How To Make a 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.
  • While the chicken is marinating, make your kefir cheese spicy sandwich spread
  • After the chicken has marinated, cook it whatever way you prefer.
  • Assemble the gut-healthy spicy chicken sandwich—kefir cheese spread on the sourdough, chicken placed lovingly, then topped with sauerkraut and fermented peppers.
