Bacon Blue Chicken Philly Cheese Steak

This, my friends, is the kind of dinner that happens when hubs decides what I’ll be making. hahah

Bacon. Blue Cheese. Chicken. Philly. Cheese Steaks.

Yes, yes, and yes!

I’ve always been a huge fan of Chicken Philly’s…

and of bacon and blue cheese…

So, when hubs suggested a mash-up of the two, I was totally down!

I seriously have no words… this was so. flipping. good.

I mean come on, bacon and blue cheese were MADE for each other and the addition of chicken, peppers, and onions… Good stuff, people. Good stuff.

You should probably keep it classy like me and serve these up with some good ol’ fashioned tater tots! Yep.

Get on it.

And come back tomorrow… the return of cocktail Friday!!!!!!!!!!!!! 🙂

Bacon Blue Chicken Philly Cheese Steak

Yield: 2 large sandwiches

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 45 minutes

Total Time: 1 hour

Chicken Philly Cheese Steaks with a twist... bacon and blue cheese!


1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/8-1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 small red pepper, cored and thinly sliced
1 small green pepper, cored and thinly sliced
1 small onion, peeled and thinly sliced
1 pound boneless skinless chicken breast, sliced
4 slices thick cut bacon, cooked crisp
2 ounces crumbled blue cheese
2 slices provolone
2 6-8" sub rolls


Preheat 1 tablespoons of olive oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium high heat. Mix together the salt, garlic powder, black pepper, and cayenne in a small dish and set aside. When the oil is nice and hot, add the pepper and onions and saute, stirring often, until the peppers and onions are soft and beginning to brown (15-20 minutes). Season with 1 teaspoon of the seasoning mix. Remove from skillet and set aside until ready to use.

Add another tablespoon of oil to the pan. Sprinkle remaining spice mixture over the sliced chicken. Add seasoned chicken to pan when oil is nice and hot. Saute until chicken is cooked completely (there should be no pink remaining). Cooking time will vary depending on size of chicken.

Slice sub rolls horizontally (not quite all the way through) and spread open. Place in oven and broil for 30-45 seconds to allow the inside to crisp slightly. Remove from oven and add half the chicken to each roll and top with 1/2 of the pepper mixture. Add 2 slices of crispy cooked bacon to each sandwich then sprinkle them both with 1 ounce of blue cheese. Lastly, top each sandwich with a slice of provolone cheese and place under the broiler until cheese in melted and the roll is golden brown (just a few minutes - keep a close eye).

Serve hot!!!! TO. DIE. FOR.

    Oh my – you’ve got so many Kobes in this sandwich (that’s what the boyfriend always says when there’s so many all-stars in one dish)! And as Rachel said, those tots on the side are also incredibly inviting.
