YUMMY!  I loved this summer sandwich idea.  I took it from this great blog that I recently discovered.  I used half thighs and half breasts which really worked well.  Breasts get dried out quick in the slow cooker but when cooked along with the thighs, they tasted really delish.  I want to make this again tomorrow.  4 stars.


  1. All looks good but don't you think that adding some color whould make it look more appealing? Maybe throw a little tomatoe in the sandwich or, better still, some red peppers (cooked or uncooked). Definately going to give your sandwich a try.

    I made this in my dutch oven using only chicken breast & it was delicious! We used wraps instead of bread. One of the easiest recipes I have made in a long time and it tasted GREAT! Thanks!!

  3. Made this but used just thighs instead of breast then chucked the bones back in the slow cooker with the drained fluid and some rather ancient vegetables from the bottom of the drawer and had a really lovely chicken stock a few hours later.
    Also put red pepper and sweet corn in the sarnie - it was just delicious!
