The other night I said to my husband, “It’s almost hockey season!” Fall is not only hockey season in our home. It’s also bowling season for my husband as he returns to his Friday night bowling league. The Friday night hustle usually includes my husband getting home from work, eating dinner, then getting his bowling gear ready to head back out the door again.
That usually means Friday night is pizza night around here. But since I’ve been cutting back on carbs, I’ve been trying to think of other quick fix meals to enjoy on Friday nights. I love meals that are cooked all in one dish. They’re easy to throw together and even easier to dish out!
Hockey season, for me, is when I start thinking about breaking out my jersey, attending games, and of course, eating game food. You know the usual foods eaten with fingers and hands like hot wings, chicken fingers, nachos, and cheesesteaks.
The recipes we make at home emulate the foods eaten at stadiums and arenas. Making them at home allows you to use better-for-you ingredients to replicate the flavors of these favorite stadium foods.
One of our favorite easy meals to eat during the Fall is cheesesteaks. But now that I am eating a more balanced diet, I had to think about other options that include the same great flavors of cheesesteak.
That’s when I decided to make a Chicken Cheesesteak Casserole. This dish has all of the deliciousness of a chicken cheesesteak, but it’s in easy casserole form! Simply throw all of the ingredients in a casserole dish and bake! Serve it with or without the sandwich roll!
Season boneless, skinless chicken breasts and place them in a casserole dish. Pour a zingy Buffalo over chicken.
Add pepper strips and mushrooms on top of chick. You can’t have a proper cheesesteak without those!
The big finisher is a hefty handful of shredded cheese. Add as much or as little as you like! Let it bubble and serve!
