A few days back I needed a dinner that was simple to prep, required little maintenance, was slow cooker friendly and would feed the whole family.

If you are a mom you know that can be tough!

I searched the interwebs {that's the internet for you techy folks} and scoured for something easy.  We had a full day ahead of us and I needed a hot dinner to come home too.  Well, I guess we didn't NEED a hot dinner to come home to, but I WANTED a hot dinner to come home to....it just sounded good.

We had eaten our share of cold meat sandwiches over the weekend and for once I wanted to act like a food blogger and create a....meal.

I will be the first one to say that this meal isn't the "healthiest", but it is tasty and sometimes after a long day {tell me again why the kids had Monday off from school?} you want something filling and HOT.

I gave it this fancy name of Hot-n-Cheesy Slow Cooker Chicken Sandwiches, but really it could be called Slow Cooker Chicken Dump Sandwiches.  As like shown in the photo above, you literally dump in some pantry ingredients, along with chicken breasts and call it good.

All you really need is a good sized slow cooker {I use this 6-quart version - on sale for just under $30!} and some decent hamburger buns.  Not the cheap pack-of-8 version you can get at the store for 99 cents.  Splurge my friends and get the ones that are double the size, coated in seseme seeds and usually sell for around $2.99.

You see you need GOOD BUNS {in both life, and for eating, for opposite reasons}.  A good bun will not let you down.  It will not let the mixture soak through and make the bun fall apart.  This is essential.

This meal reminded me a bit of a turkey dinner.

Except it is chicken.

And there are no potatoes.

But it is creamy, hearty and rib-sticking good, just like a turkey dinner.

I worked SO HARD at this dinner {the 5 minute prep really did me in} that I went simple and served these sandwiches along side some sweet potato chips and fresh fruit.  Actually I'm wondering if it took me longer to open up the bag of chips and cut up the fruit than to actually make the dinner?

I'll never know.
