Crockpot Chicken Philly Cheesesteak

This crockpot chicken Philly cheesesteak recipe is the perfect warm weather meal.  It’s made with moist chicken breasts, peppers and onions, and provolone cheese.  What could be better?!

Crockpot Chicken Philly Cheesesteak
Contributing post from Jill @ The Galactagoddess

Many years ago, I came across a restaurant that had a chicken Philly cheesesteak on their menu. I typically don’t order chicken out, because we eat so much of it at home, but I couldn’t pass it up. And boy, am I glad I didn’t!

Thankfully, Kelly has given me the opportunity to think about all of the foods that I would love to translate into quick, easy crockpot meals for busy families like my own.  That chicken Philly cheesesteak came to mind, and this crockpot version is definitely a keeper!

If you’re feeling overly ambitious, you can make your own rolls. My husband likes to use our bread maker to make French bread dough, then bakes two baguettes in the oven, and slices accordingly…but any fresh roll will do!

Crockpot Chicken Philly Cheesesteak


  • Author: Kelly McNelis
  • Yield: 6 servings

Description

Cook fresh or freeze to cook later.  You can use as much or as little of the sauce as you would like, depending on how soggy you like your roll. I also like to serve it on the side and use it as a dip. Best served with homemade sweet potato fries!


Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons corn starch
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into strips
  • 1 large onion; sliced
  • 3 bell peppers (the more colorful the better), cut into strips
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 clove of garlic, minced
  • 6 slices of provolone cheese

Directions

  1. Mix corn starch into chicken broth.
  2. Place all ingredients EXCEPT for cheese in crockpot.
  3. Cook on “low” setting for 6 hours, or until chicken is cooked through and peppers are soft.
  4. Lay cheese over mixture.
  5. Cook on “low” for additional 10 minutes or until cheese is melted.
  6. Serve on a fresh, hot roll.

To Freeze and Cook Later

  1. Label a gallon-sized plastic freezer bag with the name of the recipe, cooking instructions, and use-by date.
  2. Add all ingredients to freezer bag, except cheese. (You can add broth and cornstarch.)
  3. Remove as much air as possible, seal, and freeze for up to three months.
  4. When ready to cook, following directions above.

I don’t know if it works on a PC, but on a macbook when you do command-P and the print window pops up, you can go to the bottom left corner and there is ‘PDF’ with a little down arrow next to it. Click on the arrow and you can select ‘save as PDF.’ Then a new little window will pop up to let you name it and decided where to save it to. Voila!

You can copy and paste it to a word doc and save it. Put your cursor just to the left of where the text starts, hold the shift key and keep holding cursor down until you get to the end of the text. It all should be highlighted blue. Then press Ctrl and the letter C. This copies the text. Go to a opened and blank Word doc and with the cursor at the beginning of the text, press Ctrl and the letter V. That pastes the text into your Word doc. Then do a Save As to save it… Read more »

Thanks so much for taking the time to put this site together with so much free and accessible information for newbies like me to the kitchen. Teaching and being a mom to a toddler forced me for too long to have to eat thrown together meals or eat out too often and this summer I get to realize my love my cooking. I plan to buy your book.

Thanks again.

No one from Philly ever makes a cheesesteak with chicken, or bell peppers, or provolone!! This is one of those confused mashups that people who’ve never actually had a cheesesteak think it should be. It seems more like a chicken parm sandwich than a cheeseteak, and you’re not going to find one anywhere in Philadelphia.

As a Philly native, I can assure that you are most incorrect! Gino’s, Tony’s and Lee’s all sell chicken cheesesteaks about as often as they sell beef ones. Our secret however is the cheese whiz vs. other types of cheese.

That’s GENO’s, not Gino’s, and it’s a tourist trap that opened in 1966 to capitalize on the cheesesteak business, not an authentic steak shop, so I rest my case. Here’s a picture of the circus that is Geno’s: comment image

I still say this is a chicken parmigiana sandwich without the breading, NOT a cheesesteak.

The chicken surprised me too! My husband loves Philly Cheesesteaks so I was already wondering what beef to use!

Glo. Dude. Is that productive? Is that a productive thing to say to this nice woman who is giving you free recipes? It’s not just her. The rest of the country does it. And you know what? You probably call something the wrong name or eat something wrong where one of us come from. No one wants to read about ask if your complaints and nagging about your hood a$$ town. This world doesn’t revolve around you. Either read her recipe and say please and thank you, or remain silent.
