2 pieces of chicken thigh fillets
1/4 cup Japanese soy sauce
2 tablespoons mirin
1 tablespoon sugar
mixed green salad (baby spinach, purple coral lettuce, red onion and capsicum)
- Slice the chicken fillets thinly into big thin pieces so that it will not take long to cook through in the pan.
- Marinate the chicken with soy sauce, mirin and sugar for at least 2 hours.
- Pre-heat the grill to high setting. Slice the ciabatta rolls in half horizontally and spread both sides with butter. Toast the cut sides until slightly crisp. Remove from the grill immediately.
- Heat oil in a hot pan. Place chicken pieces into the pan and turn the heat to slow. Turn over the chicken a few time to get an even cook of both sides. Pour the rest of the marinate juice onto the chicken until it glazes over the chicken.
- Arrange the green salad onto the bottom of the rolls, place chicken over the salad and drizzle with mayonnaise. Finish up with the top buns. Oashi!
