Slow Cooker Chicken Philly Cheesesteak Sandwich Recipe

So, funny story about this sandwich- my 6 year old daughter had just sunk her teeth into this crusty bread when she let out a little cry. She pulled her mouth away from the bun and there in the hard, crusty bread was her tooth.

Her teeth have literally been falling out of her head at a rapid rate. I think that this summer she has lost 4 teeth. My husband and I have done pretty well to make sure that the tooth fairy visits and does her job to leave money in exchange for her teeth.

But the other night, we had a total Tooth Fairy fail . . .
my daughter came running down the stairs the next morning with her tooth in her hand, yelling
“The Tooth Fairy forgot about me!!!”
Talk about heart breaking!

I was talking about this experience with my friends . . . thankfully we are not the only ones who have had this happen! The Tooth Fairy was sure to visit our home the next night and wrote a sweet apology letter, so all was forgiven and forgotten.

My husband and I vowed that we would never let this happen to us again and we swore that we would set alarms and do whatever it takes to help us remember. So, I wanted to ask all of you . . . what do you do in this situation? How do you remember to have the Tooth Fairy visit or what do you do if you forget? I would love to know!

And while we are on this subject, what is the going rate for baby teeth these days? Back in my day, it was a quarter . . . but with inflation and all that jazz,
I am sure that it’s a lot more. Ha ha!

Anyway, these sandwiches are awesome. I was actually going to make just regular cheesesteak sandwiches when I realized I didn’t have any beef. So, we compromised and used chicken, which my kids liked more than beef! It’s a quick, easy, and delicious meal- which means it’s a perfect 10 in my book!

This recipe can easily be made into a freezer meal that literally takes only a couple of minutes to prepare – just read the instructions of the recipe for directions on how to make this a quick and easy freezer meal!

  1. For your tooth fairy fail, what I always did was put the money under my pillow or something else (like the phone) on top of my pillow so that when I was going to bed, something was out of the ordinary and it would remind me. Good luck and thanks for the recipe! :-)

    The recipe sounds yummy. Will definitely be putting it my recipe file on my computer. We have definitely forgotten the tooth fairy! Once my son lost his tooth in bed so we told him that the tooth fairy had already left for her rounds so she wasn't prepared for him. I've heard of other parents saying that maybe it "dropped" behind the bed. As for the going rate - no clue - the tooth fairy never visited my house. We give my son between 25 cents to a dollar depending on what change, etc we have on hand. GOOD LUCK!
  3. making these right now.....but, I'm guessing you forgot to add something about cutting up the chicken breasts PRIOR to placing them in the slow cooker? Maybe?? (I assumed they would fall apart after cooking for 4 hours). All I know is I am SO ready to eat these sandwiches..............my house smells AMAZING!
  4. I had a nephew sleep over recently and found out that the tooth fairy leaves him $3. Not sure she will be doing that at our house when we get there. I like the idea of something special though like maybe a susan b. anthony dollar or a $2 bill, though that will require a trip to the bank and a bit of forethought :)
  5. By the time my third son starting losing teeth, the tooth fairy had apparently gotten very busy. Sometimes there were so many children losing teeth the same day he did, she didn't make it to his tooth for 2 or 3 days! And she leaves what we call at our house "golden dollars". Those are the $1 coins that are gold. So much more fun than an ordinary paper dollar bill and still worth a dollar to spend. (I don't know where the tooth fairy that visits some kids gets the $20 I hear my son talking about! Way too much, in my opinion.)

      My daughter tried to convince me that her friends were getting $5, $10 and upwards of $20 per tooth in her class! She was in 2nd or 3rd grade! Smh! I just told her or Youth Fairy must've ran outta money by the time she got to our house then, because she was only getting 25 cents to $1, at the most! LOL!

    I forgot tooth fairy business several nights in a row around Easter time.... I dribbled food coloring on note and printed how I (the tooth fairy) had been so busy helping the Easter bunny dye eggs that I had not had time...My Cara carried that little note in her pocket for weeks!
  7. First of all - - I will definitely be trying this recipe, sounds delicious. Second of all - - - the tooth fairy has forgotten to make a stop at our house too and I have told my kids that the tooth fairy has so many rounds to make, that she just didn't make it but I bet she will tonight and she'll leave an extra dollar or something special. : ) My youngest recently lost his tooth at daycare and he had gotten into some trouble that day and we had forgotten the tooth in his cubby but didn't realize till almost bedtime - - good thing is that I was able to text one of the girls who does side babysitting for me there and she put $2 in place of his tooth and then gave me his tooth on the side later. : ) I obviously have high expectations to fill after that one..............LOL
  8. I forgot to be the "tooth fairy" one night too, and I did the same thing you did, just wrote a sweet apology letter! I think the way you handled it was great, and you probably won't forget next time now!! :) Good looking sandwich by the way too...on my meal plan soon!

