"Homemade" Chicken Cheese Steaks

Do me a favor. Buy these. Today.

Get ready for another easy, lazy meal. Lazy because I don't do anything. (No really. You'll see.) "Homemade" chicken cheesesteaks. And my god are they good. Better than any chicken cheesesteak from any takeout restaurant. The best part is, you control the fat content AND you can be sure no one passed gas on it (anyone see that YouTube Domino's video? Who knew it was a federal offense to fuck with someone's food?)

Anyway, get that visual out of your head quickly because you are about to watch something beautiful appear before your very eyes. First you start with the peppers and onions.

Then in a separate skillet, you add the block of chicken-y goodness.

And cook until... cooked through. God, I am bad at this!

That is Dan's hand because at this point I am just snapping pictures and drinking an Ecto Cooler and vodka.

Just kidding! It's actually a limeade and vodka but wouldn't it be awesome if it really was Ecto Cooler? It seriously does look pretty radioactive. It's definitely not Simply Limeade by any means. It's the cheap crap.

Where was I? Oh yes. Chicken cheese steaks.

Next you simply add American cheese to the top of the meat and let melt for a about a minute or two.

Then Dan likes to get fancy and place the roll on top and then he does this cool thing where he flips it over with the meat inside. I usually just sit there and sip my Ecto Cooler.

And then Ta-da! There you have it. Better than take-out (and I try to pretend, healthy) chicken cheesesteaks. God this post was long. Sorry!


  1. Jodi do NOT apologise. This is what I need! Step by step instructions with pictures. I WILL make these thank you very much!

  2. I've had those bitches before. De-lish. Or as Liv would say, "Delectable". I'm not kidding. She says that now.

    I ate my homemade chicken cheesesteaks minus the peppers and onions because you know how I feel about onions and sometimes peppers, though not always with peppers.

    Ecto-cooler. Fucking ECTOCOOLER? I haven't had that in 20 years. I miss it. The ambiguous taste. How you never could put your finger on what it reminded you of.

    Anyway, I really enjoy watching your process. It wasn't too long. It was just right.

  3. Alisha, yes you must try them. They are great.

    Liv is so smart. I didn't know what delectable meant until I was 21! (Just kidding)

    I'm going to get you to eat onions if it is the last thing I do. I'm going to sneak 'em in everything you eat.

  4. You know I went to the store for the sole purpose of buying those chicken cheesesteak thingies and freakin Genuardis doesn't carry them. None at all! I'm so pissed.
