Default Chicken Cheesesteak Saute

I had this for dinner tonight. I'm sure this could also be made with lean, thinly sliced beef. Enjoy!

1/4 Cup Light italian dressing (NSA)
2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts or 6 chicken breast tenderloins
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp onion powder
1/4 cup sliced mushrooms
1/4 cup sliced onions
1/4 cup sliced bell pepper (red or green)
1 TBSP olive oil
2 slices light provolone cheese

Marinate chicken breasts in italian dressing, in a plastic bag, for at least two hours; drain well. After marinating, heat olive oil in a skillet on medium high heat for about two minutes. Sprinkle chicken with garlic and onion powder. Add chicken to skillet, and sear chicken until brown on both sides (about 2 minutes per side). Add mushrooms, onions, and bell pepper. Cook for 5 - 7 minutes longer (7 - 8 minutes if using thick breasts). Tear cheese into small pieces and place on top of mixture. Place top on skillet and let sit for one to two minutes.

Sounds yummy. I can't find reduced fat provolone anywhere.

Sargento makes a reduced fat provolone, I can usually find it at Walmart.

This recipe sounds good! It would be great on whole wheat tortillas or as a stuffing in pita bread on Phase 2.

I'm sure you could use reduced fat swiss or mozzarella and it would come out just as good.

Oh, wow, GEM, this sounds delicious. I still have some chicken breasts for tomorrow night, I think this will be what I do with them if I can find the cheese. Love provolone, so yummy.

Had this for dinner last night, it was great! The only thing I did differently was that I removed the chicken after it was seared and used a little chickenbroth in the veggies to soften them up. Extremely good!
Thanks!

I have put this on my Phase 1 menu and plan on having this for dinner one night. I might use swiss cheese instead so I don't have to get a bunch of different cheeses, since I'm on a budget.

Your recipe sounds delicious!

Tried this tonight, very quick and easy and I am all about that. Tasty too, and the kids gave it a thumbs up!

Making this for dinner tonight with garlic wilted spinach - I've been looking forward to it all day. Seems very comfort food-y with all the cheese and stuff.

I must say, this is one of my favorite phase 1 meals. I absolutely love it. It is so comforting with the cheese. I had it tonight with spinach and spaghetti squash. Delicious!

This sounds really good. Can you give me a brand of dressing? I haven't been able to find may that are labeled 'no sugar added'.

Thanks!

For dressings, you may use one that is no more than 2 grams of sugar per serving. Newman's Own and Ken's Light are two that I use often.

I actually prefer to make my own dressing. Here's a good recipe (substituting splenda for the sugar): http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Creamy-...-I/Detail.aspx
