How Thinly Do You Slice Chicken For a Cheesesteak?

I recommend using the thinnest chicken slices possible, but it’s definitely possible to be flexible here. Shaved or shredded chicken is ideal.

If you can’t make this a shaved chicken recipe, no worries! It’s perfectly okay to use pulled pieces or chopped chunks of chicken if that’s what you have on hand. 

What is a Buffalo Chicken Hoagie Made Of?

In its simplest form, a chicken cheese steak is made from a combination of chicken, cheese, onions, and peppers. All ingredients are sauteed and served up on a toasted hoagie roll. 

This shaved chicken recipe has all of the classic ingredients with an added kick. Blue cheese and buffalo sauce are included to create a seriously delicious buffalo chicken hoagie. You’re going to love it!

If you are feeding a lot of people or simply want to have a larger meal with your buffalo chicken cheese steak, you have lots of options. This recipe goes great with a dinner salad or any of your favorite sandwich sides. Here are a few ideas to get you started:

What is Buffalo Sauce Made Of?

Buffalo sauce is super easy to make. All you need is butter, hot sauce, vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, and a few spices. The process takes almost no time at all.
