My family loves my Chicken Philly Cheesesteaks. It’s not only popular among adults, but the kids love it too. Top it off with your favorite hot sauce, and you got a family favorite!

This lightened-up version is a popular dish in our household. It is an easy weeknight dinner that the entire family will enjoy. Here’s the recipe:

Serves 4

  • 4 chicken breasts
  • 1/4 cup grapeseed oil and two tablespoons divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 cup mixed bell peppers thinly sliced
  • 1 medium onion sliced
  • 3/4 cup white or cremini mushrooms sliced
  • 1/4 cup white wine
  • 1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon low-sodium soy sauce
  • 4 whole-wheat hoagie rolls
  • 4 slices provolone cheese
  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Pound chicken breasts lightly so they are of even thickness.
  2. Place chicken breast in a 13″ x 9″ baking dish, making sure there is no overlap. Coat each breast with 1/4 cup grapeseed oil on each side.
  3. Bake chicken in oven for approximately 20 minutes, until juices are clear or a meat thermometer reads 160-170 degrees.
  4. Remove chicken from oven and cover with tinfoil. Allow to rest for 5-10 minutes while the juices settle.
  5. Slice into small strips.
  6. For the sandwiches, preheat the oven to broil.
  7. Heat a large skillet over medium heat with 2 tablespoons of grapeseed oil.
  8. Sauté peppers, onions and mushrooms until golden brown 8-10 minutes.
  9. Add garlic and cook for another minute.
  10. Turn heat to low and deglaze with white wine.
  11. Add chicken back in with soy sauce and Worcestershire sauce. Cook 1-2 minutes to combine.
  12. Line a baking sheet with tinfoil and place hoagie rolls on it. Assemble the sandwiches with the chicken vegetable mixture and 1 slice of provolone cheese.
  13. Broil for about 2-3 minutes until golden brown. Watch so they do not burn.
  14. Let cool for a few minutes and enjoy!

Recipe Notes

Rockstar Momma Hack: You can make this recipe with leftover chicken or grab a whole roast chicken from your local grocery store. Further, make an extra few breasts and you will have another weeknight dinner to throw on top of a salad, pasta or heat up with BBQ sauce to serve with a side.

Doggy Food Tip: When I cook chicken breasts for my family, I always cook an extra one for Gatsby unseasoned to combine in his kibble or make a meal with steamed vegetables and an optional whole-grain or sweet potato.
