Crock Pot Chicken Philly Cheese Steak Recipe – 7 Points +

Crock Pot Chicken Philly Cheesesteak

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.

Crock Pot Balsamic Chicken with Pears and Portabella Mushrooms

Lately, I’ve been really into the whole “Clean Eating” phenomenon because I really do think that eating “cleaner” foods (i.e. foods that are not processed, made with artificial ingredients, etc) is not only the way to serious weight loss, but also to much better health. I’m not perfect…and I still enjoy some junk food, some fast food, and some foods that are just down right awful for you. But now, I do it very occasionally, and I real labels on EVERYTHING. Feeding my two children has made me an advocate for their healthy eating habits, as well as my own. So, I’ve been trying some new clean eating recipes and working on creating my own Weight Watchers Clean Eating Recipes. The first I tried was this Crock Pot Balsamic Chicken with Pears and Portabella Mushrooms from The Gracious Pantry.

My picky husband enjoyed it too, and I loved serving such a healthy meal for the family. And each serving was just 4 Points +! This will definitely be made again and again.
