Slice your rolls right down the middle. Place them in a pan with foi.lplace 2/3 of mixture on bottom of rolls..Add your ham and then your cheese.Top with the other side of the rolls and add the rest of the mixture on top.Bake for 20 mins on 350! Cut where the lines are in the Hawaiian rolls and you know have perfectly melted sliders.

 

 

I'm having a hard time understanding what you mean, can you explain more? It sounds like it would be great for a party.

Just discovered Israeli Couscous and have made this a couple of times. 

 

Its hearty enough that you leave the table satisfied but not so heavy that you dont want it on a hot summer evening.

 

2 tablespoons olive oil
2 cups diced onion
2 cups diced carrots
2 cups diced celery
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 1/3 cups Israeli (Pearl) Couscous (I prefer the tri-color)
2 cups chicken broth
12 oz (about 3 cups) Cooked chopped chicken (the rosted bird from Harris Teeter deli is perfect)

1. In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium high heat. Add onion, carrots, and celery, season with salt and pepper, and saute for 5-10 minutes until softened and caramelized.

2. Add garlic and stir to combine until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add couscous and broth, stir to combine, then cover, reduce heat to low, and simmer for 8-10 minutes until broth is absorbed.

3. Add chicken and stir until heated through.

yeah it is a little confusing.  Buy the hawaiian rolls that come in a squarish pan.  Turn the pan over and all the rolls will come out still attached.  Using a very sharp knife, cut sideways through the middle, separating the top halves from the bottom halves.  I just put the bottom of the rolls, still attached to each other for the most part, and put them back in the pan.  It's basically like a big piece of bread

that forms the base.

 

then add everything else and put the top of the rolls back on top.  Cook and then run a knife down

the sides of each roll to separate them, so folks can pick them out of the pan.

not to mention I copied a recipe I don't use.  I put all the mixture in between the 2 slabs of bread.

 

sorry I didn't notice that before.

Simple little cheese slaw...but awesome.

 

1lb block of swiss cheese (Food lion cheapo is fine) and shred on largest

 

half jar (smallish jar) of those Mt Olive diced jalapeno peppers drained

 

half jar (smallish jar) of Mt Olive mile bananna peppers drained

 

3 tablespoons Duke mayo

 

Tops off bundle of green onions sliced into little pieces

 

 

Dice the banana pepper rings into small pieces.  Mix everything above adding mayo if needed.  Kind of a dryish slaw with mayo doing nothing more than to hold everything together. (for the record...I despise mayo and love this).

 

Eat with Wheat Thins.  Good to just put out for people to snack on before dinner.

That sounds good put I despise swiss cheese. Can you taste the swiss or is there an alternate cheese that works just as well?

This is not my recipe, but my GF and I make it alot. 

 

INGREDIENTS COST 2 lbs. boneless, skinless chicken breasts $3.96 2 large eggs $0.30 1/4 cup coconut milk (optional) $0.16 1/2 cup all purpose flour $0.28 1 cup panko bread crumbs $0.43 1 cup shredded coconut $0.50 1/2 tsp salt $0.05 1/2 cup vegetable oil, divided $0.29 1 cup sweet chili sauce $0.94 TOTAL   $6.91

STEP 1: Cut off any extra fat globules from your chicken breasts. Cut each breast into 6 strips, diagonally to prevent the end strips from being really short. See photos below.

STEP 2: Prepare your breading station by gathering three bowls. In the first bowl combine the flour and salt. In the second bowl, combine the eggs and coconut milk. Whisk together until well combined. In the third bowl, stir together the panko bread crumbs and shredded coconut.

STEP 3: Place 1/4 cup of vegetable oil in a large heavy duty skillet and heat over medium/high heat until it is just below smoking. You can test the heat by throwing in a little bit of flour. When it is hot enough, the flour will sizzle and create a lot of bubbles.

STEP 4: While the oil is heating, dredge the chicken strips. First, coat each strip in the flour and salt mixture. Then dip each into the eggs/coconut milk and finally coat each in panko and shredded coconut. I find it easiest to coat all of them in the flour then go back and then do the egg wash and panko/coconut for each before moving onto the next.

STEP 5: After breading the strips, the oil should be hot enough. Place about 6 strips in the pan at once. There should only be one layer in the pan and there should be about an inch between each strip. If you over crowd the pan it will get too cold and the strips will soak up a lot of oil instead of frying. Fry the strips for 2-3 minutes on each side or until they are golden brown and crispy. Place them on a plate with paper towel to drain and move on to the next batch. After a couple of batches you may need more oil so you can add the second 1/4 cup to the pan. Allow the oil to come up to temperature before frying the next batch (2-3 minutes). Because the strips are thin, they should be cooked through by the time both sides are browned. You can tell by the texture of the chicken; it should be stiff when pressed. If you cut your strips thicker, you will need to bake off the chicken after frying to make sure the insides are cooked through.

STEP 6: When all of the strips are done frying, serve immediately with sweet chili sauce to dip in. I garnished mine with a little bit of chopped cilantro.

Step By Step Photos
I only made two breasts worth today…

slice%20chicken.jpg
Cut each breast into six strips, diagonally.

dredge%20chicken.jpg
Set up your dredging station with three bowls: flour/salt, egg/coconut milk and panko/coconut.

dredged%20chicken.jpg
Coat each chicken strip in flour, egg then panko/coconut. When they’re coated they will look like this. Now they’re ready to fry!

fry%20chicken.jpg
Fry each strip for 2-3 minutes on each side or until they are golden brown and crispy.

fried%20chicken.jpg
Drain the coconut chicken on paper towel to absorb the extra oil.

NOTE: Make sure to buy your boneless, skinless chicken breast in value pack sized containers. Buying this way you can save $1 or more per pound! I bought these as part of a 10 lb. pack for $1.98 per pound. When I got home, I packaged the breasts two per bag and froze them. That way I can take out the quantity I need when I’m ready to cook.

One thing I wish I had done differently with this recipe is to put the coconut into a food processor prior to mixing with the panko crumbs. I feel like if they coconut had been in slightly smaller bits, it would have adhered and covered the chicken more completely. I would have just pulsed the coconut in the processor a couple of times to make the bits about half their size.

If you can’t find panko crumbs, you can use regular bread crumbs, although the breading will be much more dense. You can also try crushing some rice chex as they are a similar texture to panko (another helpful hint from the handsome fish monger!).

As I mentioned, the sweet chili sauce is a huge part of what makes this dish delicious. I have found sweet chili sauce at major grocery stores in the Asian section. Check around because it’s pretty popular. Once you open the bottle it should stay good in your refrigerator for quite some time and it’s good on A LOT of stuff so don’t worry about the rest of the bottle going to waste!
