TGIFriday's Sizzling Chicken and Cheese

{Update 3/6/2012} I finally made this recipe with the mashed potatoes and we all gobbled it up! Nick {the hubs} was really excited to have this meal homemade!
TGIF's Sizzling Chicken & Cheese | A plate of seasoned chicken, mashed potatoes, and sizzling cheesy peppers and onion #copycat #recipe

My husband got this dish a couple times at TGIFriday's and I always begged for a few bites. Luckily, he's good at sharing, so I did get to try it. It's such a good dish. I didn't cook mine with mashed potatoes, but I will definitely try that next time. I'm sure it would only make it exponentially more awesome :)

What you need:
  • Chicken breasts (seasoned with garlic, parsley, red pepper flakes, salt and pepper)
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 tsp. chopped garlic
  • 1/2 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • 2 slices American cheese
  • Mashed Potatoes (I didn't fix mine with potatoes but will next time)
  • 1 green pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1 red pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1 yellow onion, thinly sliced
  1. Pound chicken to even thickness and season.
  2. Saute sliced onions and peppers in olive oil until softened. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
  3. Saute chicken in olive oil until cooked all the way through and golden brown.
  4. Put mashed potatoes in a deep skillet, heated over medium, on one side and cheeses on other side. Place pepper and onion "medley" on top of potatoes and cheese. Then add chicken to the potatoes' side of the skillet. Top with parsley and serve sizzling!

This is my favorite dish from Friday's and now I can make it at home and for a lot less than going out to eat.

Stopped by from Mouthwatering Monday

I live out in the boonies, far from a TGI Fridays, so I am always so glad to find a recipe like this so that I can fake out that take out at home! I would love it if you shared this on my blog party, Makin' You Crave Monday, over at!!

I used to love TGIF until the one near me closed. I'll have to try your recipe sometime because it looks delish! Thanks for sharing!

I've never been to a TGIF's, but this dish sure sounds good. Thanks for sharing.

mmm...I should remember not to read food blogs on an empty stomach. Makes me want to grab the chicken right out of my computer screen.
