My Wei Chicken Sandwich

This Asian Street sandwich was created at the World Food Championships in Las Vegas. Finalists had to draw a type of sandwich out of a hat and then do their own spin on it...I drew grilled chicken. We had to use their pantry ingredients, including Grey Poupon, the sponsor, and then present to 10 judges for the final round of the sandwich competition. This is an easy marinated chicken with tasty toasted bun.
