Crock Pot Shredded Chicken with Onion Soup & Italian Dressing Sandwiches

January 03, 2012




I am on a roll! First it was this. Then this.

I have now discovered another great dish for my crock pot! This chicken is sooooo good.  You can eat on a sandwich or just right off a plate. It is quick, easy and takes very few ingredients. 

The first time I made these, we added a slice of Swiss cheese per the suggestion of the recipe..that was awesome. 

But, if you don't have any on hand...eat it just plain.  It's just as good.

    1. Hi- Hope you enjoyed them! You should get about 6 sandwiches, depending on how much chicken you pile on your bun :)

  10. 1/4 cup water does not seem like enough liquid, is that right? Just wondering. :)

  11. Hello. I have been using this recipe for a few weeks and love it so wanted to thank you. It is so easy, inexpensive and everyone in my family loves it. We use it on sandwiches, but I also will mix some of it in with pesto pasta (I use a McCormick pesto sauce mix packet) and a little grated parmesan cheese to add some protein to a pasta dish and it is great that way too.
