Mini Chicken Cheesesteaks
A part of being married is learning to love what your other half loves. Or at least try. Whether it’s basketball, Storage Wars, or Philly cheesesteaks. I don’t think I ever had a Philly cheesesteak before I was married but ever since I’ve had a whole lot of them. When we go to a restaurant I can almost predict that my husband will order a Philly cheesesteak or something Buffalo flavored, which is why I also have so many Buffalo recipes on this blog.
But since marriage is also about compromise, I made a more girly version of the Philly classic. These chicken cheesesteaks still have peppers, onions, mushrooms, and cheese but use chicken which I always have on hand.
I’m embarrassed to say that I ate two of these for lunch and three for dinner. It wasn’t my finest moment.
Slice some mini hoagies or Cuban rolls and spread some butter on them and toast them for a couple of minutes.
After you’ve toasted them spread some garlic mayo on top generously.
Pile your chicken mixture on top.
Add some sliced Provolone or Mozzarella on top.
Melt the cheese and sprinkle some garlic salt on top. This adds a lot of flavor.
Mini Chicken Cheesesteaks
Chicken cheesesteak might not be the classic recipe, but it really has amazing flavor.
- 2 tablespoons oil
- 1 large uncooked boneless skinless chicken breast sliced thinly (or 2 small) (see Note)
- 1/2 white onion sliced thinly
- 1/2 green bell pepper seeds and ribs removed, sliced thinly
- 1 cup sliced button mushrooms
- 2 tablespoons butter melted
- 6 mini hoagie rolls split
- 1/3 cup mayo
- 1 clove garlic minced finely
- 6 ounces sliced Provolone or Mozzarella cheese
- garlic salt
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- In a large skillet heat oil over medium heat. Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper and add to the skillet. Add the onion, bell pepper, and mushrooms and cook for 6-8 minutes or until chicken is done and veggies are soft. Set aside.
- Brush the inside of the rolls with melted butter and toast for about 3 minutes.
- While rolls are toasting combine garlic and mayonnaise in a small bowl.
- Remove rolls from oven and spread mayonnaise mixture on the inside of the rolls.
- Spoon chicken and veggie mixture on one side of each roll and top with sliced cheese.
- Return hoagies to the oven for 2-4 minutes or until cheese is melted.
- Remove from oven. Sprinkle with garlic salt and enjoy!
You can also use leftover chicken that you already have. Just throw it in when the veggies are almost done to get it heated through.
