Bbq’d Chik’n Sandwich with Tangy coleslaw, Roasted potatoes and Sugar snap peas
Summer always means BBQ’s and for a vegetarian that means a whole lot of boca burgers. Which I am totally good with, I do LOVE Boca Chik’n Patties. But I have been realizing that my meat eating friends and even my hubby have been more adventurous than just the regular hamburgers and dogs this summer. I decided I wanted to try something different too! I made a glaze for the chik’n and some coleslaw (minus any mayo- yuck!) and made a delicious sandwich. Sugar Snap Peas are a total summer food for me. Mmmm I love them cooked or raw (although raw makes my lips totally swell up and itch- yep its a weird food allergy but I can’t help still eat them raw) Anyways, they totally remind me of my cousins. We use to go strawberry and pea picking when we were little. We would have massive pea fights in the fields. It was awesome. We would come away from the day stained red and pulling peas out of hair.
A package of any kind of fake chik’n. I am sure every vegetarian has their own preference. I know I do.

Sugar Snap Peas
A package of preshredded Cabbage

1 Tbsp. cider vinegar
2 Tbsp. olive oil
2 Tbsp. Rice Vinegar
1 Tbsp. Honey

1. Preheat over to 350. Wash and cut potatoes in half. Place in a bowl and mix together with paprika, garlic salt, parsley, pepper and olive oil. Spread evenly onto a baking sheet and cook about 25 mins.
2. In saucepan combine grill sauce, honey, mustard powder, mustard and vinegar. Bring to a simmer over medium heat, stirring and then removing from heat. Set a aside for a moment
3. Prepare coleslaw: In large bowl whisk together oil, vinegar, and honey. Add celery seeds and coleslaw mix and toss together.
4. Take chik’n pieces, spread glaze on top. Then either on a BBQ or on a stove top in a frying pan, cook Chik’n for a few mins each side. Applying more glaze as desired.
5. Steam some sugar snap peas.
6. For the last few mins turn the broiler on in the oven to toast up the potatoes.
7. Pile it all on a plate together. Enjoy with some lemonade, good friends and hopefully a beautiful backyard.
I will have a recap of my trip to NYC last week with Julie and some pretty pictures of the LOFT holiday Preview Party later this afternoon!!
