I love a good cheese steak but it doesn't love my waistline so much. To lighten things up, we are going to get rid of the bread and substitute chicken breast for the steak. Then we are going to use lots of veggies and a simple cheese sauce to make a delicious and low carb version of a delicious cheese steak.
