Who doesn't love a delicious crispy chicken sandwich? I don't know about you, but I'd have one every day if I could.
Obviously breaded chicken sandwiches are surely not the healthiest. I think it's fair to say that about fried food in general too.
So instead of waiting for a cheat day to indulge on one of my favorite meals ... I decided to make a macro-friendly version that I know you'll love too!
Don't worry ... it's not deep fried or breaded. This recipe only uses seasonings and rice crisps for the "breading," which helps eliminate a ton of unwanted calories and carbs.
