The Cheesesteak dates back to the 1930s when a Philadelphia hot dog vendor added some steak onto his grill, added this to a hotdog bun, topped it with cheese & gave it to a cab driver passing by. Legend has it right there, and then the Philly Cheesesteak was born. There have been many versions of this iconic dish created & topped with different ingredients.  

The dish is a low-carb, keto edition for this Philly special, filled with thinly sliced seasoned chicken thighs, caramelized onions, bell peppers, warm melted cheddar & provolone cheese sauce drizzled with keto BBQ sauce, all stuffed into a toasted crispy keto baguette. Warning, after you've consumed this Chicken Philly Cheesesteak, you will have feelings of nostalgia and pure bliss, and you may feel sudden urges to make it over and over again. The best part is with only ... you can.

Chicken Philly Cheesesteak Filling
Set up a large nonstick pan onto the stovetop and heat to high heat. 
Add one tablespoon of olive oil, allowing the oil to heat up. 
Add the chicken thighs to the pan, and sear the chicken thighs until golden brown on each side, using a pair of kitchen tongs to flip over.
Remove chicken from the pan, place it onto a plate, and set it aside. 
Return the nonstick pan to the stovetop, add the remaining olive oil, add the onions, turn the heat down to medium-low heat and allow the onions to caramelize for 5 minutes, stirring with a wooden spoon
Once the onions are caramelized, turn the heat back up to medium-high heat, add the bell peppers, and sauté for 2 minutes to cook the peppers through. 
Add the chicken thighs back into the pan and the remainder of the seasonings. 
Turn off the heat allowing the filling to marinade and stay warm in the pan. 
Cheese Sauce
Place an small saucepan onto the stovetop on medium heat, and add the heavy cream, bringing the cream to a low simmer for 1 minute. 
Turn off the heat, and using a whisk, incorporate both the cheeses mixing until the cheese is fully melted. 
Add the sea salt and set the sauce aside, ready for Cheesesteak assembly.
