  • 2 tbsp. Avocado Oil* (divided)
  • 8 oz. Chicken Breasts or Chicken Thighs (boneless / trimmed of excess fat)
  • Salt & Pepper
  • 1/2 tsp. Garlic Powder
  • 1 tsp. Italian Seasoning
  • 1/2 medium Red Bell Pepper
  • 1/2 medium Green Bell Pepper
  • 1/2 large Onion**
  • 4 slices Provolone Cheese***
  • 2 Sausage Rolls****


  • Season the chicken all over with salt, pepper, and 1/4 tsp. garlic powder. Let the seasoned chicken rest at room temperature while you prepare the other ingredients.
  • Thinly slice the bell peppers and onions. Set aside.
  • Heat one tablespoon of oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook the chicken for 3-4 minutes per side (until cooked through). Transfer the chicken to a cutting board and tent with foil.
  • Add the remaining oil to the skillet. Add the bell peppers, onions, remaining garlic powder, Italian seasoning, and a pinch each of salt and pepper. Turn the heat up to medium-high.
  • Cook the vegetables until tender and slightly charred, about 6-8 minutes. Turn the heat down to medium
  • Thinly slice the chicken into strips. Stir the chicken into the pan with the vegetables.
  • Divide the chicken and vegetable mixture into two separate piles in the pan (preferably in a shape resembling the bread you are using.) Cover each pile with provolone cheese, and let the cheese melt over the tops of the piles.
  • Warm the sausage rolls in the microwave for about 20 seconds.
  • Scoop one of the chicken and vegetable piles into a warm sausage roll. Repeat with remaining sausage roll. Serve hot!


*Vegetable oil, canola oil, or olive oil can be used in place of avocado oil.
**Yellow or White onion will work for this recipe.
***Provolone, Cheese Whiz, or White American cheese are all great cheese options for Philly sandwiches!
****I used these Artesano Sausage Rolls from Sara Lee and they were perfect. You could also use a traditional Amoroso roll, deli sub, or hoagie.
