New fried chicken sandwiches in Toronto seem to be on everyone's menu these days. These spots may have just opened, but they've already perfected the humble art of fried bird on a bun, and it's the takeout favourite's time to shine right now.

Here are my picks for the top new fried chicken sandwiches in Toronto.
