Mississippi Chicken

I remember when I first heard about Mississipi roast. I made one almost immediately and LOVED it. After eating the first roast, I thought – how good would this be with chicken??

We love chicken. Since I have done Mississippi Chicken (same recipe as Mississippi roast, but with chicken), I’ve found that others have done the same (I wasn’t so unique after all, it seems!).

I would like to link to the original Mississippi Roast recipe, but I found it so long ago that I have no clue where I found it. But, many people have posted about it online, so you’d have no problem finding it.

For the Mississippi chicken, I did the exact same thing as the roast recipe that is all over the internet (except I use 16 oz of pepperoncini peppers).

I used 1/2 of this jar of peppers, including the juice.

I just add the chicken, the mixes, butter and pepperoncini peppers (with the juice) to a crock pot. I cook it on high for 4 hours.

When done, I shred the chicken and removed the stems from the peppers.

You may want to remove some of the liquid (it can be reserved to be a dip – think french dip – if you like!), prior to shredding the meat.

Just shake it up to combine, when ready.

You can eat it with vegetables or on a sandwich like we do. I like to put mayonnaise on a bun (or hoagie roll!), add the chicken (and some of the peppers) and provolone cheese. It’s hard to beat – for tastiness and easy recipes!
