Grilled chicken thigh sammich with dirty slaw and candied jalapeno
Spring is coming...almost time to pull out those bbq's!



[Image: food188_zpsd76f2772.jpg]

Day Before:
Candied peppers...
-1or 2 jalapeno sliced. If you want less heat de-vein and de-seed as well.
-1C apple cider vinegar(I use Bragg)
-1TBS sugar(If using stevia as I do, 1/2 TBS)
Mix ingredients and refrigerate.

Dirty slaw...
2TBS dijon mustard
2TBS balsamic vinegar
1/2C EVOO
1TBS sugar or 1/2 TBS stevia
Salt/white pepper to taste
1/2C scallions thinly sliced
1/4C flat leaf parsley roughly chopped(optional)
6C green cabbage thinly sliced(about 1/2 of 1 head)
Mix ingredients and refrigerate


Day of:
Thigh marinade...
6 chicken thighs skinned and de-boned(I leave a patch of skin on because I'm naughty that way)
1 garlic clove finely minced
1/2C fresh squeezed lime juice. (I'll toss a few halves of slightly muddled lime rind in there for good measure)
1/4C EVOO
Salt/pepper to taste
1/4C cilantro(optional)
Marinate in fridge for 1-3hrs depending upon how much citrus taste you want. Then grill to perfection at med heat

Spicy mayo...
1/2C mayo. Best foods/Hellmans...accept no substitutes.
1 garlic clove finely minced
1TBS sriracha
1TBS Frank's hot sauce
Blend and refrigerate

The build:
Slice a ciabatta roll in half, smear both halves lightly with non salted butter, and place on griddle until browned and crisp. Slather spicy mayo on bottom half...place thigh on mayo...pile with dirty slaw...place candied jalapeno on top of slaw...slather more spicy mayo on top half...and there you have it.

I'd imagine a crisp, flinty white wine would pair well. But since I don't keep that stuff around, I went with an excellent beer from the good folks at Lagunitas in Petaluma. The one I chose has a less hoppy aspect than their traditional IPA and a much more floral note. It's called "Lil Sumpin' " and it paired very well imo.

Enjoy...

Mmmmm! Thanks for the recipe Sunset. I'm thinking this might be on the grill for this up coming weekend.

Oops...Blush

Please add half of one small yellow onion finely chopped to thigh marinade.



Thx 2B.Smile

You can really play with this one too. I thought a crispy deep fried thigh with a corn flake based coating would be a great contrast to the sweet coolness of the slaw, but I'm a lousy fryer and didn't have the minerals to try it.

I think maybe a shorter slaw marinade time would yield a crispier counter texture to a non deep fried thigh too.

Man, I love building a good sammich.Big Grin

For doing candied peppers as described above by Sunset. I replace sugar, stevia and all powdered forms of synthetic sugars by maple syrup. Taste is amazing... gives your dish a definite edge. And, it supposedly is less damageable for our health as it is not refined like sugar, with a decent content of minerals. Sounds like a mass mailing around the cornerBig Grin

Maple syrup in the slaw. That sounds really good with those other flavors!
I might even try the jalapeƱos.
