This pepperoncini beef (aka Drip Beef) recipe I shared last February continues to be one of my favorite slow cooker recipes ever. I make it all the time and love it for game day sandwiches or barbecues. Recently I was craving it but didn't have the energy to run to the store to buy beef. Luckily, I had some chicken in the freezer and decided to try out a version with chicken breast and it came out delicious. Tender, juicy chicken paired with the slightly spicy flavor to the peppers. It’s great packed in a sandwich, served over rice, or on a bed of greens.

Made this with chicken tenderloins (bc that's what I had) and a 12.5 oz jar of sliced peppers and it's very juicy and tasty! Will definitely make again. Super easy. I just had with a side of veggies.

Wow...we loved this a lot! I used boneless skinless chicken thighs and increased the amount of pepperoncini's. Not a drop was left. Husband and kid approved! Kids thought it was spicy but I've raised them eating spicy so they still really enjoyed it! Definite repeat recipe for me!

In my opinion, it's not very spicy and should be fine for kids. But it's hard to say since I eat a lot of spicy food and may not be the best judge :) You could use half the amount of pepperoncinis or look for mild pepperoncinis as well to cut the spice level.
