When it comes to crispy chicken sandwiches, people can be picky. 

Thick buttermilk breading or a light cornflake crust? Pickles or no pickles? Spicy or mild? 

Everyone has their own preferred combination. 

Thankfully, the city is full of restaurants putting their own creative spin on the crispy chicken sandwich!
