"Salty, sweet, crunchy all on one sandwich. Guaranteed to excite your taste buds! Healthy sandwich that comes together quickly. This can be grilled outdoors or cooked in a skillet/grill pan indoors. Serve with a nice soup for a super simple, but healthy meal."
Serving Size: 1 (272 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 4
"Nice blend of flavors and textures! There is a nice crunch from the cucumbers and broccoli slaw. I included both the optional cilantro (mixed into the slaw) and the red pepper flakes (mixed into the peanut sauce). I did find the peanut sauce a touch on the salty side, despite using reduced sodium soy sauce, so next time I will probably vary the ratio of water to soy sauce. Thanks for sharing! L-O-V-E '12 Event."
"The peanut sauce totally sets this sandwich off! Sweet and salty at its finest. This is one to keep for a rainy afternoon when your feeling like a great hearty lunch!"
"My husband & I really enjoyed this for dinner and he also had leftovers for lunch today at work. Great combination of flavors, they all just went well together! Great hit with our family! Made for zwt6 asia region!"
"I changed this to 1 serving without any trouble.....of course, some of it was by eye! LOL The only change I would make to this, is to mix the broccoli slaw with the p'nut sauce. (Personal preference!) I found these really thin sandwich buns. I toasted them lightly and were great. Overall, I was quite pleased with my sandwich! Oh, I did add the red pepper flakes, but added them to the sauce! Thnx for sharing your recipe, Vicki! Made for ZWT6"
"Flavors are there! Easy, quick and tastey!! I used my panini grill for the chicken and skipped the step of drizzling the oil on them. I used garlic powder instead of salt. The only change in the sauce was I used fresh ginger (had it on hand) and Tamari instead of soy (just a thicker richer soy). I used the hot pepper flakes and cilantro for garnish. Thank you and good luck in the contest!"
"Simple, Yum, Easy, as my DH said refreshing good for the summer! I used just garlic powder not salt and still found the sauce a bit salty. I am hoping these are small chicken breast. 3 ounces is a serving size. Thanks for submitting for RSC #13."
"Reviewed for RSC #13. Quite delicious taste! I wanted to do photos, but the buns I had were useless and started crumbling. We loved the taste combo here, except that the ingredients were (in my case) maybe a bit too top-heavy to top with another bun, and the sauce was not quite enough. I had to panfry the breasts, and they needed quite a bit more oil. Normally I would not substitute a thing in a competition recipe, but I was wary of the 2 Tbls sugar and used less. I used garlic powder and increased the peanut butter to 4 Tbls (we love the taste in these sauces). The recipe has delicious tastes (I did use a sprinkle of hot pepper flakes too, as suggested), but maybe it needs another tweak to get 5 stars. Thanks, chef!!"
