Recipe: Copycat Penn Station Chicken Teriyaki Sub

Penn Station is one of my favorite Cincinnati area restaurants - I've been hundreds of times over the past 15 years! Normally - I always get the Philly Cheese sub - so much so that I made a copycat of it. 

Penn Station is one of my favorite Cincinnati restaurants and their Chicken Teriyaki sub is so delicious! It's tangy and filled with chicken, veggies and - of course - cheese! You'll love it!
But every once in a while - I go rogue and get the Chicken Teriyaki Sub. It's my friend Kelly's favorite sandwich and I have to say - it's rubbed off on me! It's loaded with veggies and melted Swiss - plus the Teriyaki sauce is so delicious!

I think a lot of people don't think to make sandwiches like this at home - but it's so easy! You'd probably make these ingredients anyway and serve them on rice - so instead of rice - just grab a pack of sub rolls. The key is that you need to broil them to get the cheese melty and bubbly like they do at Penn Station.

And that's the other thing - the broiler heats up the bread the PERFECT amount!!! It gets the outside crispy but the inside stays soft. My favorite teriyaki sauce for sure is the Soy Vay brand - you can also make your own - but I always have a bottle of Soy Vay in the fridge!

If you don't have Penn Station in your neck of the woods- this is a great way to enjoy it in your own home and have one of their best sellers that is also one of my favorites!!

  1. Just a note that the Penn Station version uses Swiss cheese. But provolone is awesome as well! Love your copycat recipes, keep them coming.
