I love Hanis. I just really do! Go get one from National Coney Island with a coney dog for dessert! Oh! And fries. Definitely, fries. Better yet, make one at home! And the lettuce and tomato makes this sandwich kinda Christmas-y, wouldn’t you say?
Anyhow, these are made on fluffy pita bread (like naan!) and are made with swiss and American cheese. I went the swiss and brie route though and it totally tastes similar! Brie melts similarly to American, and so that’s what’s up!
P.S. I totally recommend making the naan too. I’ve made THIS RECIPE from Half-Baked Harvest a few times and I love it so much I’d marry it. It’s awesome for casual pizza-ing, sandwiching, garlic bread-ing and obvz. hani-ing.
Homemade Hani (makes 8 sandwiches)
- 8 pieces of Naan (Make your own!)
- mayonaise or lemonnaise, optional
- 12 slices of swiss cheese
- 8 slices of brie
- 1 lb. chicken fingers, recipe below
- Keep your oven on at 350 from the chicken fingers. Place the naan on a baking sheet. Spread a thin layer of mayonnaise, if using, top with swiss and brie. Pop in the oven for 5-10 minutes or until the cheese is melted. Top with chicken fingers, lettuce and tomatoes. Enjoy!
Panko Crusted Chicken Fingers
- 1 lb. chicken breast
marinate it –
- 2 T olive oil
- 4 T champagne vineger
- 1 T garlic mustard
- salt + pepper
panko crust it –
- 1 1/2 cups flour
- 2 eggs, beaten
- 2 cups panko
- Sprinkle the chicken with salt and pepper on both sides. Whisk together the olive oil, vinegar, garlic mustard, pour over chicken in a shallow dish. Marinate the chicken for 30 minutes in the fridge.
- Preheat your oven to 350F. Line a large baking sheet with aluminum foil. Cut the marinated chicken into strips. Divide the flour, eggs, and panko into separate shallow bowls. Dredge the chicken in the flour, shaking off the excess, followed by the egg, and then the panko. Transfer to the prepared baking sheet. Continue with all the chicken, adding more flour or panko to the bowls as needed.
- Bake for 20 minutes or until cooked though. Serve on homemade hanis.
