My favorite sandwich at Subway is their Sweet Onion Chicken Teriyaki Sauce, so we decided to try it out at home! I found a recipe for the Sweet Onion sauce over on Food.com, and we tried it out with this week's bargain Perdue Short Cuts . . . so it was super easy and pretty inexpensive! While it wasn't exactly like the Subway sauce, it was pretty close and yummy for a busy weeknight meal.
Here's the recipe if you'd like to “cook” it up for your family . . .
