Sweet teriyaki and carmelized onion sandwich on a homemade bun

Caramelized onions
Homemade bun
Need I say more?

This is the sandwich I mentioned
that I made this weekend
I had some sweet onions that needed used
My husband mentioned wanting some Teryiaki
I was wanting some homemade bread
and this meal was born
And I am so glad it was
It was yummy
and satisfied my want for both
a sub sandwich
and Asian food!
Even my kids ate their sandwiches!
Plus it takes very few ingredients!
  • One batch of homemade sandwich rolls (or buy some Hoagie Rolls)
  • 1 lb of chicken, cubed
  • Garlic (to taste)
  • Teryiaki sauce (I have no idea how much – 1/2 cup?)
  • 3-4 Sweet Onions, Sliced thin (I use my food processor)
  • 1 cup of beef stock (optional)
  • 1 Tbsp Corn Starch (optional)
Directions –
Make your Sandwich Rolls according to the recipe. Place the onions in a large saute pan and heat on medium high heat. Caramelizing the onions is going to take a bit of work. It is the same procedure that I used in making the French Dip SandwichesStir them occasionally and make sure to scrape up the bottom of the pan – this will take probably 10-15 minutes. You want the nice caramelized brown color. Once they are brown and caramelized, add the beef stock (I used a bullion cube dissolved in a cup of hot water). This is optional – I personally like the flavor the stock brings to the onions, but they are delicious on their own! Cook the onions until most of the beef stock is almost completely gone.

For the chicken, place it in a saute pan and add the garlic and pour the Teryiaki sauce on top of it. Cook the chicken in the sauce over medium heat. Once chicken is cooked through, you can serve it as is, if you like a thinner sauce, or if you want it a bit thicker, take some Teryiaki sauce, mix it with some cornstarch, making a slurry, and pour it onto the chicken and cook a bit longer. For mine, only took about 2 minutes to thicken! When I have time (or remember in advance), I like to marinade the chicken in the Teryiaki sauce ahead of time 🙂

Once your rolls, chicken, and onions are ready, Load up your sandwiches and Enjoy! They are mouthwatering delicious!
