A really good chicken sandwich can be hard to find; so many are dry or stringy or downright boring. But great chicken—juicy, flavorful, maybe with some crisp skin in the mix—is perfect sandwich fodder. You can't really beat fried chicken on a bun, but it's just as good grilled and stacked with avocado, roasted and slicked with fat...or, well, we'll let this list of chicken sandwich stars speak for itself.

A chicken sandwich on a bun might sound like a classic American sandwich, but this Chicken Katsu Sandwich ($6.80) from Tebaya, a small Japanese place in Chelsea, does quite well against its American counterpart.
A tiny storefront tucked away on 19th Street between 6th and 7th Avenues, Tebaya is the ideal spot for when chicken katsu and Japanese-style fried chicken cravings hit.
