Instructions

The Slaw

  • Add the daikon and carrot to a mixing bowl along with the 1tsp salt and 2tsp sugar

The Chicken

  • Combine everything in a large mixing bowl and massage to fully coat the chicken. Cover with plastic wrap and marinade at least 1 hour
  • Add vegetable oil or another high smoke point oil to a pan and heat to medium-high until the oil is shimmering. Add the chicken and marinade to the pan and stir fry for 2 minutes
  • Remove the chicken from the pan and slice into 1/4" strips, return to the pant and stir fry til done. Roughly 4-6 minutes.

The Sandwich

  • Halve the buns. Optionally dry them out a little in a 350F for about 5 minutes. Your jaw muscles will thank you
  • spread pate on the heal of each bun, top with chicken, then cilantro, slaw, jalapeno, cucumber. Spread mayonnaise on the top of the bun and sprinkle with maggi.
  • Slice in half and serve!
