When an Instagram photo asks "Do you take this chicken sandwich to be your lawfully wedded lunch?" you have to respond with "Yes."

At first, I was like, "Of course the best chicken sandwich in Illinois is going to be found in Chicago because these kinds of lists always forget about cities like Rockford."

But then, I went to the Do-Rite Donuts & Chicken Instagram and knew I immediately had to have it in my life.

Then, when I noticed Eat This Not That! calling it Illinois' Best Chicken Sandwich while heaping all sorts of praise on Do-Rite's chicken sandwiches I understood why. Just look at this thing:

I'll break any and all kinds of diets or lifestyle choices in order to eat a chicken sandwich from Do-Rite Donuts & Chicken.

Chicago never disappoints when it comes to food options, and they take the cake for serving up an awesome chicken sandwich. Try the sweet heat sandwich for a hit of spicy chicken or the original chicken sammie with a doughnut as a bun!

While the trip into Chicago to a Do-Rite may take you over an hour from Rockford, at least you have a few different locations to choose from.

  • 233 East Erie Street
  • 50 West Randolph Street
  • 181 North Morgan Street
  • 233 South Wacker Drive
