I’ve mentioned it before, but there is an awesome little restaurant near our house called Moochie’s, and I just can’t get enough of their food. Their subs are the best I’ve ever had! They also make the best fries, and the jalapeño sauce they serve with their subs and fries is to die for. Whenever Geoff and I are trying to figure out somewhere fun to pick up lunch, Moochie’s is always at the top of my list. The other night I was craving my beloved chicken philly cheesesteak sandwich from Moochie’s, and decided to give it a go at home using ingredients I had in the fridge.
The resulting sandwiches weren’t exactly the same as Moochie’s, but they were super easy and delicious, and totally satisfied my cravings! We both loved them so much we had them again a few days later, and they were just as tasty the second time around. These make a perfect dinner that’s ready in under 30 minutes. Yum!
Easy Chicken Philly Sandwiches
1-2 teaspoons olive oil
1 medium onion, thinly sliced
1 bell pepper, thinly sliced
2 cups cooked chicken, thinly sliced or shredded
lemon pepper seasoning, to taste
4 sandwich rolls, sliced lengthwise (I used bolillo rolls)
6 slices of American cheese, cut into triangles (or any cheese you like, but American cheese is supposed to be more authentic)
Preheat the broiler. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and bell pepper, and cook until crisp tender, then add the chicken and lemon pepper and cook until heated through. Divide the chicken mixture among the rolls, and top each with three triangles of cheese. Broil until the cheese is melted and the rolls are lightly browned. (Watch carefully so the rolls don’t burn!) Enjoy!
