The Ultimate Southern Fried Chicken Sandwich

The fried chicken sandwich to rule all fried chicken sandwiches.

The fried chicken sandwich is already pretty darn Southern as far as foods go. But add pimento cheese, peach coleslaw, pickles and spicy mayo, and you’ve got something truly ultimate.

That is exactly what the folks at Boxcar Betty’s in Charleston, South Carolina are doing with their signature sandwich, The Boxcar.

Wanting to impart the classic Southern flavors inspired the chefs to create this ultimate fried chicken sandwich. Want to make it yourself? Try this.
