    Southern Polar Bear's Note:

    This is a wonderful alternative to the standard chicken sandwich. It is from the April 1999 issue of Bon Appetit.

      Mmm, so delicious! We loved the blend of flavors - spicy and tangy! I made a few changes based on what I had on hand - whole wheat rolls instead of French and spinach instead of leaf lettuce. I'll definitely be making this again - thank you!
