Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Slow Cooker Meal I love this recipe! I make it every other week, and have shared it with several friends. It got three thumbs up from my teenagers. It is even better the second day:) For more color, I added red and yellow peppers as well as green.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing We loved this recipe.. Super easy! I didn't use the slow cooker because of time and it still was simple. I boiled the chicken on the stove top in Chicken broth and continued with the recipe. AND I didn't have buns so I served with baguette on the side.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excited for leftovers! Wow! This was incredible. Reminded me of a chicken philly cheesesteak from the mall. I made a few modifications to work with what I had in the kitchen. I did a quick sauté on the peppers & onions and added cubed magic chicken, 2 oz of cream cheese, a big handful of cheese, 1/4 cup water, & the seasoning and simmered on very low while the fries finished in the oven. I can't wait to try this in the crock pot!
