Fake Chicken Sliders on Whole Wheat Smithwick's Rolls & Hand Cut Sweet Potato Fries
This is by far my favorite Half-assed Recipe yet. I love sandwiches and I love tiny versions of things, so this is a no brainer. Obviously, you can substitute real meat for the vegetarian kind I use, but if you haven’t tried these delicious fake chicken nuggets yet, I strongly encourage you to give them a shot. They are soy free and tasty!
This post will include three different recipes: one for the bread, one for the fries and one for an aioli. Half-assed recipe follows:
On average, I spend about 2-3 weeks at a time in Washington, DC then return home for 2-3 weeks, then go back. During the time in DC, Nick and I enjoy making a variety of recipes– some old favorites and some new ideas. Most recently, there was a day on which we could not decide what to eat that evening. Neither of us wanted anything too heavy, but we didn’t feel like just having bread and salad, either. Then, like a unicorn comes to a fair maiden, an idea casually trotted up to me and whinnied: chicken salad. PERFECT. A deliciously light, simple recipe into which one can put pretty much anything one likes.
One might think that as a vegetarian, I am unable to enjoy the deliciousness of chicken salad, and one would be mistaken. As I have mentioned before, there is a plethora of meat substitute products that have decent nutrition and great flavor (enough even to please Nick, who is a happy meat-eater). Whether you use real chicken or fake, I hope you enjoy this recipe.
