These super tasty sandwiches are a perfect busy evening meal. The filling is an easy dump and cooker slow cooker recipe. When you get home all you have to do is shred it and assemble the sandwiches.

You can eat them as is, but a quick trip to the oven for just a few minutes makes them even better. This is one your whole family will love for sure!

Happy Valentine’s Day!   I probably should be sharing something decadent and chocolaty with you. Or maybe something meatless to kick off Lent.

But I remade these chicken Parmesan sandwiches recently and I couldn’t hold out on you any longer!

If you are abstaining from meat today, just put these on the menu for tomorrow! Or save them for the next busy day where you know everyone will be chasing their tails amd hungry for a tasty dinner.

That is where the slow cooker comes in handy.  It is nice to dump a few ingredients in the pot in the morning and come home to dinner almost ready.

All you have to do when you get home is toast up the buns and shred the chicken. Top it with some provolone and stick it back in the oven for a minute and you’ll have yourself a great meal.

The buns are toasty, with that garlic butter goodness.  The meat is tender and flavorful and of course melted cheese always makes things a bit better!

These Italian flavors are always a hit with my gang.  But if you would like something a bit different, you may like these other slow cooker chicken recipes.

If a burrito bowl is what you have in mind, you should make the salsa chicken for sure! It is full of flavor and great served over lime cilantro rice.

Oooooh, or honey sesame chicken! Now I’m hungry and want them all.

Every time we have a good slow cooker dinner like this, it makes me wonder why I don’t use it more often.  I have a few ideas I want to try out soon.

Hopefully they’ll work out and I can share them with you.  What are your favorite things to cook in the slow cooker?

For another fun twist on chicken parm, try chicken Parmesan stuffed shells. They are fancy enough for guests, but really pretty simple to put together.

I could use one of these right now! They look and sound so tasty. I love the provolone cheese. Warm sandwiches are always so nice. I hope that you had a nice Valentine's day. This was a nice change to post. I posted a big heart of Fudge for Valentine's day, and right now a sandwich sounds better!

Hi Carlee, my slow cooker is rarely put away I use it so often. Saying that though I have never, ever cooked anything pullable in it and I do keep meaning to. Everytime I read one of your pulled meat recipes I think I must give that a go, but never quite get there... My favorite slow cooker meal has to be soup. The slow cooking brings out the flavours perfectly.

One of these days you'll do it! I wish I could talk my husband into liking soup more, I love it but he could do without. If he enjoyed it, I would probably always have some perking on the counter during the winter too!
