Tuscan Chicken Sandwiches

This easy Tuscan Chicken Sandwiches recipes with an Italian flair is cooked in your crockpot.

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 7 hours

Total Time: 7 hours, 15 minutes

Yield: 6 sandwiches


  • 1-1/2 lbs. boneless, skinless chicken thighs
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 red bell pepper, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 2 Tbsp. chicken broth
  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/3 cup pesto
  • 1 tomato, seeded and chopped
  • 1/2 cup baby frozen peas, thawed and drained
  • 1 10" round focaccia bread, split in half


In 4-5 quart slow cooker, place chicken, onion, bell pepper, and garlic. Sprinkle with salt and pour chicken broth over. Cover and cook on low for 6-7 hours.

In small bowl combine mayonnaise, pesto, chopped tomato, and peas; blend well and refrigerate.

When chicken is thoroughly cooked, remove from crockpot and shred, using two forks. Return chicken to crockpot and mix well.

Make sandwiches with tomato pesto spread, focaccia bread, and chicken filling. Slice the large sandwich into 6-8 wedges, and grill on a panini grill or dual contact grill until the bread is toasted. Serve immediately. Or you can just make sandwiches, as I did, with the filling, the pesto mixture, and avocados.

Sure fire hit!, Guest Liz

It's terrific even without focacia bread! Everyone wants the recipe which is so easy to follow. Start with a deboned rotisserie chicken and the taste level soars. It freezes well, too, in the unlikely event there some left over!
