Yesterday I shared my Chipotle Mayo recipe with you. Today, you get the sandwich we spread it all over. My family LOVES spicy food. Coach and I had a jerk chicken sandwich the other day at one of our favorite spots. I knew I had to come home and try and make a jerk sauce to replicate that delicious sandwich we ate. So, I set out to make a jerk sauce, but ended up shifting gears and going down a different road. The results were a huge hit! A boneless skinless chicken breast marinated then smothered in a spicy mandarin orange sauce served on a toasted bun topped with Chipotle Mayo, lettuce, tomato and red onion. YUMMY!
Yields up to 12 sandwiches (see notes below)
1 can 11oz. whole segments mandarin oranges
1 tablespoon garlic, minced
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup olive oil
1/2 cup honey
1 bunch green onions
1 large handful fresh cilantro
2 habenero peppers, roasted, seeds removed
1 package 8 ct. sweet onion hamburger buns
butter, salted, room temp.
red onion, sliced
ice burg lettuce
Recipe For Chipotle Mayo
- In a blender, throw the first 8 ingredients in and hit blend. Marinate chicken breast over night. Remove chicken breast from marinade, (RESERVE MARINADE) grill chicken. Meanwhile, place reserved marinade in a heavy duty pot, cook on medium high heat and bring to a boil; stirring continually. Reduce heat and continue cooking/stirring. You will want the sauce to reduce by half. Remove from heat. (you will want the sauce to be warm when preparing sandwich.)
- Spread butter on the inside of each bun and toast under your broiler. Remove from oven and assemble sandwich. Generously dip each chicken breast into sauce, place on a toasted bun, spread chipotle mayo on the inside of the top part of bun. Next garnish with onion, tomato and lettuce. Serve.
Notes: This produces enough marinade to marinate 12 boneless skinless chicken breast in the amount of sauce above. However once you cook the sauce it reduces. You will still have enough sauce to serve 12 if you desire. Keep left over sauce to put on top of rice or ???
