Grilled Spicy Chicken Sandwich


The weather here in Vancouver was just perfect recently, not too cold and lots of sunshine. So, I jumped on the opportunity to fire-up the outdoor grill that’s been sitting idle and cooked up a flavorful Vietnamese inspired grilled chicken. Grilled chicken is fantastic on it’s own or as topping for salad, pizza, etc. Today, I'm using it for a Grilled Spicy Chicken Sandwich recipe. The “spicy” here comes from the mango salsa and not the chicken meat. So, just reduce the amount of chilies in the salsa recipe to suit your taste bud. FYI, I will be posting another recipe idea using grilled chicken tomorrow, check it out!

Ingredients

3 Potato Baguette (halved) or 6 French Sandwich Rolls, split horizontally
3 pcs Grilled Chicken Breast, slice thickly
1 Large Green Leaf Lettuce
Mango salsa
A handful of Cilantro leaves
Sea Salt and Black Pepper, or to taste

Grilled Chicken Breast
3 Pcs (about 530g) Chicken Breasts, boneless

Marinate
3 Tbsp Lime Juice (2 Limes)
2 Thai Bird’s Eye Chilies, finely chopped
2 Tbsp Finely Chopped Mint Leaves
3 Tbsp Finely Chopped Cilantro
1 ½ Tbsp Fish Sauce
¼ Cup Peanut Oil, or Vegetable Oil

Spicy Mango Salsa
4 Medium Ripe Mangoes, peeled, pitted and finely diced
½ Medium Sized Red Onion, finely diced
1 ½ - 2 Lime, juice
2-3 Red Chilies, seeded and finely chopped
10 Tbsp Orange Juice
4 Tbsp Chopped Fresh Cilantro
¼-½ tsp Ancho Chili Powder, or to taste
Sea Salt and Black Pepper or to taste

Method

In a medium bowl whisk all the marinade ingredients. Place the chicken pieces in a large resalable bag and pour in the marinade. Turn the bag to distribute the marinade and refrigerated for about 4 to 5 hours.

Make the mango salsa: Combine all the ingredients and season with salt and pepper. Cover and refrigerate until serving.

Preheat the grill for direct cooking over medium heat. Grill the chicken with the lid closed for about 5 to 6 minutes each side. Remove from the grill and allow to cool slightly before slicing.

Make the sandwich: Lightly grill the rolls, cut side down over a direct medium heat for about 40 seconds. Place one or two pieces of lettuce leaves on the bottom of each roll, chicken and top with some spicy mango salsa and cilantro. Serve immediately with extra salsa on the side.

Serves 6

Raw Energy Bars~Chocolate, Cashew, And Almond

I get energized everytime I make Raw Energy Bars at home. I have tried several recipes and flavors before; but, this Chocolate, Cashew, and Almond flavor is currently my favorite!

Not only are these bars good for you, they also taste great! So, if you are into raw energy bars, then you may want to try this recipe. If possible, please send me your feedback as well.

Dumplings

I'm actually laughing at myself! What have I got into? Trying to make dumplings?? Well, I have seen my late grandmother make them a long time ago. I can remember the ingredients but not the measurements! So, it took me about two hours to come up with the perfect recipes, and I'm glad I did! It was an instant hit! They were all gone, all gobbled up!

Make the dough first, add about 480 to 500g of all-purpose flour with 300ml of water. Knead the dough and let it rest. You should be able to make 40 dumplings with the dough. Meanwhile, prepare the filling for the dumplings. Click here for the dumpling wrappers video.
