Grilled Chicken Bahn Mi

Prep Time: 4 - 24 hours

Cook Time: 6 - 12 minutes

Bahn Mi is a specialty sandwich made in Vietnam. It combines grilled chicken with a variety of flavors and textures, such as sweet, sour, crunchy, and soft. These unique and tasty flavor combination make this more than just a sandwich!


  • 1½ lbs. boneless skinless chicken thighs
  • 3 tbsp. good mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup cilantro leaves, rinsed and dried
  • 4 rolls (we like ours light and airy with a nice flaky crust)

Chicken Marinade

  • 3 tbsp. Fish sauce
  • 2 tbsp. Soy sauce, regular
  • 2 tbsp. maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp. brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp. garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp. ginger, minced
  • 1 tsp. toasted Sesame Oil
  • 4 scallions, minced
  • 1/2 tsp. fresh ground pepper
  • 1 tbsp. White Wine

Pickled Veggies

  • 1½ cups carrots, sliced matchstick style
  • 1 cup radish, thinly sliced rounds
  • 1 cup Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1 tbsp. kosher salt
  • 2 tbsp. granulated sugar


Begin by marinating the Chicken Thighs. In a medium bowl, combine chicken thighs with fish sauce, soy sauce, maple syrup, brown sugar, garlic, ginger, sesame oil, scallions, ground pepper, and white wine. Marinate 4-6 hours or over night in refrigerator.

Pickle veggies. In a medium bowl, combine carrots and radishes with Apple Cider Vinegar, salt and sugar. Refrigerate a minimum of 1 hour.

Preheat Fire Magic Grill to 450°F. Grill chicken thighs 3-4 minutes per side or until the internal temperature reads 160°F.

Pull from grill and allow to rest 5 minutes while assembling sandwiches.

We like to lightly warm or toast our buns on the grill for 1-2 minutes for added texture and flavor.

Slice bun in half and spread both sides with good quality Mayonnaise. Fill bun with Chicken, Pickled Veggies and Cilantro. Enjoy!
