Sambal Maple Sauce



SaltWire Network


1/2 cup pure maple syrup 1/2 cup Sambal Olek Juice and zest of 1 lime 1/4 cup butter, melted In a bowl, stir to combine all of the sauce ingredients. Toss cooked chicken pieces in the sauce until evenly coated. To assemble Hokkaido milk bread grilled cheese sandwiches: Slice milk bread into Texas toastsized slices and butter the outsides of each slice. Place three or four sauced tempura chicken pieces onto the inner, unbuttered side of one of the pieces of bread. Top the chicken with cheddar cheese and a smattering of cilantro; approximately 1 Tbsp of cilantro per sandwich. Top with second slice of Hokkaido milk bread, butteredside out, and griddle in a pan over middle heat. Griddle on each side until they are both golden brown and the cheese is melted. I like to place a lid on the pan while the grilled cheese magic is working. Serve with sliced cucumber or a sesame dressed cabbage slaw.
