This Thai Peanut Chicken sandwich is sweet, savory, creamy and crunchy. It’s definitely not your average sandwich and deserves the distinction of being a main dish meal.
If you’ve been visiting for a while, then you know my mother didn’t love cooking the way I do. Sandwiches in my house were something between two pieces of store bought white bread. Fancy meant that it also had mayonnaise or cheese on it. It took me a long time to redefine what a good sandwich is. This Thai Peanut Chicken Sandwich is definitely a good sandwich.
A few weeks ago John and I went on a bike ride and ended up at one of our favorite places to eat. I was looking at the menu, and while I didn’t order it, there was this sandwich that looked interesting to me. I took this sandwich idea and started deconstructing it and putting my own spin on it. I think that’s what food people do don’t they?
To assure that the chicken breasts were plump and moist, they were infused with a delicious ginger marinade before they hit the grill. The chicken is then topped with bacon, peanut sauce, and a sprinkling of bean sprouts, all on a homemade buttery brioche bun. This sandwich is sweet, savory, creamy and crunchy. It is definitely not your average sandwich and deserves the distinction of being a main dish meal.
If you are looking for a delicious side dish to go with this sandwich, my Soba Noodle Salad would be a great option.
