3tbspcorn starch(or sub in tapioca starch)
1/2tspeach salt and pepper
Hoagie buns or whole grain dinner rolls

Place all ingredients for the chicken philly cheesesteaks in a slow cooker and cook on low for 4-6 hours.
To serve: Cut rolls in half and place on baking sheet. Using a slotted spoon, pick up the chicken and vegetable mixture and place mixture inside each bun. Top with shredded cheese. Preheat broiler to high. Cook for 2-3 minutes or until cheese has melted and bread is lightly browned and crispy.
If you’re not going to be home during the day, then you can dump all of the ingredients in the slow cooker and cook on low for 4-6 hours.
If you are home, you may wish to add the vegetables at the end of the cooking cycle if you’d like them to be a bit more firm. In this case, cook chicken and broth on low for 4-5 hours, then add the vegetables to the slow cooker for the last hour on high.
You can reserve some of the liquid from the slow cooker to use as a dip for the sandwiches and eat it like a French dip sandwich.
Nutritional values are an estimate and based on one serving without a roll or cheese.
