Bánh mì gà, literally “chicken bread”, is a unique version of bánh mì in Da Nang. Unlike normal bánh mì, it is round in shape and is filled with cotton meat originally made from chicken (hence the name), mayonnaise, carrot and green papaya pickle.

Ingredients

  • 1 carrot, julienned
  • 1 package green papaya
  • sugar
  • vinegar
  • water
  • 2 egg yolk
  • 200ml (0.85 cup) oil
  • salt
  • pepper
  • lemon juice
  • 1 cucumber
  • bread roll
  • chili sauce
  • cotton chicken

Preparation

1.  Cut carrot and green papaya into julienne strips. In a container, combine sugar, the vinegar, and water (1:1:1 ratio) and stir to dissolve the sugar. Add in the carrot and green papaya strips. The brine should cover the vegetables. Let the vegetables marinate in the brine for at least 3 hours before eating. You can keep it in the refrigerator for a week to use for other dishes as well.

2.  Separate 2 egg yolks from the white. While constantly whisking the yolk, add 200ml oil VERY slowly. Sprinkle with some salt and pepper to enrich the flavor. As the mixture thickens, add a few drops of lime juice. For more photos and recipes, please visit my blog at Danang Cuisine.
