This Is a Slow Cooker Recipe?

Slow Cooker Tuscan-Style Chicken Sandwiches


1 1/4 lb (about 6) boneless skinless chicken thighs
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 cup roasted red bell pepper (from a jar), cut into bite sized strips
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup mayonnaise
3 tablespoons purchased pesto
1 (10 in) focaccia (Italian Flat Bread)
6 slices tomato


Place chicken thighs in 3 1/2 or 4 quart slow cooker. Sprinkle with garlic, roasted pepper strips and salt.

Cover; cook on Low setting for 6 to 7 hours.

Just before serving, remove chicken from slow cooker; place on large plate. Shred chicken with 2 forks; return to slow cooker and mix well.

In small bowl, combine mayonnaise and pesto; blend well. Cut focaccia into 6 wedges; split each in half. Spread cut sides with mayonnaise mixture. With slotted spoon, place about 1/3 cup chicken mixture onto bottom half of each focaccia wedge. Top each with tomato slice and top half of focaccia.

Cook's Note:  I used our homemade pesto and this was wonderful.  I really wish I had made more when our basil was producing, but an early frost just took it for good.  Also, I used ciabatta instead of focaccia and it worked well.  I think either would be fine.  This was a really easy recipe and would work for bigger groups.
