Sweet Citrus Chicken Hoagies

  • Yield 4 servings


8 pieces broiler-fryer chicken thighs, skinned, boned and cut in strips
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 teaspoon lemon pepper
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
1 tablespoon sweet white wine
3 slices mandarin orange slices
4 large crusty Hoagie rolls
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
12 pieces fresh snow peas, ends snipped
1 tablespoon sweet mustard
8 leaves red lettuce leaves
1 small sweet onions, thily sliced in rings
1 tablespoon sesame seeds
4 sprigs fresh mint
sesame seed dressing
1 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup sugar
2/3 cup wine vinegar
1 tablespoon sesame seeds
1 tablespoon chopped onion
1 tablespoon thawed orange juice concentrate
1 tablespoon sweet mustard


In medium bowl, mix together olive oil, garlic, lemon-pepper, lime juice
and wine. Add chicken, cover, refrigerate and marinate 20 minutes. Prepare
Sesame Seed Dressing. Cut a thin slice off top of each roll; remove center of
roll (reserve for other use), leaving a 1/2-inch crust. Cover and set aside.
Remove chicken from marinade; drain. In medium nonstick frypan, place vegetable
oil and heat to medium-high temperature. Add chicken and saute about 5 minutes
or until fork tender. Add snow peas and saute 1 minute. Drain liquid from
frypan; add 1/2 cup Sesame Seed Dressing, stirring to coat chicken. To serve,
spread mustard equally on inside of each roll. Line each roll with 2 lettuce
leaves and top with onion rings. Spoon equal amounts of chicken mixture in each
roll. Place each Hoagie on a serving plate with cut-off top on the side. Sprinkle
tops with sesame seeds. Garnish with 3 Mandarin orange slices and a sprig of
mint on one side of each Hoagie. Serve remaining Sesame Seed Dressing in
separate bowl.

Sesame Seed Dressing:  In
blender container, place 1 cup vegetable oil, 1/2 cup sugar, 2/3 cup wine
vinegar, 1 tablespoon sesame seeds, 1 tablespoon chopped onion, 1 tablespoon
thawed orange juice concentrate and 1 tablespoon sweet mustard.  Blend 10 seconds on high.  Refrigerate; shake before serving.
