Chicken Philly Question

I have had some chicken phillys at different places and they all seem to cook the same style chicken. They are almost like chicken steakums. Square patties that they chop up which cook fast.

Does anyone know a company that sells these or anywhere I can buy them? I have never seen them anywhere. Whenever I slice normal chicken thin it never comes out as good.

Thanks

    There's a place here in Chicago, Big Boy's Gyros at the corner of Western Avenue and Addison, that prepares a Chicken Philly. No processed squares of chicken here though. They use fresh, bite sized chunks of chicken quickly cooked on the griddle with a mess of onions and green peppers (optional; I prefer mine with just onions). The cheese goes on at the last minute before they plop the whole thing into a toasted, crispy garlic bread loaf where the cheese melts into the chicken and onions. It's a pretty darned good sandwich.

    Technically, yes. But I don't think I've ever heard them called anything other than chicken cheesesteaks here in Philly.

    I too love chicken cheesesteaks but have been unable to find the meat to makemy own. I finally bought some chicken tenders, sliced them really thin (using my mandolin while the chix was not fully thawed). Then carmalized some onions and then threw the chicken in. It comes out good.

    To make your own chicken cheesesteaks just go out and buy some boneless chicken breast. Wash and freeze them. Slice very thin while still frozen.
    Fry up with a little olive oil and onions on a medium hot pan. When done add the cheese of your choice and serve on a hoagie roll. Yum!

    There are some food items that just should NOT be messed with!! A hoagie is a mess of paper thin Italian meats, provolone cheese, drizzle of olive oil, lettuce LEAVES (NOT shredded), sliced tomatoes, dill pickles and hot/sweet pickled peppers. AND the right roll... Amaroso's. There's NO SUCH THING as a tuna hoagie... it's a tuna sandwich in a hoagie roll!

    Same thing goes for cheese steaks. It's BEEF, fried (or raw) onions, AMERICAN cheese, pickles, peppers, tomatoes and a touch of ketchup! Again the ROLL is key. If it's not BEEF, it's NOT a cheese steak!!

    In Baltimore they are called Chicken Cheese steaks.

    As for making them, a lot of grocery stores sell chicken in scallopini form. You can also make your own by taking a chicken breast and pounding it out. You'll want to work the meat so it spreads outward so it has an even thickness.

    I have to be honest in all my travels and tastes it is tough to beat an Ishkabibbles Chicken Cheesesteak and the reason is because it is just literally sliced up breast meat smothered in cheese on a decent roll. The Roll makes the sandwich. the texture of the roll and how the cheese adheres to that roll without overpowering the taste of the meat inside.

    If you have a good roll and good hot melted cheese. Breast meat sliced and cut up would do just fine.

    The way we make them at my work, and we call them "Chicken Philly", is to grill (on the flat top), a boneless chicken breast, then slice it very thin, add the peppers and onions, and melt sliced swiss cheese on top.. served on a soft hoagie roll.
    They are very popular, although many people ask if the meat is shredded...

    The only thing that disturbs me is the reference to them being square patties. So the name "chicken phillys" really threw me off. First of all, I didn't even know that they originated in this area! That's how much I take our local food for granted - either that or the fact that I just really don't eat chicken cheese steaks. However, back to the "square patty" thing: no. That just doesn't sound like real food to me - but if that's all they have...You use chicken breast and shred it to bits; that much I know.

    QVC.com sells frozen Bella brand cheese steaks. They are a distributor to a lot of cheese steak vendors in the Philly area. Once and a while they also sell their frozen chicken cheese steaks. I searched QVC's site and only found the regular. I have had their regular and they are pretty good-get a great roll and some whiz, throw on some onions and it is the closest thing to South Philly that I can get here in New Hampshire.

    Keep an eye as I know they sell the chicken ones every few months. Maybe you could even E-mail QVC or see if Bella sells them directly.
