Tasty Tuesday – Grillin’ A Chicken Philly!

Today (Tuesday) is Tim’s Birthday! We had a little fun celebrating this weekend with awesome food from the grill. Well, he did do the grillin’, but he enjoys it! Check out the yummy Chicken Philly!

Tim started by cutting up some beautiful red, green, and yellow peppers. Oh, and don’t forget the onion.

He fired up the grill! There’s something about a grill that makes him smile!

Add a little marinated chicken breasts.

Then everything is arranged just so on the hot grill.

Mix the peppers, onions, and grilled chicken together.

He was making 8 sandwiches with different requests. Tim made a sauce that he added to each hoagie roll and then loaded them up with “grilled goodness!”  He arranged them on a baking sheet for a quick trip into the hot oven to melt the cheese and toast the bread a little bit!

Here’s the finished Chicken Philly topped with Mozzerella Cheese…

It was fantastic and everyone loved it! There’s something special about food from the Tim’s grill!

  1. Tim marinated the chicken with Dales Sauce, Garlic Powder, Salt, Pepper, and Lemon Pepper Mix.
  2. The peppers and onions always take awhile, so sit back and relax.  He cuts those huge to keep them from burning and/or falling into the coals, then puts them on for awhile before the chicken.
  3. A special sauce included a simple mix of Mayo with a little bit of Thousand Island Dressing mixed in.
  4. All was served with potato salad, sunshine, and lots of napkins!

Then there’s the Birthday Cake…


My mom made this fabulous cake that’s so moist and yummy!

Surprise Cake

  • Duncan Hines Butter Pecan Cake Mix {or Vanilla or Yellow cake mix with 1/2 cup finely crushed pecans}
  • 2 ripe kiwi
  • 1 ripe apple
  • 1 large ripe peach
  • eggs {see directions}
  • Butter {see directions}
  • Buttermilk {see directions}

**Using the cake mix, you will substitue melted butter for oil and Buttermilk for water.

Chop all the fruit into small pieces then saute in the butter until soft. Mix the cake mix as directed taking into consideration that the butter is used to saute the fruit. Pour fruit mixture into the cake batter. Blend. Pour into a greased Bundt pan and cook according to the directions on the box.


  • 3/4 cup {approx.} of brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup {approx.} stick of butter
  • 1/4 cup Buttermilk
  • 1/2 box of confectioner’s sugar

Cook for 5 minutes while stirring. Drizzle over a cool cake immediately. This will harden as it cools.

This is an amazing cake! It stays moist, so it can be made a day ahead of time. Vanilla ice cream is a great finishing touch!

  3. Is one’s tummy supposed to want Philly Cheese Sandwiches at 8 in the morning?! That looks AWESOME!! By the way, I found a recipe on here a few weeks ago (I’m sorry I do not know who it belongs to cause I wrote it out on paper), and I made this weekend for guests. Homemade Mac n Cheese that used cottage cheese…it was GREAT!! Love your parties!

  4. OMG those sandwiches look so good and my hubby loves Philly cheesesteaks but I don’t like to make them too often with the red meat. What a great idea to use chicken. I have printed out the recipe and am planning on making them next week.

    Haven’t made any new recipes that we liked enough to share the past few weeks, they’ve been from my Everyday Food magazine, and so I haven’t linked up but I do continue to get great ideas from here every Tuesday!
