peanutbutterbanana

This has to be one of my favorite cakes I make!  It’s fantastic.  I love the peanut butter mixed with banana flavor, and since peanut butter is on sale at Publix, Target, CVS, Kroger and Rite Aid this week, it’s a great time to try it out!

Slow Cooker Philly Cheesesteak Sandwiches

Looking for more penny pinched recipes? Here you go!

 

Goodness gracious, this recipe is perfect. It hits all the things I love in a recipe ~ it’s penny pinched, takes about seven seconds to dump in Mrs. Potts, is pretty low in calories (depending on how much hoagie roll & cheese you choose to eat . . .) and it’s delicious.

Need I say more?

Now, you could fluff the sandwich up a bit by adding some extra mayo or dijon mustard, or just leave it plain and simple. We loved it ~ my kids ate around the peppers and onion, and with less than 15 minutes of work dinner was done.

Success! Here’s the recipe . . .

 

Recipe

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 lb boneless skinless chicken breast (I used frozen)
  • 2 green peppers, sliced
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 14 oz can chicken broth
  • packet dry Italian seasoning mix
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 6 hoagie buns
  • 6-8 slices provolone

Instructions

  1. Place chicken in slow cooker.
  2. Slice onions and peppers, pour on top of chicken.
  3. Pour chicken broth over peppers, onions and chicken, then sprinkle Italian dressing packet over everything.
  4. Cook on low 6 hours or high 3-4 hours.
  5. When ready to serve, open hoagie rolls and layer a slice of cheese on one side of each, then broil in oven for 1-2 minutes until lightly browned and cheese has melted.
  6. Add mayonnaise or mustard if desired, and enjoy!
