This is a very simple and delicious chicken sandwich, perfect for a quick meal or to take to work or school. It's easy to customize and you can add your own vegetables and dressings to give it your special touch.

The chicken sandwich is a very popular dish in many places around the world, and its history dates back to the 1960s. The chicken sandwich is said to have been invented by a cook named Robert C. Baker, from Cornell University, who was looking for a way to prepare and serve boneless cooked chicken. Baker patented the idea of using breaded and fried chicken fillets on a roll, and the chicken sandwich quickly became a popular option in restaurants and lunchboxes across the country. Since then, the chicken sandwich has evolved and has been prepared in many different ways, and is a very popular dish worldwide.

One of the most famous chicken sandwiches is KFC's Double Down, which consists of two breaded and fried chicken fillets replacing the bread with two other breaded and fried chicken fillets. This sandwich was launched in 2010 and quickly became a cult phenomenon, although it was also heavily criticized for its high calorie and fat content.

Another interesting fact is that the chicken sandwich is one of the most popular sandwiches in the United States, and it is estimated that every year more than 8 million chicken sandwiches are sold in the country. In addition, the chicken sandwich is a very popular option in the United Kingdom and in many other countries in Europe and Latin America. Would you like to know more about the chicken sandwich?
