- Complete your basic sourdough recipe for the bread of your spicy chicken sandwich.
- Next, marinate your chicken in the spicy yogurt marinade for chicken.
- Allow your chicken to marinate for 1 to 4 hours—1 hour if you are in a rush to start dinner and 4 hours if you really want that spicy kick in your sandwich.
