Chicken Filet Sandwich Recipe


In this post I am sharing how to make an easy Chicken Filet Sandwich Recipe.

We all love fried chicken! Sometimes you just want to put away the forks and knives, put that chicken on a fresh bun with your favorite toppings, and have a sandwich.

Everyone loves a delicious fried chicken sandwich! Am I right?!? YES! I’m a firm believer that the best fried chicken is made at home so enjoy the flavors that you love on a tasty sandwich for lunch or dinner.


I love to fry some chicken breast filets and have sandwiches. I like mine topped with mayo, Dijon mustard, cheese, thin sliced onion, crisp lettuce and pickles. The fun part is you can top them however you like. Serve with a side or chips, or just have the sandwich itself.
Great options for topping include: lettuce, onion, cheese, pickles, tomato, pickled jalapeno slices and cucumbers.
When it comes to choosing the perfect sauce for your chicken filet sandwich, mayonnaise, mustard (yellow, Dijon, or Spicy), salad dressing, barbecue or spicy remoulade are delicious options.
