The 'Chicken Piri Piri' sandwich that's served at Toronto's Brock Sandwich is a bestselling menu item that's gained plenty of attention for its simple ingredient list that packs a flavorful punch.

The chicken sandwich consists of a crusted cutlet that's served alongside a traditional house-made Portuguese hot sauce, as well as charred onions and a lettuce leaf. This burger-like dish puts a flavorful new twist not only on flavor, but on health as well with the choice of a leaner meat as an alternative to beef.

With the expansion of foodie culture, the demand for spicy foods has been steadily increasing. This is particularly true since many Millennial consumers continue to crave globally inspired ethnic foods that take inspiration from piquant Asian and Hispanic flavors.
