I don’t have a video for this recipe.
If I had a photo, I would most certainly use it. That is... unless the photo I have sucks. For now, you'll just have to picture a big heaping helping of

Sambal Chicken Sandwich

Grilled chicken in summer is classic, and with the Sambal, this sandwich is a new favorite of mine. Serves 4 appetizer or 2 hungry people


  • 2 chicken breasts, flattened 1/2’’ thickness
  • 1/4 cup Sambal chili sauce (keep a tablespoon for mayo mix)
  • 2 garlic cloves crushed
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • big pinch Kosher salt
  • 4 slices white Sourdough bread
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 slices Munster cheese
  • 1 tablespoon mayonaise (I use Japanese Mayonaise - Kewpie)
  • 1/2 head romaine lettuce, chopped


  1. Mix Sambal, olive oil, garlic, salt and then coat flattened chicken with sauce mix
  2. Cover, and marinate the chicken refridgerate for 1 hour at least, 3 hrs is great... overnight is perfect, but whatever you can do
  3. Preheat griddle or skillet to high, cook chicken presentation side first for 3-4 minutes, flip and repeat but lay the cheese on top to melt (or grill on medium, 8 minutes a side)
  4. Butter bread, grill in hot skillet until golden
  5. Mix 1 tablespoon Sambal with mayo
  6. Build your sandwich: Bread, mayo mix, lettuce, chicken with melted cheese, bread.
