A chicken sandwich is typically a boneless, skinless, breast of chicken served on bread or roll. In parts of the world it is also known as a chicken burger or chicken on a bun.
The sandwich usually consists of a chicken filet or patty, toppings and bread. The chicken can be made with deep fried, grilled, roasted white or dark meat chicken. Shredded chicken in one form or another, such as chicken salad, can also be used in chicken sandwiches. Wrap versions of the sandwich can be made, substituting tortillas for bread.
Open faced versions of the sandwich, which feature hot chicken served with gravy on top of bread, are also common versions of the sandwich.

Chick-fil-A claims that it invented chicken sandwich in the 1940s. This claim is unsubstantiated, however the Chick-fil-A product was most likely the first chicken sandwich introduced by a fast food restaurant chain when it introduced its southern-style chicken sandwich (served with pickles on a steamed roll) to its menu in 1964. Notable vendors include KFC, Chick-fil-A and Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen, however most major fast food, fast casual and casual dining chains feature some sort of chicken sandwich.
