Are you a fan of a chicken sandwich? For the longest, I never understand the hype over a chicken sandwich honestly. Then I had a really good one and now I completely understand. I actually started learning different chicken sandwich recipes and cooking them at home for myself and when I have people over. From grilled chicken to fried chicken and more, the chicken sandwich is a go-to.

Taste Atlas curated a list of some of the best chicken sandwiches in the world! That’s right, the world. Two South Carolina restaurants actually made this list which makes it even better for us. It’s something about the Carolinas and our cooking that just keeps us at the top of the chain sometimes. From cities in South Carolina like Charleston and Hilton Head to North Carolina cities like Charlotte or Raleigh, plenty of food spots to give a try. So, if you’re a chicken sandwich lover this list might be the place for you. Check out some of the best chicken sandwiches in the WORLD and start planning your foodie tour.

  • 10. The Commodore - New York City, NY

    I have never been to New York, but them making this list is not surprising. New York is one of the culinary capitals of the world with plenty of food options for you to try. The Commodore is a spot in Brooklyn serving up some tasty chicken options. Their chicken sandwich looks to die for! You can get a hot breast sandwich, mild breast, or grilled chicken club. You can even switch it up and do a chicken biscuit for breakfast. Whew, talk about some great options!

  • 9. Honey Butter Fried Chicken - Chicago, IL

    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.

  • 8. The Bird SF - San Francisco, CA

    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?

  • 7. Zunzi's - Savannah, GA

    Savannah, Georgia is certainly one of the best spots when it comes to food. I have gone frequently and love their food options. The seafood is top tier, but I guess I may need to check into the chicken sandwich next time I go. Zunzi’s is serving up one of the best in the world. 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.

  • 6. Astro Doughnuts - Washington D.C.

    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?

    Here we go with South Carolina. Charleston is always the go to when it comes to food and here we are at Boxcar Betty’s. They also have a location in Charlotte, located in Optimist Hall.

    Yeah, Los Angeles of course is going to be on this list. Birdies in LA is home to one of the best chicken sandwiches in the world.
