A Philly Chicken Cheese Steak with a Healthy Twist



Philly Chicken Cheese Steak

You don’t have to worry about the extra calories that come with a regular philly cheese steak because BistroMD takes this traditional dish and makes it delicious AND healthy.

This delicious staple in American culture has a rich and flavorful history, dating back to the early 1930’s in Philadelphia.

Two brothers, Harry Olivieri and Pat Olivieri, were Italian immigrants who sold hot dogs and sandwiches on a local corner of a busy Philadelphia intersection.

Tired of just selling hot dogs and sandwiches, Pat told Harry to go to a local butcher and buy some freshly sliced beef. Harry bought the beef, brought it back, and then the brothers experimented with cooking the beef on the grill, and mixed it with onions.

To keep up their “sandwich” image, the brothers piled the freshly grilled beef and onions on some rolls and began serving it to different people.

Twenty years later, an employee of Harry and Pats grew tired of just the beef and onions, and decided to add come cheese to the mix.

The Philly cheese steak was born that day, and the sandwich has become a favorite of both Philadelphians and others across the country, alike.

We can’t offer quite the same recipe as Harry and Pat, but the BistroMD chefs have created a delicious philly cheese steak inspired entrée that can help you lose weight, but still tastes great.

Instead of the traditional beef, and to keep things healthy, our chefs take lean cuts of grilled chicken breast and simmer them in a sensational mix of philly-inspired spices.

Once the chicken has been grilled to perfection, it’s blanketed with a julienne of bell pepper and crispy onion, and topped with a feather shred of part-skim mozzarella. To add some color to the plate, our chicken cheese steak is served with slow-roasted strips of shredded spaghetti squash.
