We hope you're ready for more coverage of National Sandwich Month. Earlier this week we took a look at the best looking sandwich pictures we've posted in the past year. Today we're going to get to the meat of matter and explore 11 of our favorite chicken sandwiches in Chicago (don't worry, other fillings will get their turn). Though often derided as boring and safe, chicken can be the center of attention if treated with care. Around the city, chefs are finding new ways to get maximum flavor and deliciousness out of the bird, from elaborate smoking projects to a quick trip in the fryer.
