Baked Chicken Cheesesteak Dippers

tyson disclosureBaked Chicken Cheesesteak Dippers I’ve mentioned that lately my family has been very busy. Between work, the kids’ activities, preparing for a new baby, and all of the other day-to-day life activities, we just don’t have a lot of free time. It’s really easy to just grab some food on the way to an activity, but the cost for that adds up quickly.

So, I’ve been focusing more on fast, easy meals – like these Baked Chicken Cheesesteak Dippers – to help with the meal-time rush. These dippers have a crisp, tortilla shell filled with tender, shredded chicken, diced onions and green peppers, and plenty of gooey, melted provolone cheese. So, they have all of the flavors of a chicken cheesesteak in a convenient, mess-free little package.Baked Chicken Cheesesteak Dippers

One of the things that I love about these Baked Chicken Cheesesteak Dippers (aside from how yummy they are), is how easy they are to make. In order to help make meals like this even faster, I make up a batch of shredded chicken to use in my recipes throughout the week. When I have a few extra minutes, I just boil the chicken breasts. Then, I shred them with two forks once they’re cool enough to handle, and I portion them into baggies. With the chicken cooked and shredded, this recipe takes less than 30 minutes to make, including the baking time.

This is an ideal recipe because these dippers can be an appetizer, a quick lunch, an afternoon snack, or an easy dinner. With a new baby due soon and a busy family, I’m always looking for quick meal suggestions. So, what tips do you have for making meals faster and easier? 

Baked Chicken Cheesesteak Dippers

Ingredients

  • 1 T . olive oil
  • 1 green bell pepper , seeded and finely diced
  • 1/2 c . finely diced white or yellow onion
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 ½ lbs . Tyson® Fresh Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts , cooked and shredded
  • 4 oz . provolone cheese , shredded
  • About 13 small (fajita-sized) flour tortillas

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 415 F. Line a baking sheet with foil; lightly coat foil with cooking spray.
  2. In a large skillet over medium low heat, warm olive oil.
  3. Add diced pepper and onion, and cook until veggies are soft, about 3-5 minutes.
  4. Add chicken, and stir to combine.
  5. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  6. Remove skillet from heat.
  7. Lay tortillas out flat.
  8. Add about 1 ½ - 2 tablespoons of filling to the outer third of each tortilla.
  9. Sprinkle with cheese.
  10. Tuck the top and bottom in, and roll tortilla up.
  11. Place seam side down on prepared baking sheet.
  12. Lightly mist tortillas with nonstick cooking spray.
  13. Bake 10-15 minutes, or until crisp.
Note: Chicken must be cooked to an internal temperature of 170 degrees for boneless products and 180 degrees for bone in chicken products. For this recipe, I used Tyson® Fresh Chicken Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts. Chicken is pretty much the only meat that my son will eat, and it’s a budget-friendly choice. Plus, we don’t live too far from the family farms that raise Tyson’s chickens, so we know where the chicken is coming from and that it’s fresh. Need more ideas for easy dinners?

    I’m entering my comment because the official rules state the contest ends at 5 pm Pacific time which is 30 minutes from now.
    I also cook chicken ahead of time and use it to make my favorite fried rice recipe.

    I’d like to try making Chicken Florentine. I often buy it frozen, but my favorite brand was discontinued and the others aren’t as good.

    Before I say another word, I am promising that your Baked Chicken Cheesesteak Dippers will be making an appearance in this house soon. Genius!

    Another new dinner recipe I want to try is from Tyson’s website (thanks for the link!): Caramelized Onion and Garlic Chicken. It uses chicken thighs, which are a favorite here.

    With back to school and after school activities, I’m going to give these a try. I’m betting they would be great to freeze as well as a quick meal/snack.
