    spicyperspective's Note:

    The marinated meats and the pickled veggies are the standout items on this sandwich. In my version, the chicken is soaked in a fish sauce and lime juice marinade. I have a love-hate relationship with fish sauce. I LOVE the distinct flavor that greatly enhances meat, but HATE the putrid odor that seems to linger for hours. DON'T BE TEMPTED TO SKIP THE FISH SAUCE! It is a vital part of Vietnamese cooking. My suggestion with fish sauce is, hold your nose and pour away! The heinous odor will diminish once cooked!

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Mix the first six ingredients in a baking dish. Add the chicken breasts to the dish, cover, and refrigerate at least 1 hour. Longer is better!
    2. 2
      Stir the hot tap water and sugar in a medium bowl, until the sugar dissolves. Add the vinegar, salt, red pepper, sliced carrots and radishes. Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
    3. 3
      Heat the grill to medium. Grill the chicken breasts for 5 minutes per side. Remove from heat and cover them with foil to rest for 5 minutes.
    4. 4
      Open the sub rolls and grill the insides for about 1-3 minute—until toasted.
    5. 5
      Drain the pickled veggies. Slice the chicken into thin pieces.
    6. 6
      Spread mayo over in the sub rolls. Layer the cucumbers, chicken, pickled veggies, cilantro leaves and jalapeños in the rolls.
    7. 7
      Serve immediately!

      The marinade makes this sandwich great. I added some sriracha sauce to the mayo for some added spice. Yum. Thanks for sharing.

      I used a different recipe for the pickled vegetables, so I can't comment on that part.

      This was a great meal, and something different from what we would normally eat. The fish sauce was definitely stinky, but was definitely what made the marinade. I marinated the chicken & soaked the veggies for probably 3 hours. We had to cook the chicken inside in a pan because it was just too hot out to grill. The crunch of the pickled veggies & the cucumbers, with the flavor of the chicken was just sooooo tasty. My husband loved it and both of us can't wait to try making it again. Thanks for posting the recipe.

      My forehead is becoming all wrinkled in puzzlement at the revelation that I am basically a banh mi virgin. Never heard of 'em until this year and now I've concluded they need their own wiki page. These are FABULOUS. Note: used Diakon Radish & Carrot Salad in place of the diakon/carrot recommended.
