I can honestly say, I have NEVER met a single soul who doesn’t love Philly Cheesesteak 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 cheesesteak can be way 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 makes them not as fancy as the traditional hoagie roll used in cheesesteak 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 crockpot? That’s right…quick, easy, and delicious, this Crock Pot Chicken Philly Cheese Steak Recipe is a must make.

  1. Amazing. I actually cooked in on the stove in a skillet because my crock pot isn’t working. Will definitely be making this again!

  2. this asks for two garlic cloves but never says where to use them. I’m guessing they go in with the onions and bell peppers?

  3. I made this tonight and it was delicious. I added the garlic on top of the chicken and added a bit of low sodium chicken broth. Towards the end of cooking I also added some banana peppers. This gave it a little zing and I would for sure add again. Thank you so much for all of your great recipes. I’m a little obsessed with your website!!! Thanks again!!!

  4. if i make this minus the cheese do you think I can reheat when its time to eat?

  5. This was delicious! Since I was also feeding this to my two- and four-year-olds, I simply diced both the onion and peppers and just put in frozen chicken tenderloins and shredded them prior to serving. My husband couldn’t believe that it was WW friendly and we’ll definitely make again.

    Can you tell me how many points a serving of just the filling would be? I want to add this to a tortilla or sandwich thin… ooh, maybe brown rice!


  7. There were comments about the Dale’s seasoning and now they are gone! I made this before using a steak seasoning recipe someone had posted since I don’t have Dale’s and now everything pertaining to the steak seasoning is gone! What happened?? I’m trying to make it right now :(

  8. Can you please tell me what the serving size would be (other than 1 sandwich – how much of the filling goes into the sandwich please)?

  9. we made this a couple of weeks ago and wow! so juicy and so good! i wanted two! the only thing i did different was i used jarred roasted red peppers instead of green bell peppers because i’m just not a fan if they aren’t soft enough. and rather than take the chance that they’d still be crisp, i used a pepper i know i love on sandwiches! thank you so much for this recipe!!

  10. These were fantastic! I added mushrooms and also put about 1/2 cup of fat free chicken broth in the crockpot to keep the chicken moist. Everyone loved them!!

    I thought this was excellent. I made it this weekend for my family. Our walmart didn’t have reduced fat provolone, so I used full fat which cost me 2 pp. I also used lavash bread for me. The family had soft; large rolls. The flavor was excellent. I don’t understand why this would be negative, obviously the point behind this is to be a leaner, full flavor, minus all the bad for you items haha. If we weren’t having issues with weight, we would be enjoying the full fat philly steak, drenched in the oil, slathered with cheese and a zillion calories haha!!

    Thanks again for all your wonderful recipes, and the hard work you put into sharing them with us. I’m fixing this for dinner tonight, and realized that the garlic isn’t mentioned anywhere in the preparation steps. I’m just going to throw it in he crock pot with the onions and bell peppers.

    Looks good.

    But you’ve obviously NEVER eaten a real Philadelphia Cheesesteak. Green peppers? Butter (light)? Unfried onions? This isn’t even close. You need to come here and try one…or a half. Use your extra weekly point allowance, LOL.

    Maybe you should call it something other than a Philly Cheesesteak?

    • LaaLoosh Reply

      Lol….ok, ok…I knew there’d be some Philly local who’d give me some flack about this :). I would never even attempt to knock off a low cal version of an AUTHENTIC Philly Chesesteak. They are just too good as is, and not worth sacrificing, even though I would probably use my entire week of flex Points on just 1 sandwich. My version, is just a healthy sandwich that tries to capture just a smidgen of the basic essence of a Philly Cheesesteak. Since most Americans may never actually get to try a real one, we have to take what we can get. :).

        Sorry, but calling that a Philly Cheesesteak is like calling a crescent roll a french croissant. Still delicious, but not even close. Obviously, Meg, you’ve never eaten one, either. You just have to eat 0 Point soup all day and then just have a half…

    HI! This sounds A~mazing to me, but we are not big pepper fans around here…do you think I could use canned or jarred mushrooms on the bottom of the crock along with the onions instead of the beppers??? Also, what is your FAVORITE light butter that you use…how many PP????? Thanks for your help!!! Marcie

    • LaaLoosh Reply

      Yes, you can definitely use mushrooms or any other veggie you’d like! As for light butter, my go to is Brummel & Brown. It’s 1 Points + per tbsp. I LOVE it!
