Notes about this recipe

    Big winner at our house. I went with about 1kg of chicken and increased the balance of the ingredients accordingly. Cooked for about 10 minutes with about half in a cast iron grill pan and the other half in regular cast iron pan. The grill pan did give lovely grill marks but I found the regular pan resulted in a more caramelized result. Overall the flavours are very nice and this is easy to put together. I do agree you need to butterfly the thighs to end up with even cooking. Served with carrot pickle, jalapeno, cucumber, kewpie mayo, maggi, and cilantro. Delicious!!!

    I used this for banh mi, as the recipe intends. I enjoyed making them. of course, using a grill pan indoors, there will be smoke. I've been enjoying the sandwiches a lot. Do make sure to butterfly the thighs open as Andrea instructs.

    This is a fantastic prep for chicken thighs. We had a great time making banh mi with this recipe. I could see it being good on a dinner salad too, or made into a traditional chicken salad with a Vietnamese twist.
