese on my freshly toasted rolls. Then I stuffed the rolls to the brim with the yummy filling. Oh my goodness, these babies were so satisfying! I didn’t miss the beef at all because the flavor was so there. Even though Marc and I haven’t made it to Philly in a while, at least we got a little taste of it at home. Hope you all love these simple slow cooker chicken cheesesteaks too! xoxo

  1. Chicken breast and thighs are so perfect for the slow cooker and there’s no shortage of things you can make with them once finished and shredded. This recipe looks delish!
