However, perhaps, the highlight dish composed using this much-loved ingredient is the one and only, Chicken Sandwich. It is a unique combination of soft bread, tender Chicken, sliced cucumber, tomatoes, mayonnaise, ketchup, and some spices.
Right now, I have described you the classic version of a Chicken sandwich that you would have eaten a lot of times. But, are you craving something different and a little spiced up?
Well, then you need to try out these amazing and delicious Chicken sandwich variations!
Buffalo Chicken Sandwich
Buffalo chicken sandwich features an unrivaled blend of paprika, red pepper flakes, cayenne pepper, garlic powder, butter, red hot sauce, tomatoes, flour, and iceberg lettuce. All ingredients coat the major ingredients and serve as spicy fillers. It’s preferable to fry the coated patty and sandwich in olive oil. It takes merely about 20 minutes to prepare the heavy and fulfilling buffalo sandwich.
The major ingredient in this sandwich happens to chicken meat. Be it, chicken breasts or wings. It only has to be in a heavy quantity than usual. Let’s say, for one sandwich; you will need about five chicken wings. You can, of course, adjust the quantity as per your appetite. But originally, it’s supposed to be heavy.
Chicken Parmesan Sliders
Sliders, also called mini burgers, refers to sandwiches made with 2-inches small buns. A plateful of Sliders is an idealistic choice for get-together parties, weekend dinners, and, most importantly, snacking.
Although Sliders tend to be generally tasty, these Chicken Parmesan Sliders give you an out-of-the-world, heavenly experience. The combination of Parmesan cheese and Chicken makes this variation delicious.
To make Chicken Cheese Sliders, you need sweet bun rolls/ dinner rolls, Parmesan, sauce of any choice (marinara sauce, ketchup, mayonnaise, etc.) Breaded Chicken. In a square glass pan, assemble all the ingredients and bake to melt the cheese. For added flavor, you can make a paste of melted butter, garlic powder, crushed red pepper flakes, Parmesan, and fresh basil. Then, spread this paste on top of the assembled Sliders before baking.
Chicken Waldorf Sandwich
Waldorf Sandwiches are a mix of the village, forest, and urban feel just as the word Waldorf in its name suggests.
To prepare this sandwich, all you need to do is place some toothsome salad between two medium-sized slices of raisin bread. The salad can be a mix of your choice. Still, usually, a Waldorf sandwich salad comprises celery, apples, mayonnaise, honey mustard, walnuts, dried cranberries, plain yogurt, lemon juice, and lettuce.
And as you may already be able to guess, Chicken happens to be the fulfilling element of these sandwiches. But if you like, you can also go with tuna or canned salmon. Usually, it serves as a side dish on a menu. And that tells that it’s not as fulfilling as other sandwiches on the list. Perhaps, it’s better to keep it a part of high-tea and birthday party menus.
Chicken & Waffle Sandwich
Now, here comes one of the crunchiest and time-taking chicken sandwiches. It takes about 48 hours and 15 minutes to prepare one Chicken and waffle sandwich.
It takes time and effort, yes. But let me tell you, the effort’s all worth it. The end product is crispy buttermilk chicken with maple syrup and smokey bacon sandwiched in two crispy and crunchy waffles, which get often splattered with honey and butter. The actual flavor is much more dreamy and satisfying than the description, I assure you!
Tropical Chicken Sandwich
Just as the name says, tropical chicken sandwiches are a mix of sweet and salty. First, the shredded chicken inside gets fried in coconut, which gives it a sweet, salty, and crispy flavor. Next, cilantro, avocado, cucumber, and chili aioli adds more adventure to the collective flavor. It also boosts the nutrition and the flavor.
