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..
Boneless chicken breast cutlet(pounded or purchased thin)
Italian bread crumbs
grated parmesan cheese
roasted red peppers in a jar
sharp provolone cheese sliced
In a large fry pan coat the bottom with olive oil and heat
Dip chicken in eggs, coat in bread crumbs, place in fry pan, and brown each side and cook until chicken is done
In a food processor or blender simply add about a 1/2 cup of mayo and 3-4 roasted red peppers. Blend until smooth and creamy
Now you will put together your sandwiches
Take about an 8 inch piece of your Italian Bread and slice in half length wise
Slather both sides generously with roasted red pepper mayo
Take each piece of cooked chicken cutlet and place a couple of roasted red peppers on top and then a slice or 2 of sharp provolone and place in microwave and cook long enough to just melt the cheese
Place piece of chicken between each half of Italian bread
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!
