This French Dip Sandwich is probably my favorite slow cooker recipe ever. It creates the juciest, most flavorful and tender beef you can imagine.

I’m often asked which recipes I recommend making for people who are skeptical of lighter recipes. I have a ton that I’ve used to convert people to the “lite life,” and this “Fried” Chicken Sandwich recipe is at the top. The coating on the chicken is so thick and crunchy without being greasy.
