Chicken Philly Love!

I cooked a lot this weekend.  The problem was I was craving all the wrong food and to save money and my day of treadmill love, I decided to try and DIY my food with a healthier twist lol.

So I wanted Penn Station's Chicken Philly...without the greasy bag.

I had frozen chicken in stock so I threw those in a skillet full of water and a little bit of olive oil and salt.  I covered it and let it boil for about 20 min.  (They were cooked through and tender enough to shred).  I cut them up to chunks and put them aside.
I then sauteed some onion and mushrooms (I would have done some green and/or red pepper too if I had some on hand).   
I then added the chicken and seasoned with: poultry seasoning, black pepper and seasoned salt.
I then added a few slices of swiss cheese on top, shut off the heat and covered the skillet to melt the cheese. 
Meanwhile I took the hoagie and buttered it (I Can't Believe It's Not Butter) then grilled in on the stove. 
I cut up some Romaine lettuce and a tomato (Matt doesn't like tomato so I slice it very thin and hide them in the fold of the sandwich...what?!  I want my hubby to grow up big and strong!

I then added the chicken mix to the sandwich and paired it with some hash browns. 
He loved it. Tomatoes and all.


  1. OMG!! This is sooo funny!! You hid the tomatoes!! How clever!!! :)

    That sandwich looks amazing!

    I did a big cooking thing this weekend too! I will have to blog about it!!! :0)

  2. That last picture of Matt is hysterical. And the hidden-tomato-project? Classic.

    You can come over and cook for me ANY TIME you'd like- you know that, right? :)

  3. I am SO making this. It looks awesome!

  4. Aww that's hilarious, our men are like big kids sometimes :) I love me some Penn Station, just had it last night actually :) But of course a healthier version would be nice! Thanks for the idea!
