Chicken Cheesesteaks

I ripped this one out of Everyday Food and was recently reminded of it when I saw it on Good Thymes and Good Food.

The time allocated was nowhere near enough for my chicken, which admittedly were very fat; I should have sliced them to make them thinner. But all in all, this was one delicious meal! (Oh, and I did NOT pull out the insides of the bread - that's the best part!)

  • 1 pound chicken cutlets
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil, such as safflower
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 2 mixed bell peppers (ribs and seeds removed), thinly sliced (I omitted)
  • 1 large red onion, halved and thinly sliced
  • 4 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  • 6 ounces sliced provolone cheese
  • 4 soft hoagie rolls, split lengthwise
  • 1/4 cup light mayonnaise

1. Heat broiler, with rack set 4 inches from heat. On a rimmed baking sheet lined with aluminum foil, toss chicken with 1 tablespoon oil; season with salt and pepper. Broil, without turning, until chicken is opaque throughout, 5 to 7 minutes.

2. Transfer to a cutting board (reserve baking sheet); let cool, and thinly slice. Set chicken aside.

3. On baking sheet, toss together peppers, onion, garlic, and remaining tablespoon oil. Broil, tossing occasionally, until crisp-tender and slightly charred, 8 to 10 minutes; season with salt and pepper.

4. Add chicken to broiled vegetables; toss, and spread in a single layer.

5. Top chicken and vegetables with cheese; broil until cheese is bubbling, 30 seconds to 1 minute.

6. Scoop out most of the doughy center from both halves of rolls; discard.

7. Spread rolls with mayonnaise; fill with chicken and vegetables.

8. Serve immediately.


  1. I'm glad I reminded you of this and that you made it! :) We really liked these.

  2. Wow - these look great! I would love to dig into one right about now :)
