Sweet and Spicy Sesame Chicken Sandwich
This was so delicious. I made these sandwiches for lunch yesterday and both of us were like “Mmmf, this is so good…” , ”mmmfh, mmm, oh my god, so good”, ”mmmpf, delicious”, “so good.”. Have you ever had that conversation? I hope so.
Make a marinade with the juice of 1 tangerine or orange, 2 tblsp apricot jelly, 2 tsp soy sauce, 1 tsp fish sauce, 1 tsp sesame oil, 1 inch of fresh grated ginger, 3 smashed and chopped garlic cloves, a big sprinkle of black sesame seeds, salt, pepper and red pepper flakes.
In a roasting pan, place two or more pieces of organic chicken. Coat the chicken with the marinade. Bake at 425 for 15 minutes, reduce the heat to 350 and continue cooking for another 30 minutes, basting with the pan juices every 10 minutes or so, until the chicken is cooked through. A thermometer should read at least 165.
Toast any bread you have, and dress with a little mayo. Add the sliced cooked chicken along with shredded purple cabbage and carrots, sliced peppers, cucumbers, green onions and top with miso dressing.
For the miso dressing combine: 2 tblsp Organic non GMO miso paste, 1 tsp organic sugar, 1 tblsp organic canola oil, 1tsp sesame oil, 1/2 inch grated ginger and 2 smashed garlic cloves, and 1 tblsp organic soy sauce. Delicious!
