Cuban Chicken Sandwich

I saw this recipe on Food Network's Eat Street. It involves marinating the chicken with orange juice, i was instantly intrigued. I did change it just a little bit to suit my taste.

All the credit goes to the 'Bongo Brothers' food truck in NYC.

The sandwich is super juicy while the orange juice adds a tiny bit of tangy flavor to it. Really delicious!
I like to eat mine with Onion rings, but you can totally skip that if you dont like it. Serve with fries.

(This recipe serves 2. You can easily double or triple the recipe)

You'll need :
(For Chicken Marination)
1 chicken breast (or boneless chicken thighs) cut in cubes
Juice of 1 Orange (mandarins, sweet limes, or whatever floats your boat in the category)
Juice of 1 lemon
Salt to taste
1/2 tsp Red Chili Flakes
1/2 tsp of Black Pepper
1/4 tsp Oregano (dried or fresh, whichever you can find, I used dried)
1/4 tsp Cumin powder (Zeera powder)
1 tsp of Olive Oil (or any other oil)
1-2 cloves of roughly chopped Garlic

(For the Sauce)
3 tbsp Mayonnaise 
1 tbsp Cream
1 tsp White Vinegar
Salt to taste
pinch of Black Pepper
1 tsp Tomato ketchup
1 tbsp of finely chopped Onion

(For Onion Rings)
1 large Onion (cut into medium thickness rings)
4 tbsp All Purpose Flour (Maida)
4 Tbsp of Corn Flour
Salt to taste
Buttermilk (to make the batter)
NOTE: Make your own buttermilk by adding a tsp of vinegar to 1 cup of milk. Leave for 10-15 minutes. Than use as required.

(Other Ingredients)
Buns (store bought, homemade, your choice)

NOTE: This can also be made into a wrap, using flat bread or tortillas.

Add all the ingredients of the marinade in a bowl. Mix together.

Add chicken pieces. Mix to coat evenly than leave for 1 hour in the fridge.

Fry the chicken with all the juices till cooked through and the marinade becomes thick and saucey.

Like so.

(For The Sauce)

Add everything in a bowl

Mix together. Keep aside.

(For Onion Rings)

Mix flour, corn flour, salt and red chili powder in a bowl.

Add buttermilk to make a dropping consistency batter.

Dip Onion rings in the batter and deep fry

till golden brown.

(To Assemble)

Apply a generous amount of sauce to the bottom of the bun. 

Add lettuce, chicken, and onion rings.

How gorgeous is this?!
