Serves: 2
Ingredients
  • 2 slices of chicken breast
  • 1 baguette
  • 1 cup cabbage, thinly sliced
  • ¼ cup fennel, thinly sliced
  • 2 cucumbers, thinly sliced
  • 1 yellow bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • ⅓ cup rice vinegar
  • ½ cup soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 1 red chili, thinly sliced
  • parsley or cilantro, roughly chopped for garnish
  • 1 tablespoon sunflower seed oil
Instructions
  1. Marinate the chicken breasts in ⅓ cup soy sauce, 1½ tablespoons of honey, ½ tablespoon sesame oil, brown sugar, and salt and pepper for at least 1 hour.
  2. Combine the thinly sliced cabbage, fennel, cucumbers and bell pepper in a bowl and dress with the remaining soy sauce, rice vinegar, honey, and sesame oil.
  3. Heat a grill pan on high heat and add 1 tablespoon sunflower seed oil. Once hot, add the marinated chicken breasts. Cook for 1-2 minutes on each side without moving so that they'll get those beautiful grill marks. Once cooked through, remove the chicken breasts from the pan.
  4. Slice a baguette to the size of your choice and toast in the oven for 1-2 minutes. Assemble the sandwiches by adding your chicken breast, cabbage slaw and garnishing with red chilis and parsley. You can also add some Sriracha for an added kick!
