I can’t abide breading being sufficient to qualify as bread. The “ing” is there for a reason.

No. Is it even chicken?

I’ve tried to tell them. It’s a bone paste at best. The breading is just a ruse

Does it change your answer if they’re homemade with actual chicken? It shouldn’t.

Our hierarchy is something like this I think

Sandwich
– Two bread slices
----- Ham sandwich
----- Quesadilla with two toritllas
– Multi-bread slices (e.g. club)
----- Club
----- Big Mac
– Wrap
----- Burrito
----- Calzone
------ Poptart
– Single bread covering three side
------ Hot dog
------ Folded pizza slice
------ Single tortilla quesadilla

A Sandwich since their invention in the late 1700’s have consisted of meat with two slices or bread. At their simplest. A “nugget” is meat (or bone paste) shoved in a baguette basically

There’s the Burritto -> Taco -> Quesadilla branch that needs some recognition.

@jason.goode then its as much a sandwich as a Pig in a Blanket

Pig in a blanket isn’t a sandwich. Two breads. Sandwich. One pastry rolled around a sausage and baked. Heart attack wrap

So, a wrap isn’t a sandwich? What about a calzone?

Yes. They are sub-classes of the sandwich family.

The right answer was “yes, chicken nuggets are sandwiches.” So are chicken patties.
