Crunchy Chicken Teriyaki Sandwich

What do you cook for lunch during this quarantine?

I usually whip up something really quick, or use leftovers from the night before.

Today’s dish is one of my lunch staples. It’s my very own version of a crunchy chicken teriyaki sandwich.

I’m combining celery and carrots along with tender chicken teriyaki. If you swap the meat for tofu, you can modify it to a vegetarian dish as well.

Please watch my how to video since i'm sharing tips there!

<Miwa's tips>

・If you slice the chicken right after you finish cooking it, all the juice of chicken will come out. To keep it tender and moist, let them sit for 5mins.

・ Removing the oil is quite important to have shiny tender chicken.

・ To know if the chicken is cooked or not, poke it with a bamboo skewer, and if the liquid comes out translucent, it means cooked.

<Storage time>

store it in a air-tight container in the fridge for 2days.
