Sticky Chicken Naan Sandwich Recipe @pinch

This chicken sandwich is a very flavorful sandwich. The chicken thigh marinade is filled with Asian flavors. It is heavy on sesame oil, so if that's not your favorite we suggest cutting back a little. You can use the marinade on chicken breasts, steak, or pork, too. Filled with texture, we liked Lori's twist on her take haveout favorite. We found round pieces of Naan bread and opted to use those for this recipe. I was inspired to make a sandwich out of some great chicken thighs I got on sale. So instead of my usual bbq, I decided on a take haveoff on the different chicken dishes at my local Chinese restaurants... all on a soft Naan bread cushion!
