I can honestly say, I have NEVER met a single soul who doesn’t love Philly Cheese steak sandwiches. And with good reason – these meaty sandwiches are beyond delicious. Traditionally made with steak, and topped with green peppers, onions and melted cheese, a cheese steak can be waaaaaaay too many Weight Watchers Points to enjoy on a regular basis. But by using chicken breast and a reduced fat provolone cheese instead, I was able to bring the Points down to a reasonable 7 Points + per sandwich, including the roll. I used Trader Joe’s Artisan rolls because they are low in Points and taste amazing, but the square shape make them not as fancy as the traditional hoagie roll used in cheese steak recipes. Also, I used a whole slice of provolone on each sandwich, so it ended up covering most of the chicken and veggies which makes it harder for you to see the insides of the sandwich based on my photo. But, you guys, this sandwich is SO good! Oh, and did I mention it’s all prepared in a crock pot? That’s righ…quick, easy, and delicious, this Crock Pot Chicken Philly Cheese Steak Recipe is a must make.
