Low Carb Chicken Philly Cheesesteak Recipe
Several years ago, Longhorn’s Restaurant used to serve a Chicken Philly Cheesesteak Sandwich that my hubby and I loved. I don’t know what brought it to my mind last week, but I thought it would be easy to recreate a Low Carb Chicken Philly Cheesesteak Skillet meal that would be amazing. I bought the thin cut chicken that I cut into small strips with my poultry shears so that it would cook faster. Sometimes our days get so crazy, I blink my eyes, and it’s dinnertime, so I like dinner options that are quick and easy like this one. We loved it so much; I made it twice last week. I served it with asparagus the first time and broccoli the next. You could also keep it simple with just a garden salad.
If the rest of your family isn’t following a Low Carb or Ketogenic Diet, this is an easy meal that works for everyone. You can simply add sub rolls for those who aren’t eating a Low Carb lifestyle. Keto Chicken Philly Cheesesteak is a fantastic one-skillet meal that is simple to make, and it tastes delicious. You could also grab a rotisserie chicken if you are in a pinch for time and use as well. I have included links to other great Low Carb Chicken Recipes below the recipe box if you are looking for further inspiration.
Keto Chicken Philly Cheesesteak
This Low Carb Chicken Philly Cheesesteak one-skillet meal is simple and delicious!
- 1 1/2 lbs boneless skinless chicken breasts cut into small strips
- 1 green pepper sliced
- 1 onion sliced
- 2 garlic cloves minced
- 3 tablespoons butter
- 7 slices provolone cheese
- 1 teaspoon Italian Seasoning
- 1/4 teaspoon parsley
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp pepper
In a hot cast iron skillet, melt one tablespoon of butter and add peppers, onion, and garlic.
Saute until the onions and peppers are translucent then remove veggies from the skillet and set aside.
Melt the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter in the cast iron skillet then add chicken, Italian seasoning, and salt/pepper.
Allow to sear on each side, then cover and cook on medium-low until the chicken is cooked all the way through. I use a meat thermometer to test doneness.
Once the chicken is done, add the pepper, onion, and garlic back to the skillet. Cook on low for 2 minutes.
Place provolone cheese slices on top of the chicken and veggie mixture to cover, and then place the skillet in the oven on broil for 1-3 minutes until the cheese is melted thoroughly.
