Asian Chicken Sandwich AND A Giveaway

Asian Chicken Sandwich AND A Giveaway

by Pam on April 25, 2013

I found this recipe on Use Real Butter[1] that looked too good to resist. I adapted it to use what I had on hand and to work best with our tastes. The sriracha mayonnaise was out of this world amazing and I can’t wait to try it on sandwiches and other things soon. The slaw had a nice soy and ginger flavor and the chicken was crispy and tender without being greasy. The combination of  the ingredients together was fantastic. My husband ABSOLUTELY LOVED these chicken sandwiches and even took the leftovers to work the following day. My kids both gobbled their sandwiches up and I didn’t leave a single crumb on my plate. These will definitely be on our dinner table again VERY SOON.

See the bottom of this post for the Giveaway information. Good luck!

Line a baking sheet with tin foil then top with two cooling racks.

Cut the chicken breasts in half lengthwise then cut each piece into half widthwise. You should end up with four pieces of same thickness chicken. Season both sides of the meat with sea salt, freshly cracked pepper, and garlic powder, to taste. Pour the flour onto a flat plate. Whisk the egg and milk together in a bowl. Pour the panko onto a flat plate.

Dredge the chicken into the flour; next dip into the egg mixture followed by dipping into the panko crumbs, making sure to get an even coating. Place onto the cooling racks; repeat with the remaining chicken. Place the chicken into the refrigerator for 30 minutes.  Side Note: Don’t skip this step, it helps the panko adhere to the chicken. 

After the chicken has been in the refrigerator for 30 minutes, remove and set on the counter for 15 minutes. Heat half of the oil into a large skillet over medium high heat. Once the pan is hot, add four pieces of the panko crusted chicken and cook for 4-5 minutes on the first side, until golden brown. Flip the chicken over and cook for another 3 minutes or until the chicken is golden brown and cooked through. Remove from the skillet and place on a plate with a tin foil tent. Repeat the process with the remaining oil and chicken.

Place the coleslaw mix, green onions, and cilantro in a bowl. In another bowl, combine the grated ginger, soy sauce, lime juice, and rice vinegar. Whisk the ingredients while adding the sesame oil into the dressing. Pour the dressing over the coleslaw mixture and toss to coat. Sprinkle with sesame seeds if desired.  Side Note: I made the coleslaw when I started cooking the chicken so it would not get soggy. 

Combine the mayonnaise together with the sriracha sauce, to taste. We liked our sauce spicy. Set aside.

Toast your hamburger buns in the oven for a few minutes, if you prefer. Slather some sriracha mayonnaise on the bun, place a piece of chicken on top then a good spoonful of slaw. Slather the top bun with more sriracha mayonnaise, if desired. Serve immediately. Enjoy!

Grilled Hawaiian Teriyaki Burger

If you’re looking for a new way to enjoy a burger, then I think you’ll love this Hawaiian inspired teriyaki burger made with Laura’s Lean ground beef[1], carrots, scallions and topped with a homemade pineapple teriyaki sauce and a grilled pineapple.

Last weekend I spent four days in Disney World with my husband and youngest daughter Madison. I attended the Food Blog Forum which was truly inspirational, and we stayed at the Grand Floridian Resort which was a lovely place to stay. One of those nights we ate dinner at the Kona Cafe at Disney’s Polynesian Resort, where I had a delicious teriyaki steak topped with pineapple; which was the inspiration for this burger recipe.
 
[2][3]

I did a little research into what goes into a Hawaian teriyaki sauce, and after reading many recipes I came up with my own version which was so good, this will certainly be a regular. You could of course buy teriyaki marinade to speed this up, but making it from scratch tastes sooo much better.

I’m a huge fan of Laura’s Lean Beef[4], because it’s low in fat and saturated fat, and free of hormones and antibiotics, which is important to me when choosing meat. Their beef is available in many supermarkets, and I even found it at Target. I’m also running a giveaway over at Skinny Bits[5] for two $25 vouchers so if you haven’t tried Laura’s Lean Beef, here’s your chance (click link for giveaway[6])

And I just have to share this contraption that easily cuts pineapple into perfect rings. My girlfriend Gabbie bought this for me a few years ago, and I love it; it’s called the Pineapple Easy Slicer[7]. It’s simple to use and it’s awesome. If you prefer canned pineapple, be sure it’s packed in juice and not syrup.

By the way, this is also great without the bun if you’re watching your carbs, just serve it on a bed of lettuce and drizzle the teriyaki sauce on top. Without the bun, the burgers are Weight Watchers 6 points plus.

Grilled Hawaiian Teriyaki Burger

Servings: 8 • Size: 1 burger • Old Points: 7 pts • Weight Watcher Points+: 8 pt*
Calories: 330 • Fat: 10 g • Carb: 37 g • Fiber: 6 g • Protein: 29 g • Sugar: 21 g
Sodium: 584 mg • Cholest: 60 mg   *without bun: 6 PP

Ingredients:

  • 2 lbs Laura’s Lean 93% ground beef
  • 1/2 cup grated carrots
  • 1/2 cup chopped scallions
  • 1 tsp fresh grated ginger
  • 1 tbsp reduced sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tsp sriracha sauce (or more if you like it spicy)
  • 8 slices fresh pineapple
  • 8 whole wheat 100 calorie buns (I used Martin’s)
  • 8 lettuce leaves

For the pineapple teriyaki sauce:

  • 1/2 tbsp cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup cold water
  • 1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup pineapple juice
  • 3 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh grated ginger, very fine
  • 1 small garlic clove, minced

Directions:

For the burgers: Gently combine the ground beef with grated carrots, scallions, ginger, soy sauce and sriracha sauce. Form into 8 equal sized patties, try not to overwork the meat so it doesn’t get tough.

For the teriyaki sauce:  Combine the cornstarch in cold water and dissolve. Set aside.

Mix soy sauce, pineapple juice, brown sugar, grated ginger and garlic in small saucepan over medium-low heat; bring to a boil and simmer until sauce reduces, about 15 to 18 minutes. Add cornstarch water mixture and simmer until thick, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside to cool.

Heat the grill. When hot clean the grates and spray with oil. Place the patties on the grill and cook on high heat for about 5 to 7 minutes on each side, or until burgers are cooked to your liking. While the burgers are cooking, grill the pineapple slices for about 2 to 3 minutes on each side.

To serve, place a piece of lettuce on the bottom of each burger bun. Top with the cooked burger and 1 tbsp of teriyaki sauce, then top with grilled pineapple.
