Although I experienced a lot of confusion with this recipe (I don't know what's the matter with me lately), I believe I kept to the spirit of it and the end result was a fabulous flavor experience! I didn't understand how 4 oz. of chicken would work in a sandwich for 6, so I ended up using 1 lb. of thin-sliced chicken breasts, that I marinated as instructed. For the carrots, I shredded them into ribbons with the vegetable peeler and pickled them with the onion liquid (and the onions). For the cucumber, I sliced it very thinly and tossed it with a generous amount of chopped cilantro. For the sauce, I combined generous amounts of both mayo and sriracha. When the chicken had marinated for an hour, I removed it from the bag and grilled it on the outdoor grill. However, a lot of the shallots were clinging to them, so I wasn't sure how to put the shallots on after the chicken was flipped, as the recipe instructed. I just grilled them as I could, but lost some of the shallots in the process. When the chicken was done, I set all the components on the counter, and assembled sandwiches individually. The flavor was outstanding, and each component stood out without competing with each other. This so different and was a welcome change of pace. Thanks for sharing (and hopefully someday I will be able to figure out the instructions)!
This was delicious!! The flavors came together beautifully... spicy, tangy, salty... refreshing touches from the cucumber and cilantro. Wonderful! Thanks for sharing! ZWT9
