Grilled Thai Chicken Sandwich

http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/Thai_chicken_sandwich.html

From EatingWell:  September/October 2012

Juicy grilled chicken, onions and peppers combine with a Thai-inspired sauce in this chicken sandwich recipe. We love how the flatbreads made from whole-wheat dough sop up the extra sauce. If you have one large (12-ounce) chicken breast instead of two smaller (6-ounce) ones, cut it in half horizontally before grilling so the chicken cooks in the time specified in this recipe.

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Preheat grill to medium-high.
  2. Whisk coconut milk, peanut butter, lime juice, 1 tablespoon chile-garlic sauce and soy sauce in a bowl until well combined.
  3. Working on a lightly floured surface, divide dough into 5 equal pieces. Roll each piece into a 6-inch disk with a rolling pin or press into a disk with your hands. Using 1 1/2 teaspoons oil, brush one side of each disk.
  4. Oil the grill rack (see Tip); place the dough, oiled-side down, on the grill and cook until light brown and puffed, 1 to 2 minutes. Brush the dough with the remaining 1 1/2 teaspoons oil, flip and grill until cooked through, but still a little soft, 1 to 2 minutes more. Wrap in foil to keep warm.
  5. Brush chicken with the remaining 1 tablespoon chile-garlic sauce. Place the chicken, bell pepper and onion on the grill. Grill the chicken, turning once, until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part registers 165°F, 10 to 14 minutes. Grill the pepper and onion, turning once, until lightly charred and cooked through, 8 to 10 minutes.
  6. Slice the pepper and onion. Toss with 1/2 cup of the reserved dressing in a medium bowl. When the chicken is cool enough to handle, slice or shred into bite-size pieces. Top flatbreads with equal portions of the vegetables and chicken; drizzle with the remaining dressing and sprinkle with cilantro. Fold to eat.
