One of my favorite sandwiches is Schlotzsky's Asian Chicken Wrap. Found the ingredients but was unable to find the actual recipe. This is my version. Tonkatsu is a Japanese sauce that this available in most supermarkets or make your own, recipe included. Do not leave out the cilantro . . it's the most important ingredient. Cooking time includes making your own Tonkatsu sauce.
- 2 boneless chicken breasts
- 4 Sandwich wraps or 4 flour tortillas
Tonkatsu Sauce (use 1 cup or make your own sauce)
- 1⁄2 cup catsup
- 1⁄4 cup Worcestershire sauce
- 1⁄4 cup sake
- 1 tablespoon ginger
- 1 tablespoon garlic
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 2 tablespoons mirin
- 1 cup shredded romaine lettuce
- 1 cup shredded iceberg lettuce
- 1⁄4 julienne carrot
- 1⁄4 cup fresh cilantro
- 1⁄4 cup toasted almond
- 1⁄4 cup chopped red pepper
- Make Japanese Tonkatsu sauce:.
- In small sauce pan combine catsup, Worcestershire sauce, sake, ginger, garlic and sugar.

This was very good! I've never had this wrap at Schlotzky's but we enjoyed it at home. I didn't have sake, so substituted white wine. I did use the mirin and the sauce was good, but a little goes a long way as the flavor is quite strong. I made a full recipe and it made 6 reasonably sized wraps. Very healthy and tasty!
I hope it's OK to post a review twice because this deserves 10 stars. I have never visited the chain, so don't know if this is close or not but the flavor is out of this world. I made the sauce, which thickens while it simmers. I cut the recipe in half which filled 3 (6 inch) flour tortillas. The two of us got 1 1/2 wraps. I made no changes in the recipe but do wonder if you really need two different kinds of lettuce. I think only one would work great and cost less. Thanks for posting this is a keeper and is going in my best of 2009 cookbook. :)
This was very yummy. I made sauce up right after buying chicken breasts..so I stuck them in it and in the freezer...was nice to pull it out, unthaw it and grill! Our chain closed awhile back so I can't remeber exactly what this wrap tasted like there..thiw was very good though. I did add mandarine oranges and green onions to ours..loved it !!!
