MMMM... TGI Fridays Chicken N Cheese - Imitation Recipe

TGI Friday's is one of my FAVORITE restaurants. But when I go there, I always get the same thing, the Sizzlin' Chicken 'n Cheese. It sounds plain, but this dish is PACKED with flavor. Please note this is not the actual recipe, but is VERY, VERY similar. I found this recipe from and modified it to my liking. It is VERY easy to make. Comment if you make it and like the recipe!

2 chicken breasts
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1/2 cup shredded Pepper Jack and/or Sharp Cheddar cheese
Mashed Potatoes

2 tablespoons chopped garlic
3 tablespoons chopped parsley
2 ounces olive oil
1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon salt

Pepper & Onion Medley-
1 green pepper, julienne
1 red pepper, julienne
1 yellow onion, julienne

*Feel free to use a bag of frozen peppers and onions. That's what I did, and it still tasted great!*

1. Cut chicken breasts lengthwise to ¼ inch thickness. With a marinade brush, brush the marinade on the chicken breasts and place in a skillet with 1 tbsp olive oil on medium heat.

2. Either use a pepper/onion medley that comes frozen in a 10-12 oz. bag or use fresh peppers and onion. Sauté the pepper and onion medley with the garlic with the chicken until the chicken is a golden brown color and the vegetables are tender.

3. Prepare mashed potatoes according to your liking. Top chicken, still in the pan, with the shredded cheeses and cover with lid. Leave the lid on until the cheese is melted. Remove from heat and enjoy!
