Easy Chicken Cutlet Sandwich

Philadelphia doesn’t only make the best cheesesteaks.  There is also the chicken cutlet sandwich….with sharp provolone and roasted red peppers or broccoli rabe and slathered with roasted red pepper mayo all on fresh Italian bread.

It’s not a complicated recipe.  It’s just the blending of flavors that combine perfectly to create an amazing sandwich.  My husband is not a broccoli rabe fan so we make ours with the roasted red peppers. Check out how we do it..

Just a little disclaimer.  I’m not a food stylist. My food pictures just will not be laid out perfectly with the perfect backdrop etc.  My main concern is cooking for my family and sharing our fairly simple recipes with you guys.  The thought of primping food for the perfect photo just freaks me totally out.  I’m happy if the food makes it to the table and its warm.

Let me know if you make this little beauty of a sandwich and what you think!
