Vietnamese Inspired Chicken Sandwiches Makes 4

This sandwich is something I created randomly one day after looking at a Vietnamese cookery book. It's inspired by the influence the French had on Vietnamese cooking. It's by no means authentic but it is delicious!

This is a fantastic recipe that is great for either lunch or dinner. Because of the crusty baguette, you can make the sandwiches a day ahead and store them in the fridge. They are fresh, healthy and filing, making them the perfect study food. They also travel really well.

  • 1 fresh baguette
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • Sweet chilli sauce to taste
  • Salad greens (I use a premade coleslaw mix and added some alfalfa sprouts and tomato)
  • 1/2 cucumber, peeled
  • 2 cups of cooked chicken (I used smoked, but use whatever you prefer or have on hand)
Mix the mayonnaise and sweet chilli together in a small bowl and set aside. The more heat the better in my opinion!

Using a vegetable peeler, peel about 10 thin slices of cucumber. This will become your garnish and adds a nice freshness to the sandwich.

Next, cut the baguette into four pieces. Split them down the middle and add a generous amount of the mayonnaise mixture to both sides of the break. Then layer some salad, add chicken, more salad and garnish with the cucumber slices. Simple as that.

For easy transportation, I recommend tying your sandwich with a piece of string (as in photo). Of course, if you're eating it at home, just go for it!

I hope you enjoy these sandwiches as much as I do :-)
