Description Vietnamese Bread Roll Sandwich with Chicken Floss (Bánh Mì Gà)

Vietnamese Bread Roll Sandwich with Chicken Floss (Bánh Mì Gà) literally "chicken bread", is a unique version of Vietnamese Sandwich (Bánh Mì) in Da Nang. Unlike normal Vietnamese Sandwich, it is round in shape and is filled with cotton meat originally made from chicken (hence the name), mayonnaise, carrot and green papaya pickle. Vietnamese Bread Roll Sandwich with Chicken Floss (Bánh Mì Gà) is very inexpensive and simple, yet super tasty and addictive. Who can resist the sweet and salty taste of cotton meat, sourness of carrot and papaya pickle, spiciness of chilli sauce, and fatness of mayonnaise... all combined in a crispy hot bread roll? I know I can't.

Ingredients

  • For the pickles
  • 1 cup green papaya/ daikon/ kohlrabi shredded
  • 1/2 cup carrots shredded

Method Vietnamese Bread Roll Sandwich with Chicken Floss (Bánh Mì Gà)

1, To make the pickles, combine the shredded green papaya, carrots, sugar, vingegar and salt together. Mix well and it’s ready to eat in 15 minutes. You can keep it in the refrigerator for a few weeks to use for other dishes as well
2, To make home-made mayonnaise, separate the egg yolks from the white. While constantly whisking the yolk, add vegetable oil VERY slowly. Sprinkle with some salt and pepper to enrich the flavor. As the mixture thickens, add a few drops of lime juice.
3, To assemble the sandwich, slit the bread roll lengthwise to open. Spread the inside (both upper and lower halves) with 1-2 tbsp mayonnaise and some chili sauce. Add a few cucumber slices and some of the pickles. And finally the cotton meat!
