Like anyone who has lived near a Publix grocery, I fell in love with their sub sandwiches. While they have many good ones, the chicken tender subs are a notch above all the rest. They’ve even developed a cult following!
I currently live thousands of miles away from the nearest Publix, so I started making my own chicken tender subs using my buttermilk chicken tenders. They’re so good!
If you don’t want to go to the trouble to make homemade chicken tenders, you can use frozen store-bought ones that have been cooked according to package directions.
One of the best things about these chicken tender subs is how customizable they are. My favorite is to drizzle them with buffalo sauce and ranch then top with lettuce, tomato, and pickles.
Janette likes hers with honey mustard and ranch on a french roll that’s been topped with butter & garlic salt then toasted. A woman with great taste!
There’s truly no wrong way to garnish your chicken tender sub sandwich. If there’s a particular way you like it, let us know in the comments so we can try it next time we make them!

Aww amazing!!! I’ve loved following your blog – your amazing recipes (many of which I’ve tried and loved!), beautiful photos and refreshing writing! I’m looking forward to your new cookbook – what an awesome work! Congratulations!
No no no, not ranch! Any self respecting western New Yorker knows it’s Rooties or Marie’s blue cheese! Try it, at least…
You have that right!!
