Break out the Slow Cooker for these delicious Chicken French Dip Sandwiches. With just a few fresh ingredients, it’s a super easy weeknight meal.
Starting today, every Sunday this Fall will be Slow Cooker Sunday. I’ve asked some friends to join me, and together we will be bringing you a new and amazing Slow Cooker recipe, from easy dinners to delicious desserts and everything in between! I’m kicking it off with these amazing Slow Cooker French Dip Sandwiches.
It’s back-to-school time and that means it’s time to start collecting those crazy easy dinners to help get you through those busy nights. Chicken has always been our go-to for dinners and these sandwiches are the definition of easy.
If you love French Dips, these Chicken French Dips are soon to become a favorite. All you need is your Slow Cooker, chicken breasts, onion and garlic. Toss it all in together and cook on high for a few hours.
The chicken is shredded and the juices are reserved because you’ll want all those yummy goodness for dipping those hearty sandwiches in! I didn’t toast the bread on these sandwiches but you could definitely do that to add an extra layer of flavor and help the cheese to melt.
- 2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breast (about 4)
- 1 medium white or yellow onion
- 3 cloves garlic, finely minced
- 1 cup low-sodium chicken stock
- 6 subway style french rolls
- 6 slices of Provolone cheese
- Slice the onion in half and then into thin strips. Place the onion pieces at the bottom of the slow cooker. Add the garlic and the chicken broth.
- Season chicken breasts with salt and pepper and place on top of the onions.
- Cook on high for about 3-4 hours (or on low for 4-6 hours).
- Shred the chicken in the slow cooker and keep on warm until ready to serve.
- Strain the meat and reserve the juices dipping, if desired. I usually strain into a lage measuring glass and then pour into small ramekins.
- To serve, slice rolls in half lengthwise, load them up with shredded chicken and onions, top with cheese and serve with a ramekin of broth.
- *Optional - before assembling the sandwiches, lightly toast the bread in the oven, with the cheese on one half of each roll to melt.
