  • 1 batch Grilled Naan (8 naan)
  • 2 Barbecue-rubbed Wood-Fired Rotisserie Chickens
  • 2 teaspoons Blis 9 sherry vinegar
  • 4 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons prepared mayonnaise
  • 8 radishes
  • ¼ red onion
  • 1 avocado
  • Baby romaine lettuce, about 3 ounces
  • Honey
  • 8 ounces farmer’s cheese
  • Flaky sea salt, like Maldon

Prepare the naan in advance (see recipe).

Once the chickens (see recipe) come off the grill to rest, make the dressing for the greens. Combine the vinegar, olive oil and mayonnaise in a medium-size bowl and whisk vigorously to emulsify. Reserve.

Slice the radishes and onion very thinly on a mandolin. Reserve.

Slice the avocado and reserve.

Remove the chickens from the rotisserie spit and break down the meat. I slice the breasts with a knife and tear apart the dark meat with my fingers, cutting the browned skin into small pieces with a knife.

Drizzle the naan with honey. Top with a smear of farmer’s cheese. Add some chicken on top of the cheese. Toss the romaine in the dressing and distribute onto the sandwiches. Finish off with avocado, onion, radish and a sprinkle of flaky salt. Serve warm.
