Easy Italian Chicken Sandwiches

Tonight, we tried something different.  Wasn't sure our crowd would go for it as it got dirty looks from the littles.  Surprisingly, they liked it.  The cheese hid the veggies and they were pleased with the taste.  Will definitely make again.  {Sorry no photos.}  My additions/substitutions are in blue.

Easy Italian Chicken Sandwiches

6 boneless chicken breast halves
1 tbsp. black pepper to taste
1 2/3 oz. dry Italian salad dressing mix
28 oz. chicken broth 16 oz. - too salty, will try water next time
1- 8 oz. jar of mild giardiniera

Place ingredients in crock pot in order listed.  Cook on low 6 hours. Or high for 3-4 hours. Remove chicken and shred using 2 forks.  Mine was so tender, I shredded it right there in the crock pot.  Return meat to crock pot.  Serve on Italian bread or rolls.  I used hot dog buns (easier for the littles to handle) toasted in the oven.  Topped with a slice of muenster cheese.  Pop back in oven until cheese is melted.
