How To Make Banh Mi At Home

Banh Mi is a great baguette sandwich made with crispy baguettes and baked chicken and pickled vegetables. It is a delicious sandwich and is very savory and flavorful. It is also simple to make.

Banh Mi is a sandwich from Vietnamese cuisine. Its main attraction is the crispy short baguette which can be filled with different meats and pickled vegetables. You can use any kind of meat in it and it tastes absolutely delicious. You can find Banh Mi in any Vietnamese restaurant, but I prefer the homemade version.

To make banh mi, add rice vinegar, water, and sugar to a saucepan. Stir it and then pour this mixture over the sliced carrot, radish, and onion and set it aside. Season the chicken breast and bake it. Also, slice and toast the baguette. Then, spread mayonnaise on it. Top with sliced chicken, pickled vegetables, cucumber, jalapeno, and cilantro. Top with the other half.
