Inspired by a Vietnamese banh mi sandwich, this recipe is an awesome way to use leftover chicken. If you have a little extra time, let the carrot and cucumber marinate in some rice vinegar before taco time. —Melissa Halonen, Spokane, Washington

"easy recipe. While family liked it well enough, I was informed that they preferred my Thai Wraps recipe instead. So this one probably won't make it on the rotation list. Bottom line if I already didn't have a similar recipe, this one would be a 5 and on the rotation."
