In our house, sandwiches are a popular dinner and these Oven Baked Chicken Cheesesteak Sandwiches are one of the top favorites. Easy-to-make with sliced chicken and cheese, plus the addition of bell peppers, onions, and mushrooms.
I believe I’ve talked before about my love of sandwiches. Cold or hot…I love them all. And I don’t think I could ever get tired of sandwiches either. Sandwiches and me get along beautifully. Luckily, the same is true of sandwiches and everyone in my family. My kids seriously get excited for hand-held dinners.
When it comes to hot sandwiches, there’s a few that we make frequently in our house: Oven Baked Meatball Sandwiches, Grilled Cheese, and Philly Cheesesteaks. The recipe I’m sharing today is a chicken version of our Philly Cheesesteaks called….what else? Oven Baked Chicken Cheesesteaks. It’s an easy dinner idea that’s perfect for hectic weeknights or munching on while watching the game during the weekend.
To start, I used Castle Wood Oven Roasted Chicken Breast Sliced Lunch Meat, available at Sam’s Club, that I bought on a recent shopping trip. I opened this package and turned it out onto a cutting board where I gave the entire pile of lunch meat about 3 cuts with a knife — I didn’t want to chop it, but I wanted to make the pieces a bit smaller. I used this entire package for 6 sandwiches.
For the cheese, I used Castle Wood Provolone Sliced Cheese, also available at Sam’s Club. I used half (1 pound) of this package.
I sliced bell peppers and onion. I also used 8 ounces of sliced mushrooms.
In a large skillet, the bell peppers and onions were sauteed in a bit of olive oil until tender-crisp. Then the mushrooms were adding and cooked until slightly softened. The heat was turned off and the Castle Wood Chicken Lunch Meat was gently folded into the vegetable mixture. Once that was combined, the cheese was cut into quarters and folded into the mixture. If necessary, turn the heat on low to help the cheese melt.
I use hoagie rolls that are either whole and I cut them so one side is still attached. Sometime I buy pre-cut hoagie rolls, but I make sure to buy ones that have one side attached.
I made our Oven Baked Chicken Cheesesteak Sandwiches so that they were individually wrapped in foil. To do this, I teared a piece of foil that will be large enough to wrap around the sandwich and spray it with a bit of cooking spray (this helps to make sure the cheese won’t stick to it). I lay the foil on the counter, sprayed side upwards, and place my roll on the foil. Then, the Chicken Cheesesteak mixture is added to the roll.
Two slices of Castle Wood Provolone Cheese are torn in half and placed on top of the Chicken Cheesesteak mixture.
Then the entire sandwich is rolled up in foil.
The foil wrapped sandwiches are set on a baking sheet and baked in the oven until hot, toasty, and melty. When they are done, you can unwrap and enjoy!Print
