A delicious, homemade sandwich that rivals the sandwich shop! Chipotle Chicken Cheesesteak Sandwiches have chicken, bell pepper, and onion piled high and topped with melty cheese and a zesty chipotle mayo!
Do you ever see an item on a menu and think, I could totally make that at home? Well that’s how this recipe started. If you follow on instagram you may have seen this post. Long story short, an unfortunate experience at a sub shop led me to recreating one of their sandwiches. Thus Chipotle Chicken Cheesesteak Sandwiches were born. The results were so good, I knew I had to share!
Ingredients in Chipotle Chicken Cheesesteak Sandwiches
- Chicken: I used boneless, skinless breasts, thinly sliced.
- Green Bell pepper
- Sweet Yellow Onion
- Cheese: Pepper Jack or Provolone
- Buns: I love Schar Gluten-free Ciabatta Rolls , this time I tried the multigrain version and I really liked them!
- Homemade Chipotle Mayo: A.K.A. your new favorite condiment and the star of this show!
Making the Cheesesteak Sandwiches
First things first, whip up some Chipotle Mayo! Start with your favorite store-bought mayo, then mix in some chipotle sauce and spices. It’s really that simple and adds huge flavor!
Next sauté strips of thinly sliced chicken breast, onions, and bell pepper. I love a cast-iron pan for this!
Once the sauce is made and the chicken and veggies sautéed, it’s time to assemble the sandwiches!!
- Toast your favorite roll, I did this under the broiler. This time I used Schar’s gluten-free Multigrain Ciabatta Roll and I really liked them, by the way!
- Pile the chicken and veggies high on your favorite toasted roll.
- Top with cheese, pepper jack or provolone are two great options!
- Pop it back under the broiler to melt the cheese a bit.
- Slather the sauce on the top half of the bun. Close the lid and… devour!
Not only are these sandwiches super delicious, they’re easy to make! You could feasibly have this meal on the table in about 30 minutes. It’s great for lunch or dinner and the leftovers heat up very nicely!
