We love how quickly and easily this delicious chicken sandwich comes together, and we designed this recipe to serve just you and only you as a delightful midday treat. Of course, you can scale it up if you'd like too. While the shredded carrots and red onion are marinated in a cilantro, lime juice, and garlic chili paste mixture, cook the chicken breast and make a zesty, minty mayonnaise. Spread the mayonnaise on a baguette, top with the chicken and softened veggies, and your hearty sandwich is ready to enjoy. You can also wrap it up in foil and cut in half crosswise if you need to take it with you on the go.
