Secret Recipe Club - Chicken Cheesesteaks
Secret Recipe Club time! This month I was given So Tasty So Yummy by Katie, and let me tell you I was really spoilt for choice when it came to picking a recipe. She has some amazing things on there!
Her Sea Salt Peanut Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies are on my must-bake list for another time, as is Katie's mum's Chocolate Cheesecake (swoon).
But for this month I really wanted an easy dinner to add into our rotation and her Chicken Cheesesteaks fit the bill perfectly.
I've always been intrigued by 'cheesesteaks' and used to imagine it was some sort of cheese that was crumbed and fried (how awesome would that be!). A little research showed it was actually thinly sliced steak covered with melted cheese. Katie has a chicken version on her blog which is much more us as we always have chicken in the freezer.
I made a few minor changes to the recipe, using chicken thighs instead of breast, red capsicum instead of green, red onion and mozzarella instead of provolone.
And the verdict? We LOVED this. So quick and easy and sooo tasty. Perfect for a quick dinner or weekend lunch. I topped ours with homemade dijonnaise (a mixture of mayonnaise and dijon mustard) and it was absolutely delicious! Definitely a keeper.
Recipe from So Tasty So Yummy
1 tbs olive oil
2 large chicken thigh fillets
1/2 red onion, finely sliced
1/2 red capsicum, finely sliced
Worcestershire sauce, a few dashes to taste
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
4 long white bread rolls
Salt and pepper to taste
Split the rolls and place under the grill for 1-2 minutes to toast.
Thinly slice the chicken (you can freeze the pieces for about 15 minutes first to make this easier). Saute the onion and capsicum in the oil for a few minutes until starting to soften, then add the sliced chicken and cook until the chicken is starting to brown. Add the salt, pepper and worcestershire sauce and cook for another minute or so until the chicken is cooked through.
Place the chicken mixture into each roll, top with mozzarella and grill until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
