My Wei Chicken Sandwich

Lori McLain


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.

  • 5Over medium-high heat, grill the marinated chicken about 10-12 minutes, turning at least 3 times until cooked thoroughly and chicken is nicely dark and sticky.
  • 6separate rolls into sets of 3 hooked together. Split the roll trios on the side with a small knife and open flat. Brush insides of rolls with sesame oil and toast on grill or griddle. Brush tops lightly and sprinkle with sesame seeds, then lightly toast tops 30 seconds . Place one chicken breast on the bottom of the roll, then top with grilled veggies. You may wrap each sandwich in serving paper ...just like you would get from a street cart ! Serves 8 (You could also divide each sandwich in thirds and serve as a platter of mini sandwiches)
