In the world of sandwiches, burgers are booming. While a juicy burger is pretty spectacular, chicken can be every bit as good when allowed to shine. The problem is many eateries don’t even give it a chance, resorting to the same formula of a grilled breast, sliced tomato, a few lettuce leaves, and maybe a smear of mayo. That’s hardly an inspiring meal. With a bit of imagination, though, the bird can be a perfect canvas for different flavors and cooking methods.
Try one of these six sandwiches, and you’ll convert to team chicken.
1. Pulled-Chicken Sandwiches
You don’t have to order takeout to enjoy a meal packed with the taste of India. This delicious sandwich from Food & Wine uses rotisserie chicken, curry powder, and jarred chutney to make a seriously flavorful sandwich in record time. The method is pretty similar to making a standard chicken salad. Blend the yogurt dressing in the food processor, then toss it with shredded chicken, cilantro, and scallions. A few leaves of arugula add a peppery bite that goes perfectly with the sweet and spicy salad.
