Tuscan-Style Chicken Sandwiches
Why I Love This Recipe
If you have the time, and get up early enough, this is a great lunch. The recipe is from a Slow Cooker booklet by Pillsbury. This would also taste great on ciabatta bread, and maybe add some alfalfa sprouts or other greens.

1 1/4 lbs boneless, skinless chicken thighs (about 6)
