This filling sandwich for one can easily be doubled or quadrupled to serve a group and has all the elements of a well-balanced Asian dish. Cilantro and mint add a bright burst of freshness to the sweet-savory dressing which ties together beautifully with the spice of the meatballs. The cabbage amps up the crunch, providing a delightful textural contrast to the pillowy bread. While quinoa might seem like an unexpected addition, its mild flavor and chewy texture make it an excellent binder and helps keep the lean ground chicken nice and juicy. To save time, prepare the salad while the meatballs cook in the skillet.
