Fried chicken is good. Everyone loves fried chicken! I mean, don’t quote me on this, but even vegetarians love fried chicken. People even put it between two slices of bread and call it good. Putting fried chicken in a sandwich is a good idea, but I would rather have my fried chicken sans bread. Mendocino Farms does a sandwich called the “Not So Fried” chicken sandwich. It has shaved roasted free range chicken, but it’s rolled in Mendo’s krispies. With herb aioli, mustard pickle slaw, tomatoes, and pickled red onions, the sandwich is quite delicious for not having fried chicken in it. All on a toasted ciabatta, the sandwich really has the qualities of a friend chicken sandwich without being fried chicken. What’s better than this sandwich? Fried chicken, obviously, but the sandwich will do if a sandwich is what you are looking for. Did you count how many times I wrote “fried chicken?” FRIED CHICKEN!
