Thai chili chicken sandwich

Did you have a great weekend?
Was it filled with booze, friends and ninja dancing?
Did you picknick in bed the next day because you were too hungover to sit at a table?
Yeah... me too.

Did you also have that kind of twelve hour nap that left your face barely recognizable from marks from the pillow case folds?
No? Just me? Hm... 

This thai chicken sandwich is a perfect pick-me-up after an awesome night out, but can also be served as a fancy lunch with girlfriends or an exotic dinner for two.

This one is definitely going into my AWESOME-FOR-ANY-OCCASION-YOU-CAN-IMAGINE-folder.
