Yakitori Chicken Sandwich on Kaiser Rolls

Labels: { , }

This Asian-flavoured, warm chicken sandwich recipe is truly delicious prepared with homemade yakinori chicken and Kaiser bun fresh out of the oven. It would make a great snack or paired with some French fries and call it a meal!
Adapted from Essen und Trinken

  • 10 g Fresh ginger
  • 4 tbsp Sherry
  • 4 tbsp Soya sauce
  • 1 tbsp Water
  • 2 tsp Brown sugar
  • 150 g Chicken breast
  • 1 Tomato
  • 1 stalk Spring onion
  • Green bell pepper
  • Red onion
  • 1 tbsp Corn oil
  • 2 Kaiser rolls (adapted from The Bread Baker's Apprentice)
  • or toast bread
  1. Peel and thinly slice the ginger. Mix sherry, soya sauce, water and brown sugar in a bowl. Stir until sugar has dissolved. Add in ginger slices.
  2. Slice the chicken breast and add into the marinade. Set aside for 30 minutes. Cut tomato in slices, spring onion, red onion and green pepper in rings.
  3. Remove the sliced chicken from the marinade, drain. Reserve the marinade. Heat a skillet with oil. Add in sliced chicken and cook for 5 minutes until lightly golden brown. Now pour in the reserved marinade and cook until chicken is done.
  4. Cut the roll crosswise in half and toast. Layer chicken, tomato slices, spring onion, green pepper and red onion rings on the Kaiser roll bottoms.

Indie.Tea 19/5/11 09:31

Ooo, that sounds really delicious. And I like that you used bell peppers and green onions instead of standard greens - it would go better with the yakitori I'd imagine. Yum...I really have to try this at home.

Thank you for the mention of the award I gave you, Angie...You're a dear friend. Been trying to catch up with comments, been such a hectic week for me. Youre marinade for the chicken bread is almost the same as I used for the whole chicken and the soba noodles. Love the kaiser roll and the sandwich with this delicious chicken. Can't go wrong with a lunch like this. I would even have it as a light dinner:D
