May the 4th be with you! To celebrate Star Wars Day, I made a vegan copycat Jedi Order Chicken Sandwich. One of the new Star Wars themed menu item served at the Galactic Grill at Disneyland Tomorrowland, the original sandwich is a 5-spice chicken breast with crispy green beans, pickled red onions, watercress and wasabi mayo.
For a vegan version, I first made the pickled red onions from the cookbook Vegan Eats World and mixed a bit of wasabi into vegan mayo. I wasn’t able to find watercress at the farmer’s market or the supermarket so I just left it off.
Now, if I was a real Jedi cook, I would have made the entire sandwich at home from scratch, but I’m not. So I didn’t. Instead, I hacked an order from the vegan restaurant chain Veggie Grill. I got the Santa Fe Crispy Chickin’ Sandwich without the spicy mayo, avocado and relish. With a side of Yukon fries and an order of the tempura breaded green beans. Then simply unwrapped the sandwich, spread the wasabi mayo onto the bun and replaced the raw red onion rings and tomato slices with pickled red onions and fried green beans.
While quite tasty, I have no idea if it’s even close to the original served at Disneyland. I like to think it’s better plus I got to try it without having to go to a galaxy far, far away…
