    Chicken Po'boys are heaven on a bun.

     Po'boys are a classic Louisiana staple. Made with a special french baguette, that's light and fluffy in the middle and crispy on the exterior, these sandwiches (according to wikipedia) were originally made with scraps and given out for free to working class men- hence the name poor boy. Usually made with seafood, or other local southern seafood, this rendition calls for a mix of light and dark meat. If you fancy mustard, I recommend a coarse...MORE creole mustard which can probably be found at your local grocery store.

    Chicken Cordon Bleu is typically made by stuffing the ham and cheese inside the breast, but for the sake of this chicken cordon bleu sandwich - don't worry about it! Stacking the ham and cheese on top the buns, popping it in the broiler, then adding fried chicken works perfectly and cuts your prep time (and potential mess-ups) in half!

    To me, a buffalo chicken sandwich is totally one of those seasonal foods that I only really think about during football season. I love how it's rich and creamy but also spicy and crispy. It's literally the perfect game day snack!

    For my go-to version I stick with this sandwich that's made with crispy buffalo fried chicken smothered in ranch and blue cheese, topped with carrots and arugula, and tucked in between a crisp and buttery toasted potato bun.

     I did it. I developed the closest thing to a Chick-fil-a sandwich that's ever existed. Its got that sweet, buttery and crisp fried chicken flavor that's so reminiscent of this southern fast food favorite. The toasted potato bun is light and airy and the pickles help cut through the richness of the sandwich. If you don't have a Chick-fil-a near you... or you do but don't want to contribute to their not-so-friendly ways, then this recipe is for you!

    Crispy curry fried chicken on a steamed bun? Yes, please.  Add in some rich kewpie mayo, tart pickled red onions, refreshing lime-y cabbage, and the bright zip of fresh mint and you've got one helluva non-traditional steamed bun. 

    Oh, and FYI, I've written this recipe as if you've got frozen steamed buns on hand - However, if you'd like to dare to make them yourself I recommend following {this recipe} from Epicurious.
