Crispy Chicken Cilantro Sandwich


When I used to go shopping at our local Japanese market, there was this bakery shop inside that carried these amazing Chicken Cilantro Sandwiches!

They were creamy, packed with flavors of cilantro and oh just so good!

But of course being low-carb/keto now, I haven’t had one for a long time until I decided to take matters into my own hand and just make a Crispy Chicken Cilantro Sandwich myself at home!

Surprisingly, it really wasn’t all that hard to make and only required 4 ingredients to assemble.  The hardest part was probably waiting for the low-carb/keto tortillas to bake!

For this recipe, I decided to experiment with low carb tortillas, since I have been seeing them being baked and turned into chips.

Each tortilla contains 4g of carbs which we cut into fourths.  Then we sandwich them together to make these delicious cilantro chicken sandwiches!

Now, if you were expecting sandwiches with soft bread, these aren’t it.  These are crunchy chip like pieces of tortillas used in place of traditional bread to make a sandwich with a yummy mix of cilantro, chicken, and Kewpie Mayo.

And if you’re not a fan of cilantro, I implore you to still give these a try!

I myself have never been a fan of cilantro but for whatever reason, the mixture of chicken, cilantro and Kewpie Mayo really tastes amazing sandwiched between crispy baked tortillas, even for the none cilantro lover like myself!

For this recipe, we used shredded rotisserie chicken that we buy weekly from our local Costco but any kind of chicken will work with this recipe.  I have even tried canned chicken breasts and it still came out delicious!

Now, let’s get started!
