Chicken Philly Sandwiches

Total Time

Prep/Total Time: 30 min.


4 servings

A Philly cheesesteak sandwich is a wonderful thing if you don't focus on the nutritional downside. Preserve the flavor of a Philly sandwich but replace the steak with chicken for a healthier outcome. For added nutritional benefit, choose colorful red and orange sweet peppers. —Shelly Epley, Thornton, Colorado

    No peppers, no whole wheat anything, no tomatoes and no quinoa! Just onions and a little bit of garlic or garlic powder. If you’re not getting real Philly rolls, forget it.

    Just fantastic! I added fresh bacon and put over shredded romaine and some quinoa. Nom, nom, nom...

    This was great over rice instead of in a Hoagie Bun, too. Great recipe!

    Loved these sandwiches! I used a little under 1 lb of chicken since my buns were a bit longer. I decreased the salt because I added Montreal Chicken seasoning while the chicken was cooking. I also lightly buttered and grilled the buns. Can't wait to make again.
