Hubby, Kiddo and I relocated to a town made famous in American Graffiti. Much has changed since the 1960s, but somehow even with growth, this Ag Town has managed to retain much of its small town feel. Most of the “scenery” from the movie was not filmed here. What was here back then was the famous cruise. Kids and cars driving in a big circle all night long. Modesto had the biggest cruse going, and it didn’t die out until the late 1970s. While Modesto has its share of fast-food restaurants and family diners, places like Red Robin and I-Max Theaters mean a drive up to Riverbank. While Riverbank is smaller than Modesto, it has more “modern” amenities.
A few months back, we decided to take a drive up to Riverbank. Hubby and Kiddo were having a Red Robin Burger craving and needed a fix. I wasn’t in the mood for a burger, so I went with a Chicken Filet Sandwich instead. It was good. Super messy to eat, but darn tasty.
Teriyaki Chicken Filet Sandwich
4 Tyson Chicken Breast Filet, thawed
1 Jar Kikkoman Teriyaki Baste and Glaze
8 pineapple slices, from can
8 slices Swiss cheese
4 Large sesame seed hamburger
4 Tablespoons Mayonnaise
8 tomato slices
1 cup shredded iceberg lettuce
In the Morning: Place the chicken breasts zip-lock bag. Place the pineapple slices in another zip-lock bag. Divide the teriyaki glaze between the two making sure both contents are well covered in glaze. Refrigerate for 4-6 hours.
In the Evening: Heat oven to 400 degrees. Place chicken breast on a rack over a rimmed baking sheet. Cook chicken in the hot oven for 6 to 8 minutes. Remove from oven, turn over. Place pineapple rings on rack along side chicken filet. Return to oven for another 6 minutes.
Meanwhile, spread the mayonnaise on both top and bottom buns. Place one chicken breast on each the bottom bun. Place 2 tomato slices, followed by 2 pineapple slices on each chicken breast, followed by the shredded lettuce and the bun top.
Serve and enjoy!
