This grilled chicken jibarito is packed with juicy tender chicken breast, melted cheese, fresh veggies and smeared with spicy garlic mayo inside a crispy tostone (twice-fried plantain).
The Puerto Rican sandwich was originally created by Juan Figueroa in Humboldt Park, Chicago.
Once you bite into it you’ll feel the crunch, creaminess of the mayo and the texture of the grilled chicken tucked inside. Pure perfection!
If you aren’t a chicken or steak lover, try a vegetarian version smothered in garlic butter sauce. Just make sure you don’t kiss your date right after.
Since you’re still reading, either the picture got your attention or you must be really hungry. So share the Jibarito experience and get messy.
See you in my next post.
