I’m back with more philly cheesesteak!!!  Now do you believe me when I say “I’ll never give up my quest for the ultimate low carb philly cheesesteak recipe”?  First there wasLow Carb Philly Cheesesteak Cups, next there was Philly Cheesesteak Stuffed Mushrooms and then Low Carb Philly Cheesesteak Bowl!  Now my fellow cheesesteak lovers, I give you my low carb chicken-based version. ♥      

 

This recipe is perfect if you are cooking for either low carb eaters or people with diabetes and also for those who have no diet restrictions.  Just add in a hoagie roll or hamburger bun and dinner is done.

 

It all begins with thinly sliced chicken breasts.  I sliced my chicken partially frozen which helps tremendously with getting the super thin slices I wanted.  If your chicken is fresh or thawed, simply place it back in the freezer for 15-20 minutes to get it to a semi-frozen state. (You can slice the chicken breasts without freezing them, it just makes things a little easier)

Next, I added my seasonings to the raw sliced chicken and made sure all pieces were coated.  I let this sit a few minutes while I warmed up a little olive oil in my skillet.  (You could complete this step up to a day ahead of time if you’d like. Just store the chicken in fridge until your ready.)

 

When your olive oil is heated, add the chicken slices and spread them out.  I used a large skillet here and it allowed enough room for 2 large chicken breasts.  

 

As the chicken browns, continue spreading the pieces out and turning them so each side is nicely browned.       For this part, you want to keep the heat at a level that keeps the chicken lightly browning- I used medium and adjusted slightly up and down from there.  (Just try not to cook it too low or it will just steam in its juices instead of browning!)

Spread the chicken slices out and turn to get all sides brown.

After your chicken has browned, remove it from the skillet and add back more olive oil.  It won’t take long for the oil to heat, so go ahead and get those veggies in and stir until soft.  (I used frozen veggies to save time, feel free to use fresh!)   Add the chicken back to the skillet with the peppers and onions and stir to combine.

Guess what?  You’re almost there!!  Now lay sliced cheese over all and put a lid over this to melt.  (Take my advice and try not to use a clear lid because once you see that cheese starting to melt it gets way too tempting…)  Here I used sliced provolone, but you could also use mozzarella, pepper jack, etc.
