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.

  • 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.


Use whatever cheese you'd like and top with some chopped fresh parsley if desired.
