The Best Fast Food Chicken Sandwiches

The best fast food chicken sandwiches might not be the best thing to eat if you're watching your waistline, but they sure are delicious. From those made by top chicken fast food restaurants like KFC and Chick-fil-A to those with the right combination of sauces and toppings at the fast food restaurants we already love, like Jack in the Box and Wendy's, these are the best chicken sandwiches fast food restaurants have to offer.

Like the top fast food burgers, everyone will have their own opinion about which fast food chicken sandwich is best. That said, there are some that are just a touch better than others. Those who don't mind the controversy surrounding the chain might prefer the chicken sandwich options at Chick-fil-A like their regular chicken sandwich of spicy chicken sandwich. Others might go for those right from friend chicken restaurants like the KFC Doublicious Sandwich and Double Down, the Popeyes Chicken Po'Boy or the Church's Big Tex Tender Sandwich.

That doesn't mean that other top fast food chains don't make great chicken sandwiches either. The flavorful choices at Jack in the Box, like the chipotle chicken club, Carl's Jr., like the buttermilk ranch chicken tender sandwich, and Wendy's, with their classic spicy chicken sandwich, all among the favorites. 

So what's your fast food go-to when you need a nice crispy fried or grilled chicken sandwich? Do you head for the spice of the Dairy Queen FlameThrower Chicken Sandwich or just the simplicity of the McDonald's Southern Style Chicken Sandwich or anywhere in between?
