Classic Chicken Sandwich

classic chicken sandwich burger recipe

A classic chicken sandwich is a great alternative to a regular burger. In fact, it pretty much is a burger - a chicken burger!

It's hearty, tasty and you can load it up with all your favorite condiments and toppings.

Traditionally, the chicken sandwich is made with a boneless, skinless fried chicken breast. But for a healthier recipe you could substitute grilled or broiled chicken breast instead, which tastes great as well.

Of course, you can also find breaded chicken breasts in the frozen section of your grocery store. It all depends on your individual taste preference.

This recipe is for one sandwich. Feel free to multiply it for more servings!


  • 1 fried *chicken fillet or breast per sandwich
  • 1 tsp. mayonnaise
  • 1 tsp. honey mustard
  • slice of Swiss cheese
  • slice of tomato
  • slice of onion
  • 3 dill pickle slices
  • 1 green-leaf lettuce leaf
  • black pepper
  • kaiser roll

Optional additional toppings:

  • guacamole
  • chipotle
  • BBQ sauce
  • grilled onions
  • grilled pineapple
  • grilled or sauteed mushrooms


This sandwich is really easy to make. Cook your chicken in whatever way you love (fry, saute, broil, grill, etc,) put it on the bun and load it up!

For the least amount of mess, try this order:

Bun, Mayo, Chicken, Cheese, Onion, Tomato, Pickles, Lettuce, Pepper, Mustard, Bun. Take a bite, and enjoy!

Serve with fries, salad or coleslaw as a side.

*hint: It's a good idea to tenderize your chicken breast to flatten it so that it sits on the bun more evenly.
