Hoagies are a great meal for the last few weeks of the semester. They're like a meal in a sub roll and easy to throw together after a night of studying. If you are making chicken during the week, plan to make a few extra pieces for left-overs--when you are ready for the 'Chicken Pepperochini Hoagie', all you have to do is assemble and toast.
Even if you have not planned ahead, this is an easy recipe to have any given day in college, and I have listed the simplest way to get there below if you are starting from ground zero.
Time Saver Tip:
Use prepackaged spice mixes from McCormick's Recipe Inspirations to avoid purchasing expensive spices you may not use frequently.
Large non-stick skillet
Mixing bowl, for marinating meat
Toaster oven or regular oven
3-4 chicken breasts, sliced into thin strips
1/4 cup lime juice
1/4 cup orange juice
1/4 cup of olive oil
1 tsp of salt
1 tsp of pepper
Pepperjack cheese (or whichever you prefer)
1. Wash your hands.
2. Prepare the McCormick's marinade in a medium mixing bowl or Ziplock bag.
5. Heat a large non-stick skillet with olive oil and/or butter.
6. Sear the chicken in a single layer until the strips begin to turn golden brown.
8. Once the meat is browned, add some fresh lime, and set aside.
