Five-Spice Chicken Banh Mi Recipe
The end result of this recipe is very good but the proportions are way off.

1. As written, the recipe produces six cups of pickled vegetables for six sandwiches, which is INSANE. 2 cups is more than enough. If you can't find a small daikon, use jicama or just stick to carrots. (They all have the same flavor and texture after marination regardless.)
2. Unless you have very small limes, only use the juice of HALF a lime. Otherwise, the spicy mayo is too runny.
3. Similarly, unless you have very small shallots, only use two.
4. 2 tablespoons of fish sauce completely overwhelm the flavor of the chicken. Use 1T at most.
