What to do with your leftover breaded chicken cutlets? How about making a Thai style sandwich? All you need is some peanut butter, a lime, some cilantro and lunch is served! Enjoy!
Thai Chicken Sandwich with Peanut Butter and Sweet Thai Chili sauce:
1 loaf french bread
1 lb chicken breasts
2 cups seasoned breadcrumbs
2 tbsp olive oil
4 tbsp peanut butter
Thai sweet chili sauce for drizzling
1 lime, quartered
Divide bread lengthwise and cut into 4 even sections to make 8 slices for 4 sandwiches. Set aside.
Beat the egg and place in a shallow bowl.
Place the breadcrumbs in a shallow bowl or a pie plate.
Pound the chicken breasts until they are flat, about 1/2 inch thick.
Dip the chicken in the egg and then in the breadcrumbs until they are fully coated.
Heat up a heavy medium sized skillet over medium heat and heat up the oil.
When the oil sizzles with a drop of water, add in the chicken and cook until browned on one side.
Flip the chicken and fry on the other side until golden.
Remove chicken and set aside to cool on paper towels.
When cooled, slice thinly and lay on one side of the sandwich bread and drizzle chili sauce on chicken.
Spread peanut butter on the other side of the sandwich bread and top with cilantro and a squeeze of a lime.
Repeat until all 4 of the sandwiches are made.
