Asian Chicken Sandwich

I found this recipe on Use Real Butter 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!

    Delicious! This is a very popular recipe with my husband :) I made it with the coleslaw the first time… But since then, I just make the chicken and siracha mayo to make chicken burgers with lettuce and tomatoes. Just as delicious, and a little less work ;)
