French Chicken Dip Sandwiches #Recipe @PegCochran


This recipe came from a web site called Skinny-Ish.  You can serve them for lunch or dinner, perhaps with a side of Cole slaw.  For my serving, I took out some of the soft inside of the roll to create a trough for the chicken and also to eliminate a few carbs!  Of course this is usually made with beef, but we try to keep our consumption of red meat to a minimum.  And these were quite tasty with chicken!


2 lbs. chicken breast raw

1 large yellow sweet onion thinly sliced

2 tbsp butter  

1/2 tbsp olive oil

3 cups of chicken broth

2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce

2 tbsp white flour

4-5 cloves garlic minced

2 tsp kosher salt

 Pepper to taste

1 cup shredded mozzarella


6 hard rolls  


Heat olive oil and butter. Add thinly sliced onions, salt and pepper to taste, and cook for approximately 12-15 minutes until the onions become very soft and a little caramelized.

Place chicken breasts in a slow cooker, followed by the cooked onions, minced garlic, chicken broth and salt & black pepper.  Go easy on the salt unless you are using low sodium chicken broth.


Whisk together flour and Worcestershire sauce and whisk the mixture into the broth on top of the chicken. Cook on low for 7-8 hours.

Remove the chicken, place onto a cutting board, and cut into pieces or lightly shred with two forks.


Assemble the sandwiches

Preheat oven to 415 degrees. On a sheet pan lay bottom of the roll down, top each roll with about 4 ounces of chicken, 1/4 cup of the au jus from the slow cooker, two tbsp of shredded mozzarella, and then the top of the bun.


Bake for approximately 10 minutes or until the bread is slightly toasted and the cheese is melted. Serve with the remainder of the au jus for dipping.  


Writer-in-residence Penelope Parish will need to use every trick in her quaint British bookshop to unravel a murderous plot that threatens to ruin a ducal wedding.

The wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Upper Chumley-on Stoke has all the makings of a fairy tale, complete with a glowing bride and horse-drawn carriage. But it wouldn't be much of a story without a villain, and as American Gothic novelist Penelope Parish is coming to learn, happy-ever-afters are as fraught in this charming British town as they are in her books.

When the Duke's former girlfriend is found murdered at the reception it's up to Penelope and her newfound family at the Open Book bookshop to catch the killer before they strike again.



Murder in the Margins has everything: England * Charming town * Book shop * Writer-in-residence * Royalty * Cute detective * Murder!



The plot thickens for American gothic writer Penelope Parish when a murder near her quaint British bookshop reveals a novel's worth of killer characters.

  1. What a fun alternative to the usual!
    Sounds very tasty.
    I'm with you on minimizing the red meat. If I'm going to have some, I want to really get my money's worth. Like a really good steak or prime burger.

  2. Oh yes, this sounds like an easy summer meal. Thanks

  3. I would like to know if you can make available the option to print the recipe only without the photos? So many great recipes, but the "print friendly" isn't particularly user friendly.
