Chicken Cheese Steaks

September 8, 2018


You're in for a surprise. This isn't exactly your "typical" chicken cheese steak. Just about the only commonality is the chicken and the hoagie roll it rides in. Now if you want to hit that back button and never look back, I don't blame you. But you'll be missing out on a flavor combo you wish your local steak joint was serving up. So why not stick around, read a little further, and start jotting down that shopping list for later.
