Directions for Alabama White BBQ Chicken Sandwich
- For the chicken: Place the chicken skin in a single layer in a large nonstick skillet. Cook the skin over low heat, flipping once, until it crisps up, about 10 minutes. Meanwhile, shred the chicken meat into bite-size pieces into a large bowl. Reserve the wings to nibble on or for another use.
- In a large bowl, whisk together the mayo, vinegar, horseradish, mustard, pepper and salt to taste. Add the dressing to the shredded chicken and toss to coat. Set aside to let the dressing soak into the chicken.
- For the pickle slaw: In a medium bowl, add the cabbage, celery salt, sugar, hot sauce, if using, pickles and pickle brine, and carrot. Toss together to mix well. Taste and the adjust seasonings and set aside.
- Preheat a griddle pan over medium-low heat. Butter one side of each slice of bread. Cook the buttered sides on the griddle until toasted and golden, about 4 minutes.
- Top the unbuttered sides of 4 slices of the toast with the crispy chicken skin, then top with the chicken and pickle slaw. Top each sandwich with a slice of bread with the buttered-side up. Serve.

- Sandwich – A sandwich is a food typically consisting of vegetables, sliced cheese or meat, placed on or between slices of bread, or more generally any dish wherein bread serves as a container or wrapper for another food type. The sandwich began as a portable, convenient finger food in the Western world, though over time it has become prevalent worldwide. In the 21st century there has been considerable debate over the precise definition of sandwich; and specifically whether a hot dog or open sandwich can be categorized as such. In the United States, the Department of Agriculture and the Food and Drug Administration are the responsible agencies. The USDA uses the definition, “at least 35% cooked meat and no more than 50% bread” for closed sandwiches, and “at least 50% cooked meat” for open sandwiches.Sandwiches are a popular type of lunch food, taken to work, school, or picnics to be eaten as part of a packed lunch. The bread may be plain or be coated with condiments, such as mayonnaise or mustard, to enhance its flavour and texture. As well as being homemade, sandwiches are also widely sold in various retail outlets and can be served hot or cold. There are both savoury sandwiches, such as deli meat sandwiches, and sweet sandwiches, such as a peanut butter and jelly sandwich.The sandwich is named after its supposed inventor, John Montagu, 4th Earl of Sandwich. The Wall Street Journal has described it as Britain’s “biggest contribution to gastronomy”.
