Ingredients

  • cup white vinegar

  • ¼ cup sugar

  • teaspoon salt

  • 1 cup shredded carrots

  • ¼ cup light mayonnaise or salad dressing

  • 1 - 2 teaspoon Asian chili sauce (Sriracha sauce)

  • ½ teaspoon reduced-sodium soy sauce

  • teaspoon sugar

  • 1 8 ounce French bread baguette, halved lengthwise

  • Breast meat from one small purchased roasted chicken (about 8 ounces breast meat), skin discarded

  • of a long seedless cucumber, cut into thin spears (about 3 ounces)

  • 1 fresh jalapeño chile pepper, thinly sliced* (optional)

  • cup fresh cilantro leaves

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 425°F. In a small bowl combine vinegar, the 1/4 cup sugar, and the salt; stir until sugar dissolves. Add carrots; toss well. Let stand for 15 minutes.

  2. Meanwhile, in another small bowl combine mayonnaise, Asian chili sauce, soy sauce, and the 1/8 teaspoon sugar.

  3. Place baguette halves, cut sides up, on rack in oven; bake about 5 minutes or just until warm and lightly crisped. Spread mayonnaise mixture over both sides of baguette. Slice chicken breast; arrange slices on baguette halves. Drain carrots, pressing to drain off excess liquid; arrange over chicken. Top with cucumber and, if desired, chile pepper. Sprinkle with cilantro leaves. Cut into four portions.

*

Because chile peppers contain volatile oils that can burn your skin and eyes, avoid direct contact with them as much as possible. When working with chile peppers, wear plastic or rubber gloves. If your bare hands do touch the peppers, wash your hands and nails well with soap and warm water.

Cooking Tip:

The vinegar mixture begins to pickle the carrots, softening them and adding bright flavor with zero fat.
