I was inspired to make a sandwich out of some great chicken thighs I got on sale... SO instead of my usual bbq...I decided on a take-off on the different chicken dishes at my local Chinese restaurants... all on a soft Naan bread cushion!

This sandwich is incredible! We fell in love with the chicken marinade and can't wait to do some experimenting with it in other dishes as well. This yummy recipe is truly a delight for the senses... bravo. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
