How To Make Chicken Philly Cheesesteak

Slice off the stem of the onion and peel the entire onion. Cut into slices, then dice.

Pour olive oil into a pan on the stovetop. Turn the heat to high.

While you wait for the pan to heat up, dice the bell pepper. Start by slicing it in half and removing the membranes and seeds. Then slice it into strips, and finally dice into pieces.

By this point, the oil will probably be sizzling. Reduce the heat to medium high. Add the peppers to the onions and stir to mix everything together.

Next, trim the chicken and cut it into small pieces. Add to the skillet. Season everything with salt, pepper, Italian seasoning, and garlic powder. Toss to coat chicken, pepper, and onion in seasonings.

Turn heat back up to medium high (if necessary) and cook everything, stirring every minute, until the chicken is cooked through. This should take about 12 minutes. The chicken will be golden brown on the outside.

Turn off the heat and add the cheese on top. The heat from the pan will melt the cheese perfectly. Add a cover to the skillet and wait about a minute until the cheese is melted.
