News flash: spicy chicken sandwiches aren’t just found in fast food restaurants. You can actually make them at home. All sarcasm aside, this one from Byron Bay Chilli Co carries much more flavor than you’ll find at a drive-thru window. What’s more, sliced roast beef or lamb can be substituted for chicken. Although it calls for the company’s lemongrass hot sauce, their Fiery Coconut Chilli Sauce, Heavenly Habanero, Green Jalapeno, Red Cayenne, Smokin’ Mango Chilli all will work well with this recipe too. And, of course, the sandwiches can be assembled, wrapped, and refrigerated overnight for grilling the next day, as well. Shoot, in five months you may even want to make a turkey version with your Thanksgiving leftovers…
