Banh Mi- Style chicken Sandwiches
I've wanted to try a Banh Mi sandwich since watching "The Great Food Truck Race" on Food Network. This recipe didn't disapoint. These sandwiches are delicious, but messy. You can adjust how hot by serving the sandwiches with the sauces on the side.
1/4 cup light mayo
2 T sriracha (Thai hot sauce)
2 cooked chicken breasts, sliced
1/4 c sweet chili sauce
1 -2 jalapenos, thinly sliced
2/3 English cucumber, peeled and thickly sliced
Min and cilantro leaves
2 c. shredded lettuce
1/2 cup shredded carrots
1 T seasoned rice vinegar
To make the sandwich, spread both sides of the baguette with mayo and sriacha. Arrange chicken over the bottom halves and moisten with chili sauce. Add jalapenos, cucumber, and herbs, then drizzle with more sauce. Toss the lettuce and carrots with the vinegar, add to the sandwiches, then finish with more chili sauce. If you 'd like. Add top halves and serve with lots of napkins.
