Thai-style chicken sandwich is another one of the east-meet-west dish that Martin Yan’s invented in this Martin Yan’s Asian Favorite cookbook. People often say “oh..it’s just another sandwich”. Sandwich is so ubiquitous and people don’t get impressed much by it anymore these days. Well, it doesn’t have to be boring. A little twist here and there, you can make your sandwich a gourmet one.
I always enjoy Thai food because of its great flavor from spices. You put that on a sandwich, it’s really going to make you proud of the sandwich you eat. Give it a try and when you have that in your lunch bag, I think you can’t wait to eat it!
