My daughter had a track meet last night and also a paper route to do afterward and I needed a quick dinner. My problem is that everyone is getting tired of my same old same old meals. Tell you the truth so was I. They had ground chicken on sale and so I thought I would hit the internet for some recipes. Before you think I did all of this from scratch…wrong. I had a migraine that wouldn’t let up and BSd my way through the meal prep.
I wasn’t about to cook and shred chicken or buy a rotisserie chicken to shred. Nope, I was going to use the ground. I add some stuff to fluff it a bit and Voila! We have the makings of slider patties. For the Teriyaki sauce, all I did was grab my favorite bottled brand. I’m a mom with a migraine, there isn’t time for a homemade sauce! Grabbed an Asian salad kit and some Hawiann sweet rolls and we have a dinner that my ENTIRE family was skeptical about but decided they loved it.
Here’s what I used:
- 2 lbs of ground chicken
- 1 Cup of bread crumbs (I had seasoned so that’s what went in)
- 3 Carrots-grated (because this is the only acceptable vegetable for my husband)
- 1/2 Cup Teriyaki sauce (use whichever brand or make it yourself-make it yummy)
- Some lettuce or cabbage for topping (this is where I used the Asian salad kit-not dressed)
- La Choy Chow Mein Noodles for extra topping crunch factor.
- Salt to taste
- Pepper to taste
- Cayenne Pepper to taste
- Onion Powder (couple dashes)
- 2 Cloves grated garlic
- Non-Stick cooking spray
Here’s what I did:
In a bowl, I mixed the bread crumbs, grated carrots, egg, seasonings, and garlic with the ground chicken. From there I flattened the mixture into my sprayed baking dish. Instead of having to form all the slider patties all I had to do was cut the one huge patty into 12 small patties. I baked the chicken for about 45 minutes in a 350° oven. Ok, I forgot about it being in the oven but it didn’t burn so YAY me! I spread the Teriyaki sauce over the top and baked for another 5 minutes. After letting my giant patty cool for a few, sliced and served on the rolls topped with the undressed Asian salad, and chow mein noodles. Let me tell you, it was moist and flavorful.
My writing is going to be a little delayed today but it will all get done. Tonight, spaghetti. I hope my husband can manage it.
