A coworker friend of mine introduced us to Little Sicily II a few years ago. We are addicted. I usually try to get there once per month or two and the Spicy Chicken Cheesesteak is the only thing I’ve ever ordered from there along with Spicy Masala Fries. I cant recommend this more. Now my son and his friends travel from NJ just to get these too. Your photo at the top of this article looks identical to what they make and my mouth is watering as I type.

I moved away from Philly in 2017 and I miss this sandwich! I’m using your recipe tonight. Do you have a recipe for their Vegetarian sandwich?

Then cheese! And lots of it. To me the number one mistake of a bad cheesesteak is not mixing the cheese in with the meat.

I grew up in Newport ! Penn Bantam was amazing! We miss it ! So odd how I look for a spicy chicken cheesesteak recipe and stumble across this!

wow! What a small world, I miss Penn Bantam so much and still haven’t found a deli that compares! Im glad you came across my page!!

The recipe looks so good, can’t wait to try it. Couple of quick questions though –
1) I live in England, and American cheese may be hard to come by. What’s an alternative?
2) Did you toast the bread rolls first?

So delicious and easy to make! Thanks for sharing! 🙂

We moved here from NYC and recently discovered Little Sicily II and am hooked! Love your post and hearing your experiences working with your family! Great read! ❤️

My husband is OBSESSED with Little Sicily, glad you liked it too! Thanks for taking the time to read my post 🙂

You say you’ve been making cheesesteaks for a long time. This isn’t a cheesesteak. It’s some sort of sandwich with ground chicken (or beef) on it. You need to get actual cheesesteak meat and then break it up small.

Little Sicily also makes an Egg Bhurji sandwich which is good as well. Their Bombay Club sandwich is fantastic as well.


Yes I have been making them for a long time. When I was making them in my shop, we did use the cheesesteak meat and chop it up small but that was because we had the space for a large flattop cooking surface. At home, this is not possible, plus that cheesesteak meat comes frozen, therefore what I’ve shared is my homemade version of a cheesesteak using fresh ground chicken! 🙂 And yes, their egg bhurji and bombay clubs are delicious too!
