My chicken cheesesteak will convince you to step away from the beef

I'm not a huge fan of chicken dishes, especially when the beef counterpart of a dish is typically much better! But for some reason I had a craving for a chicken cheesesteak like the ones I used to make when I was managing a Philly Connection restaurant back in my college days.

I started by dicing up about 1.5 lbs of chicken breast and seasoning it with garlic salt and fresh ground pepper. Onions were finely sliced, and a couple of cans of mushrooms were opened and drained in preparation for everything to go onto the Blackstone Griddle.

Chicken diced and seasoned for the chicken cheesesteaks!

Nothing crazy here. Canned mushrooms about to be drained of their juices.

I prepared my chicken cheesesteak just like I did back in college; with extra mayo and Texas Pete hot sauce. And I had to enjoy it with my favorite beer! It came out perfect!

With these, dinner came out extra good!

  • Good job. Chicken cheesesteak has been my go-to for a lonnnnng time. These days I'd probably let a few drops of Cholula green fall into my sandwich for zest. but back in the day it was all about the cheese (provolone). Love how you are enjoying your Blackstone. :)

  • It will not make me step away, but it will add another cheese steak sandwich to my list. Embrace the power of "and!"

    • I like it! Nothing will usurp a beefy cheesesteak! But this is pretty damn good. Especially with the Texas Pete!

    • Texas Pete? A man of discerning tastes, I see. I don't even know if I can get that in my part of the country, but I can see that it would go well. I make do with Tapatio and Sriracha.
