Grilled Chicken Banh Mi

This Banh Mi sandwich is pretty close to being what I grew up on with a few exceptions: I added a Sriracha mayo, I used grilled chicken vs pork and for the bread I swapped out the French baguette for La Brea’s Reserve Sourdough Demi-Baguette.

I prefer the sourdough because it adds a subtle tart bite against the pickled veggies and the sweetly flavored-beef. Of course like all La Brea’s bread I love the moist interior and hearty crust—the two key elements that really texturally stand-out against the crunch of the veggies.

Now here’s the exciting news, select Krogers are now carrying La Brea’s Reserve Sourdough Demi-Baguette and (French bread) – look for it in their specialty cheese department. I love this accessibility, for this simple banh mi recipe and many more to come. Check out their site for locations on where to buy and a coupon for your next visit to your local Kroger.

Before you get started with making this, here are a few notes to keep in mind:

  • Don’t skip pickling the daikon and carrots. It’s a key component. You can buy it pre-made in most Asian markets or make it yourself (recipe below).
  • Use a good high quality bread like La Brea’s Demi-Baguettes. It’s worth mentioning you definitely want to avoid breads, that are pillow-soft like a hot dog bun or anything of that textural class. This is a sandwich after all, so getting the bread right makes or breaks this recipe.

    I, too, am having trouble finding the recipe. Love Bahn Mi and would like to try making this. I even pinned one of the images to Pinterest and opened the image there… no luck. Help!
