Wrapping Up the Weekend with Chicken Phillies

I have had a serious hunkering for a good sandwich lately.  There is a cheesesteak place here in Spokane that I love called Brucies.  I love their chicken!  It’s like melt in your mouth yummy-ness that I just can’t describe.

However, since we are trying to save money and eat in, the only way I was going to get a good Philly sandwich, is if I made it myself… so that’s just what I did!  I didn’t adapt this from any recipe… just sort of “winged” it and it turned out awesome – so of course, I must share!

Tera’s Shredded Chicken Philly Sandwich

You’ll need:

6 sub rolls

3 boneless skinless chicken breasts

16oz low sodium chicken broth

3 tbsp minced garlic

1 tsp Mrs Dash Extra Spicy

1 tbsp hoisin sauce

1tsp sesame oil

1 tsp low sodium soy sauce

1 tsp rice vinegar

1 tbsp worcestershire sauce

1/2 medium yellow onion thinly sliced

1/2 green pepper thinly sliced

1/2 red pepper thinly sliced

black pepper

6 slices provolone cheese

Mayo (Optional – I used a very thin coating of low fat mayo)

Optional: Mustard, BBQ, Tabasco or any other fixing you prefer 🙂

First slow cook the chicken by placing the breasts, broth, garlic, Mrs Dash and a dash of black pepper together in the crock-pot and cooking on high for 4 hours.

Once the chicken is done, turn the crock-pot to low, drain the liquid from the crock pot and shred the chicken.  Mix together the soy sauce, hoisin sauce, sesame oil, worcestershire sauce and rice vinegar in a cup.  Once blended, pour over the shredded chicken and mix.  Keep it on the low heat until it is ready to be served.

Coat a frying pan with Extra Virgin Olive Oil.  Begin to saute the onion and peppers on a medium heat.  Add a dash of black pepper.  Saute until the vegetables are no longer crisp – until the onions begin to turn translucent.

Lightly coat one side of the buns with mayo.  Then, cut or tear provolone slices in half and place them across the length of the buns.  Add the onions and peppers.  Add the chicken mixture.  Let the heat from the chicken, onions and peppers slightly melt the cheese.  Add any other condiments you might like (I highly suggest a little tabasco).  Eat.  Enjoy.
