Sizzling Chicken and Cheese

When my husband and I first starting dating, our date place was always TGI Fridays. I loved their frozen Cosmopolitans and their Jack Daniels shrimp. My hubby loved most of their chicken dishes but his favorite was their Sizzling Chicken. We haven't been in years, mostly because we've moved away from our home town and I couldn't even tell you if the menu is what I remember.
Sizzling Chicken and Cheese is flavorful, gooey, and just amazing! The chicken is marinated first before being sautéed with bell peppers and covered in cheese. What is not to like about this dish???

What You Need:

2 tbs olive oil
1 clove minced garlic
1/2 c shredded Monterey Jack Cheese
2 slices American Cheese
1 green pepper, julienned
1 red pepper, julienned
1 onion, sliced

2 chicken breast
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tbs chopped parsley
1/3 c olive oil
1 tsp crushed red pepper
salt and pepper

What To Do:

In a bowl, whisk together all the marinade ingredients, except for the chicken. Place into a resealable plastic storage bag along with the chicken. Press out as much air as possible so that the marinade surrounds the chicken. Let marinade for a few hours.

In a skillet, over medium heat, sauté the onions and peppers in the 2 tbs olive oil until they start to soften. Add in the garlic. Push the peppers and onions to the side of the pan and sauté the chicken until browned on both sides. Place the chicken on top of the peppers, then cover with the cheese. Place a lid on the pan for a few minutes or until the cheese has melted. Serve!

  1. This was fantastic! We had this tonight and it was so delicious! I ended up shredding the chicken instead of leaving it whole and I added some broccoli to the mix and it turned out so yummy. Even the kids loved it!
