20 Mouthwatering Chicken Sandwiches

1. Chicken Waldorf Salad Sandwich

Chicken Waldorf salad is a creamy blend of roasted chicken and mayonnaise with lots of fresh, crisp apple, celery, and buttery walnuts.

This combination of crunchy veggies and tender meat makes this sandwich a must-make. 

I like it on seeded bread, but it’s out of this world inside a fresh and flaky croissant. 

2. Chicken Caprese Sandwich

This sandwich takes the flavors of traditional Caprese salad and adds some juicy grilled chicken and crunchy bread to make a super filling and mouthwatering meal.

Sourdough or French bread would be ideal for this, especially if they have a crunchy crust.

That said, I love this served as an open sandwich on rosemary focaccia.

3. Chicken Sloppy Joes

Chicken sloppy Joes are a leaner, more healthy version of a childhood favorite.

Using ground chicken keeps things light, but when it’s mixed with the tomato sauce, you’d never know!

For added crunch, try serving these with dill pickles and crunchy red cabbage slaw. 

4. Classic Chicken Salad

Classic chicken salad is a sure-fire crowd-pleaser and will be a welcome addition to any BBQ table.

It also makes incredible sandwiches and is a cinch to make.

Use leftover rotisserie chicken for maximum flavor and keep it in the fridge for a last-minute lunch or snack. 

Serve with sliced tomatoes and red onion for a peppery crunch.

5. Buffalo Chicken Panini

If you love chicken wings, you’ll go nuts for this buffalo chicken sandwich. It’s got the same incredible flavor without all the mess!

It’s rich, spicy, and super healthy if you choose canned chicken breast. Plus, it comes together in a matter of minutes.

Since you’ll be grilling this sandwich, I suggest you use something thick and sturdy, like sourdough or French baguettes.

6. Grilled Chicken Cordon Bleu Sandwich

Chicken cordon bleu has all the makings for a fantastic sandwich. 

From the juicy chicken and salty ham to the creamy Swiss cheese and spicy mustard, this combo was made to go between thick slices of white bread.

The best part is that you can have all that scrumptiousness just by stacking the ingredients. No need to roll anything and get your hands dirty in this recipe.

7. Monterey Chicken Sandwiches

There’s no better mix than chicken, bacon, and BBQ sauce. So when you find a sandwich that includes all three and cheese, you’ll know it’s a winner!

To make this fast, go ahead and pan-sear the chicken in the same pan as the bacon. But if you have the time, you can’t beat the char and smokiness of a grill.

8. Party-Sized Chicken Parmesan Sandwiches Recipe

I have a deep love for chicken parmesan, so these sandwiches are borderline dangerous!

Not only is the chicken crazy tender, thanks to the buttermilk brine, but it’s perfectly crunchy to boot.

Don’t forget to add extra sauce and cheese to the bread, and be ready to get messy.

9. Spicy Chicken Bacon Avocado Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Take your grilled cheese game to the next level with this delicious chicken, bacon, and avocado sandwich. 

This grown-up grilled cheese is so satisfying, you’ll want a second helping, I guarantee it. 

Use pepper jack cheese for a kick or regular cheddar if you prefer. For added heat, try spreading some Sriracha mayo on the bread, too.

10. Tequila Lime Grilled Chicken Club with Chipotle Mayo

Call off the search; you’ve found your next favorite summer sandwich!

Not only does the tequila add a pleasant kick of flavor, but it also tenderizes the chicken to perfection.

And what goes better with tequila than lime? 

One bite of this, and you won’t need to make burgers for the rest of the season.

11. Mango Chicken Salad Sandwich

Mango, mayo, and chicken might not be the first combination that comes to mind, but trust me when I say you need to try this creamy and sweet sandwich. 

It’s super bright and fresh, and the tender mango pairs surprisingly well with juicy chicken and crunchy green onions. 

Keep things cool with creamy mayo and soft bread. Or add a layer of cheese and grill this for something even more addictive.

12. Chicken Cheesesteak Sandwiches

Classic Philly cheesesteaks are rich, cheesy, and impossible to resist. Unfortunately, they’re also super filling, calorific, and kind of expensive. 

This chicken twist is lighter, easier to make, and cheaper, too! 

Luckily, when you add fried onions, peppers, and mushrooms to the mix, along with plenty of cheese, they’re just as yummy.

13. Chicken Fajita Sandwiches

This spicy sandwich is for the carb-lovers in the crowd who wish their fajitas had a little more substance. 

Tortillas are great, but you can’t beat thick, grilled, crunchy bread. 

Be sure to cut the chicken and peppers pretty small, and don’t be shy with the cheese. Feel free to add spicy mayo, too.

14. Pesto Chicken Sandwich on Sourdough

You’d be amazed at how pesto can take a bland meal and bring it to life.

Not only is it super flavorful and fresh, but it’s also vibrant and loaded with crunchy goodness.

Mix that with juicy chicken and tomatoes, plus thick sourdough, and I’ll bet you’ll want this for lunch and dinner.

15. Air Fryer Chicken Sandwich with Sriracha Mayo

Air fryers have changed the way we cook, and it’s never been easier to recreate your favorite fast-food items, like this copycat Chick-fil-A chicken sandwich.

The key is to use pickle juice with buttermilk in the brine. You won’t believe that added flavor this imparts into the meat.

The spicy mayo is optional, but trust me, it’s not the same without it.

16. Chicken Parmesan Sliders

Make these for your next party and watch them fly off the plate. 

Use frozen breaded chicken tenders and ready-made sauce to speed things up.

You could even use a whole slab of Hawaiian rolls to make these in minutes. 

Bake it as one, then cut it into portions to serve.

17. Vietnamese Chicken Sandwich (Bánh Mì)

Bánh mì means bread in Vietnamese, and it’s almost always a sandwich made using crunchy baguettes with sweet, sour, crunchy, and tender fillings. 

It’s also crazy easy to make! 

Once the grilled chicken is ready, just stack it inside with pickled carrots and crunchy sliced radishes.

Add some cucumber for freshness and jalapeños for heat.

18. Grilled Chicken Sandwiches With Cilantro Lime Mayo

Since chicken can be pretty mild in flavor, you’ll want to add seasonings to bring it to life.

I don’t know about you, but nothing brightens a meal quite like lime and taco flavors. 

This chicken sandwich is juicy, tangy, and packed with spice. The cilantro-lime mayo is equal parts creamy and zesty and balances everything perfectly.

19. Chicken Enchilada Sliders

These cheesy chicken enchilada sliders make fantastic game-day snacks, but they’re also great for busy weeknights. 

Just throw together cooked chicken with enchilada sauce and cheese. How easy is that?

Add jalapeños or bell peppers for color and taste and serve with a big bowl of guacamole.

20. Ranch Chicken and Swiss Sliders

Chicken salad with mayo is creamy and tasty, but chicken salad with ranch dressing is downright sinful.

Top it with Swiss cheese herb melted butter before baking, and these will soon become your new go-to for parties. 

Add some bacon if you want extra salty goodness.
