SRC: Crockpot Texas Chicken Sandwiches

Texas Chicken SandwichesThere were three things I hadn't eaten before moving to Texas: queso, guacamole and ranch dressing. My waistline would be better if I had never indulged in any of them, but you cannot live in Texas without those three staples. When I saw there was a recipe for Texas Chicken on Mom's Test Kitchen for this month's Secret Recipe Club, I knew it was the choice for me. I wouldn't be a true Texan if I didn't gravitate to it. And it couldn't have been easier. I decided to use the recipe in sandwiches, which made for a great weeknight meal, especially when served on my favorite brioche buns.  Next time, I will use the meat as a filling for tacos.  I may have gone back for another half sandwich hours after dinner...I really liked it!
Crockpot Texas Chicken Sandwiches

½ onion, sliced
2 chicken breasts
¼ cup chipotle peppers in adobe sauce
1 can Dr. Pepper (12 ounces)
2 teaspoons brown sugar
½ teaspoon salt

Brioche buns
Dill pickle slices
Ranch dressing
American cheese

Lay the onion slices in the bottom of the crockpot. Place the chicken breasts on top of the onions. Add the remaining ingredients to the crockpot. Cover and cook on low for 7-8 hours. Remove the chicken from the sauce and shred any large pieces that might still remain. Serve the chicken on toasted brioche buns with pickles, ranch dressing and cheese.

That's a mighty tasty looking sandwich! Who could imagine Dr. Pepper into the chicken preparation? Amazing!

I am now officially hungry!

What an easy weeknight meal! These sandwiches sound great! :)

FransFavs said...

This sounds yummy and easy--two of my favorite words when it comes to a new recipe! Great SRC pick...

Mom said...

Looks Yummy! Correction! You would not TRY guacamole (I made it a lot.) or ranch dressing. "Gross" was the adjective for each one according to you. I think you maybe had queso (kinda') at "Chi-Chi's".

Awesome sandwich! Addition of Dr Pepper is interesting...great SRC pick!

Amy CookingAdventures said...

This looks delicious! Love the Dr Pepper!

Karen S Booth said...

That looks amazing! Great SRC pick, Karen

Mom - I never had queso until Heather forced me to eat it with tortillas!

Sara said...

Looking to make this tonight but am worried about how spicy this is due to the chipotle peppers in adobo sauce.

How spicy is this dish?

The have a pretty good kick, I would reduce the chipotle by half, just one pepper in adobo.

I made these and they were AMAZING. Lots of kick to them, but that's how I like it! I didn't think I would need the ranch dressing (lol) and only had spicy sliced pickles on hand and OMG...Spicy, but awesome!