    I have loved browsing through your recipes! I definitely think these Chicken Phillys are going in the crockpot tomorrow! (It's already full today!) I'm new to the blogging world & post about homeschooling and cooking! Stop by sometime! Hope you have a great day! http://jaxmoose.wordpress.com/ or on FB https://www.facebook.com/TheSandBoxBlog

    I love all the recipes here and will definitely be trying this one very soon! Regarding the tooth fairy: I worked at a bank and it was always fairly easy to have a stash on hand at home of $2 bills or gold $1 coins - either one or the other, so my kids never got more than $2 per tooth! The gold dollars were actually more popular, they're a little more out of the mainstream.
  11. Spark*Amy
    Sounds yummy! Can't wait to try. In our house we know the Tooth Fairy is very busy so she may not come that very night (especially if she's out of cash!) but she will come! I think the note was a great touch! I too had to set an alarm on my phone to remember!
  12. The chicken sounds delish!! As for the tooth fairy, ours soon discovered the truth and wanted us to forget so they got "interest" with a note of apology. Our youngest always wrote notes asking if the fairy could leave her tooth because she wanted to save it. They got whatever change we had or a dollar bill. A few teeth rated more depending if it had been difficult to lose.
  13. I threw this into the crock pot in the morning on the first day of school. Being a teacher, I knew I would be staying a bit later at school that day so I wouldn't have time to cook dinner when I got home. I was anxious to sit down to dinner to hear about my twins' first day and unwind after an eventful one for me. I have tried your slow cooker recipes before and you girls are really spot-on!! This one was another hit! There was enough left over to freeze and use on another busy night. Thanks so much!

    this was very good. A lot of liquid so you need to use a slotted spoon. I thought I'd try something interesting and use the chicken in a stuffed pepper to cut out 500 calories. Still topped it with the cheese and it was very good. Probably better on bread. We are reserving the leftovers for tomorrows dinner.

    Hmmmm although there is some serious false advertisement happening with the name of.this... It still looks amazing. Being born and raised and still residing in Philly i can assure you this isn't anything like a Philly chicken cheese steak beside the fact that it is chicken.lol

    I forgot one time and she was so upset, so I had her eat her breakfast and went and put the money in the pillow case and told her after breakfast lets go look again maybe you missed it or it was placed in a new spot. I told her sometimes their are new tooth fairies and they all put them in different spots. She Often the pillow me still didn't see it, so I told her to look inside the pillow case just in case they moved the spot. There it was, like it was there all along, lol. That never happened again. Now that they are old enough, 9 and 12 they know there's not a tooth fairy, so they get the money right away. We gave $10 for their very first tooth and for every other tooth it was $5.00. Thank you for all your recipes. They are scrumptious. I love your blog.
  17. The tooth fairy has fallen behind the 8-ball around here more than once, too... we have 2 girls losing teeth like crazy. Who knew there was a second round around 9??? One of us runs distraction, while the other plants the cash. Then we suggest that we help look, because perhaps they have missed what was left. Surprise! It must of simply been overlooked somehow! We leave $5 since that is what their cousins were getting. We let them spend some and they have to save some in their bank accounts. The recipe will be tried tonight around here... looks perfect. I love slow-cooker recipes and you always have umpteen! I recommend your website to everyone!

    When the tooth fairy forgot at our house, she would leave a note the next day saying that there was a lot of children in the world that day that had lost a tooth and that she was behind schedule, and was really really sorry. There was always "fairy dust" on the letters and pillow and around the gold coin that was left. Our tooth fairy always left a shiny gold dollar coin. One time my son put a dogs tooth in the tooth fairy pillow and he got a piece of coal and a note that said, "Good try"! "Santa isn't the only one who leaves coal." As they got older and no longer believed in the tooth fairy, they still got their gold coin.
