You can even switch it up and do a chicken biscuit for breakfast. Whew, talk about some great options!

The fact that I am seeing this after visiting Chicago earlier this year makes me want to return ASAP. Honey Butter Fried Chicken located in Chicago and seeing their name lets you know that they must have some great chicken options. Sandwich options include: the original fried chicken sandwich, honey butter fried chicken sandwich, honey buffalo chicken sandwich, and the bubbe fried chicken sandwich. Seriously, how many variations do you need? But we are not mad about this one.

Here comes California entering the conversation now. The Bird located in San Francisco has multiple other locations, but they have some great chicken sandwich options as well. Their fried chicken sandwich option comes classic or spicy and served with celery, house made apple slaw, mayo, and pickles on a fresh baked bun. Sounds about classic and perfect to me, right?

Savannah, Georgia is certainly one of the best spots when it comes to food. I have gone frequently and love their food options.

They have multiple chicken sandwich options and would be your go to when you’re there. Loaded with tons of toppings and on a french bread, you will probably need a nap after that.

Astro Doughnuts is serving up the best chicken sandwich. It kinda sounds weird when you say it, especially when you would think it is a doughnut spot, right? Well, they have more than what you think they have doughnuts and fried chicken. With their chicken sandwiches you get to pick your bun flavor, sauce, and extra add ons like pickles, honey butter, cheese, eggs, etc. Whether you want a bun or a doughnut, isn’t that crazy?
