  • 1/2 pound boneless chicken breast (cut into thin slices)
  • 1 jalapeno (thinly sliced)
  • 1 English cucumber (cut into strips)
  • 2 small shallots (finely chopped)
  • 1 clove garlic (finely chopped)
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • juice of 1 lime
  • 3 tablespoons fish sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 baguette
  • mayonnaise
  • sriracha sauce
  • handful cilantro

For the pickled carrots and daikon:

  • 1/2 cup carrots (cut into thin strips)
  • 1/2 cup daikon (peeled and cut into thin strips)
  • 1/4 cup warm water
  • 3 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3 teaspoons sugar


  1. Put carrots, daikon and ingredients for the pickling into a bowl. Stir well and set aside for 15-20 minutes.
  2. In a bowl, add lime juice, fish sauce, 1/2 tsp salt, fresh black pepper, 2 tbsp oil, shallots and garlic. Add chicken and mix well. Put the mixture and the chicken in a zip lock back, take out excess air and seal. Massage well and refrigerate for at least an hour.
  3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  4. Section the baguette into sandwich size portions, put in a cooking tray and toast for a few minutes (just so there is a bit of a crunchy texture). In a pan over medium/high heat, add chicken and shallots and cook until well done. Throw the pickling juice away and squeeze excess liquid from the carrots.
  5. Assemble banh mi and eat immediately.
