Easy Crock Pot Hot Chicken Sandwiches

As promised – this is the easy, shortcut, crock pot, cream-of-whatever soup version of my grandma’s hot chicken sandwiches.  Leftovers can be scooped and frozen like in Shortcut Shredded Chicken for quick sandwiches later, or to add a little meat to a soup or casserole.  Vary the soups according to your taste and/or desire to eat lighter/healthier – i.e. low fat or low sodium soups.

When my sister’s girls were playing high school softball, the mothers would take turns providing the “team meal” for away games.  On my sister’s day, she would put the ingredients in the crock pot on low in the morning and by 2:30 in the afternoon, she had her  card table set up at the school door next to the team bus.  As the girls left school to get on the bus, she would scoop them up a hot chicken sandwich and hand them a baggie of grapes and carrots – (always, always, the nutritious side items)  – and the team loved it!  Her meal turn was always very popular – which reminds me, young children almost always like these sandwiches – I have made them for birthday parties and even some children’s events at church and they were well received.

Ingredients:

3 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breast, uncooked

1 each 10-3/4 ounce can cream of chicken soup

1 each 10-3/4 ounce can cream of celery soup

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

1 teaspoon onion powder

Directions:

Place all ingredients in crock pot on high.  Cover and cook 3 to 4 hours or until chicken shreds easily with two forks.  I shred the chicken in the crock pot, stir it well, then let it cook about another 30 minutes or so.    If you need additional liquid, you can add a little low sodium chicken broth.
