Five chicken sandwiches to eat in Denver while you're boycotting Chick-fil-A

The Franklin from the Denver Biscuit Company.
Odds are good that "chicken" isn't the first thing most people think of when they consider a sandwich. After all, there are so many other kinds of sammies that get higher billing: pastrami and Italian sandwiches, turkey and egg salad, meatball, roast beef and BLTs. Even peanut butter and jelly.

But still, there are plenty of chicken-sandwich fans out there, judging from all the white-breast-beating over Chick-fil-A these days. If you're one of those who's boycotting the chain, here are five chicken-sandwich alternatives:

5) Chicken Burger

It's called the Chicken Burger, which doesn't really make sense. But we're not going to quibble with a Colorado chain that is doing so well it just opened its eighth spot, this one in Northglenn. The Chicken Burger is made with grilled chicken breast marinated in adobo, a spicy and mildly sweet marinade with hints of cinnamon and jalapeño. It's served with crispy jalapeño strips, cilantro and house-made chipotle sauce.

You missed perhaps the greatest on at Cafe Options on Wednesdays.  Their chicken cutlet sandwich with sriracha mayo and homemade sweet pickles is to DIE for.  It must be good, considering the line is out the door most Wednesdays.  Plus, you are helping a good cause, so in my mind, that's a win/win/win.


Duo has a tasty chicken sandwich during brunch.
