Fried chicken and creamy coleslaw sandwich

 In Chicken, Dinner/Supper, Lunch

Crispy, juicy fried chicken is perfection on this sandwich paired with creamy coleslaw. This is the stuff your food dreams are made of.

Fried chicken sandwich

James Beard once said “Too few people understand a really good sandwich.” Amen, James. Amen. I am often looked at like I’m crazy when I tell people I prefer a good sandwich over pretty much any other food. Steak? Meh. Pasta? Pass. They don’t come close when a sandwich is done good and proper. And this, my friends, is one hell of a good and proper sandwich.

First of all: Fried chicken. Who can say no to a piece of juicy, tender chicken encased in a crisp coating? I used the same recipe I did for my Ultimate Fried Chicken recipe, I just used boneless chicken breasts instead of chicken pieces. It’s important to keep the skin on the breast though. The skin gives the chicken more flavour but also allows the coating to stick better. Pair this with creamy coleslaw and a buttered brioche roll and you have sandwich nirvana. Simple, flavoursome and absolutely kick-ass.

for the fried chicken
  • Follow the recipe for my Ultimate Fried Chicken, simply substitute boneless chicken breasts (with skin) for chicken pieces. I halved this recipe for these sandwiches, using 4 chicken breasts and half the marinade and breading ingredients.
for the coleslaw
  • 3 cups shredded cabbage (I used red)
  • 2 carrots, grated
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise (I used Hellman's)
  • 2 tablespoons sour cream
  • juice of ½ lemon
  • salt to taste
to serve
  • buttered brioche rolls
  1. Cook the chicken according to recipe instructions.
  2. In the meanwhile, combine all the ingredients for the coleslaw in a bowl and mix well.
  3. When the chicken is cooked, serve it along with the coleslaw on the buttered rolls.

    I had never thought to put coleslaw on a fried chicken sandwich before this sounds pretty dang awesome. I just had coleslaw on a pulled pork sandwich tonight and it was so delicious! I am going to try this recipe out! Thanks for sharing it!

    I gave this recipe 5 stars but I can’t say for sure that it is a 5 star recipe since I haven’t tried it out yet but it sure looks like it is going to be a five star meal!

      Thanks so much Ben! Yep, coleslaw on a fried chicken is pretty amazing. Coleslaw on anything is pretty awesome, in my opinion. 😉 Once you’ve tried this, please come back and tell me what you thought?
