Best Season Suitable throughout the year
  • 100 grams Baguette or White Baton
  • 100 grams Chicken Breast
  • 25 grams Daikon
  • 12 grams Carrot
  • 12 grams Cucumber
  • 20 grams Honey
  • 1 Garlic Clove
  • 2 tablespoons Sriracha
  • 2 tablespoons Light Mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon White Vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon Hoisin
  • 1 tablespoon Soy Sauce
  • 0.5 tablespoons Ketchup
  • 0.5 tablespoons Five Spice
  • 1 tablespoon Maggi Seasoning
  • 1 Red Chilli
  • Fresh Coriander

  1. Begin by making the pickled slaw. Peel the carrot and daikon. Place a bowl on weighing scales then shred into matchsticks until you have 12g of carrot and 25g of daikon. Add white vinegar, warm water, 14g of the honey and a pinch of salt. Leave to sit for at least 30 mins (the longer the better).

  2. Next, butterfly the chicken or alternatively cut into 1-inch pieces and marinate with hoisin, soy sauce, the rest of the honey, five spice, ketchup, 1 garlic clove (crushed), salt and pepper to taste and set aside.

  3. If the baguette happens to be dry or stale, sprinkle some water on the top and place into a preheated oven at 200C for 2-3 mins.

  4. After a minimum of 10 mins marinating the chicken, slice through the baguette leaving the back intact to act as a hinge and hollow out the inside by removing approximately 1⁄3 of the bread.

  5. To prepare the sriracha dressing, combine the mayonnaise, sriracha and Maggi liquid seasoning in a bowl, mix well.

  6. Slice cucumbers and chillies but keep the coriander whole for garnish and set aside.

  7. Preheat a non-stick griddle/pan to medium-high heat, once heated add the chicken and leave to cook for 4-6 mins before flipping and cooking for a further 4-6 mins, ensuring it is cooked through. Remove the chicken and set aside to rest.

  8. To assemble the bahn mi, spread an equal amount of the sriracha dressing on the inside of both sides of the baguette. Slice and add chicken breast followed by the drained pickled slaw. Finally garnish with cucumber, chilli and coriander. Plate and serve.
