In trying times, we all need comfort food. And although your go-to dish may vary, many diners are clamoring for fried chicken sandwiches. Much like the gourmet burger trend a few years back, the deliciously simple idea of a piece of fried chicken sandwiched between a bun has provided a wonderful blueprint for chefs to build sought-after masterpieces on.
A few caveats: We avoided fast food (sorry, Popeyes' it sandwich of the moment) and Nashville-style chicken (that’s a story for another day). While many people will debate which truly is the best, none of the sandwiches on our list will disappoint.
