I love Philly cheesesteak. But trying to cut down on red meat, Eat a lot more chicken. Subbing the chicken for the beef makes this sandwich just as tasty. I use mayo as a condiment, but substitute with what you desire. You can also sub the spices you use to boil chicken to tailor to your tastes. Hope you enjoy!
