Directions 6 steps | 40 Minutes

Step 1

Make the chicken cheesesteak filling. In a pan over medium heat, melt ½ tablespoon of butter. Once the butter has melted, add the sliced bell peppers, onions, mushrooms, ¼ teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon of pepper. Sauté until the vegetables are lightly browned, about 3-4 minutes. Transfer the vegetables into a bowl and set them aside.

Step 2

In the same pan, add the remaining 1½ tablespoons butter, minced garlic, chopped chicken, garlic powder, onion powder, old bay seasoning, chili powder, ½ teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon of pepper. Cook for 6-8 minutes, until the chicken is golden and cooked through.

Step 3

Add the reserved cooked vegetables back into pan. Cook mixture for another 2-3 minutes, until heated through and remove the pan from the heat.

Step 4

Turn the oven to broil. If rolls are not pre-sliced, slice the roll ¾ way down the middle. Place the rolls on a sheet pan and broil the rolls in the oven on for 1 minute on each side.

Step 5

Place the chicken cheesesteak filling evenly on each roll and place two slices of provolone cheese on top of each roll.

Step 6

Place the sandwiches back in the broiler for 2 minutes or until the cheese is melted. Add your favorite toppings and enjoy!

If I could, I would give this recipe 10 stars! Everyone in my family loved it and asked for seconds. It was a home run with simple ingredients and quick & easy steps. I subbed celery salt and paprika for old bay's seasoning and we topped ours with hot sauce and they were delicious! Our picky eaters didn't even notice the mushrooms. I'll definitely be adding this to our dinner rotation.
