I made three types of banh mi for our recent DC-versary BBQ (I’ll post the menu later) and this one was a particular hit. Super easy marinade, and works really well in the banh mi. You could also have this chicken plain or with noodles (I threw some into leftover lo mein for dinner tonight).
For the chicken
6 chicken breasts, sliced
3 stalks lemongrass, chopped (soft parts)
3 garlic cloves, crushed
1-2 tbsp ginger
For the banh mi
Baguettes, cut into fifth
quick pickled carrots (carrots soaked in rice vinegar, salt and sugar)
mayo, fish sauce and Sriracha for serving
Marinade chicken overnight in remaining ingredients.
Grill chicken on both sides until cooked through. Serve in a sandwich topped with banh mi toppings.
