Chicken Philly Cheese Steaks

chicken philly cheese steaks recipe

Bruchi's chicken Philly cheese steaks are one of my husband's favorite take out foods. He loves them so, so much, and sadly they are also so, so bad for you! I've tried before to replicate his chicken cheese steaks at home in a healthier (and cheaper!) way, but could never quite get it right...until now!



These babies were good. My husband took one bite, mumbled "PERFECT!" around a mouth full of food and then didn't talk again until he had inhaled not one but two sandwiches! I'm not sure how healthy they are after you eat two of them, but at least he got less fat and more veggies then Bruchi's!

Chicken Philly Cheese Steaks

Ingredients:
3 cups of chicken (or three breasts) cooked and shredded
1 onion, chopped into very thin strips
1 green bell pepper, chopped into very thin strips
1 package of cut mushrooms, or about 1 cup
white cheese of your choice, we used 1 1/2 cups of shredded low fat mozzarella but "real" cheese steaks use white American cheese
1/4 cup of Worcestershire sauce
cooking spray
salt
pepper
4 buns, I used round buns because that's what I had, but traditionally you use hoagie rolls

1. Grease your pan with cooking spray and set your burner on medium heat. Combine your chopped peppers, onions and mushrooms and saute until your veggie mixture is just starting to get soft. This is my favorite part! I just love the smell of cooking veggies, it just makes the whole house smell amazing.

2. Add the chicken and Worcestershire sauce to the pan and turn the heat up to medium high. Cook the chicken/veggie mix until the Worcestershire is absorbed and the chicken is starting to brown, then reduce the heat to low. Salt and pepper to taste.

3. Sprinkle your cheese over the pan of chicken and veggies. Cover with the lid and let the cheese melt, about 5 minutes. Your cheese should be gooey and melting into the crevices of the chicken mixture.

4. While the cheese is melting, lightly toast the halves of your bun. Once you can see the cheese is fully melted, scoop heaping portions onto the buns, and serve! 

Serves 4 adults, or 2 adults and 2 kids with one sandwich left over. My husband was thrilled to have one left over to take to work this week! Please let me know what you think, and I'm always looking for new ideas to add to make this recipe even better, so feel free to critique in the comments!

  1. That is really sweet of you. Looks like an amazing recipe. I'll have to try it out. I've been meaning to replicate Chipotle burritos. But I fear it will open up the gates of awesomeness!
