My family and I love a good Philly style cheesesteak.
My oven baked version uses most of the same ingredients, but I substitute thin slices of chicken for thin sliced beef.
But just because these sandwiches go skimpy on the fat and calories doesn’t mean they are low on taste!
They are deliciously seasoned, have a good HELPING of gooey provolone and mozzarella cheese, and are served on fluffy steak rolls.
One bite and you really won’t care they don’t have beef steak!
- Chicken breasts – You’ll need boneless, skinless variety, cut into thin strips. You could also use chicken tenderloins and cut them just a bit thinner if you prefer.
- Veggies – You’ll need both green bell peppers and a white onion cut into stripes with the seeds of the pepper removed.
- Extra virgin olive oil – You could use another light tasting oil if you prefer.
- Seasonings – To give the chicken and veggies flavor, you’ll need salt, freshly cracked black pepper, garlic power, smoked paprika, and Worcestershire sauce.
- Cheeses – You’ll need both provolone slices and mozzarella cheese sticks for this recipe.
- Large, fluffy hoagie rolls – I love fresh bakery hoagie rolls, but you could use your favorite brand if you prefer.
How to make
First, cover a large, rimmed sheet pan with aluminum foil and spread half of the olive oil evenly out over the foil. Set the pan aside.
Next, add the prepared peppers & onions to a large mixing bowl.
In another small bowl, whisk together the spices.
Sprinkle half of the spice mix over the veggies and then use your tongs to toss them to coat.
Next, sprinkle half the Worcestershire out over top and gently toss again to evenly coat.
Once the veggies are ready, transfer them to the prepared sheet pan.
Spread the mixture out evenly to cover all of the pan.
Next, add the chicken to the previously used large mixing bowl and sprinkle the rest of the seasoning blend over top and toss to coat and then sprinkle the rest of the Worcestershire out over top.
Give the chicken a final toss to coat.
Use a pair of tongs to set all of the chicken pieces on top of the veggies.
Make sure to give them a little space and to evenly space them out.
Place the pan in the oven and bake for 375° for 15 to 17 minutes.
As the chicken and veggies bake, shred the cheese sticks into thin strips and set aside.
About halfway through the baking process, carefully remove the pan from the oven and then spread the cheese strips evenly out over top.
With the cheese spread, return the sheet pan to the oven and broil the tray.
Make sure you keep an eye on it to avoid burning the cheese. It should melt and begin to turn golden brown in spots.
Carefully remove the pan from the oven and set aside.
On another sheet pan, place halved hoagie rolls in the upright position.
You should be able to fit four at a time depending on the size of your pan.
Next, spread mayo on the insides of the rolls on both sides in a thin layer.
Use a spatula to transfer 1/4 of the prepared chicken & veggie mixture to the bottom half of one of the prepared hoagie rolls.
Repeat until all the mixture’s been evenly divided between the remaining rolls.
Finally, top each with two slices of provolone cheese and return to the oven to broil.
Keep an eye on them and remove when the cheese has melted and the buns have toasted slightly.
Carefully transfer the cooked sandwiches to a waiting plate and serve them with your family’s favorite toppings or on their own.
Serving and storing
These cheesesteaks are best served fresh from the oven.
You can top them with your favorite toppings, like banana peppers, more cheese, raw onions, hot sauce, ketchup, mustard, more mayo, cheese whiz or anything that floats your boat!
These are best eaten fresh, but if you can’t finish your cheesesteak, I recommend wrapping it tightly in foil or plastic wrap and storing in the fridge for about 3 to 4 days.
To reheat, you can pop it back into an oven on warm until they warm through.
I also recommend storing the chicken, cheese, and veggies and then reheating them on a fresh bun.
They can get a bit weird in the fridge sometimes.
Tips and tricks
These baked chicken cheesesteaks are pretty easy to make, but if you have any questions, check out these tips and tricks.
- Keep an eye on the cheese once you add it. It can go from golden brown and deliciously melted to black and burned very quickly.
- Use really thin sliced chicken to help it cook faster.
- For an even more authentic Philly flavor, add cheese wiz on top of the sandwiches.
- I use green peppers and white onions, but you could use red bell peppers, red onions, or yellow onions for this recipe with similar results.
- Prefer a philly cheesesteak made with beef? Swap thinly sliced pieces of steak for the chicken instead.
