Cathy’s Simple Chicken Sandwiches
Most Ohioans probably haven’t given much thought to those shredded chicken sandwiches that appear at church potlucks, graduation parties and drive-in restaurants across the state. But Donna and Tom Thorpe, creators of a website (chickensandwich.info) billed as “The Unofficial Home of Shredded Chicken Sandwiches,” have spent more than 16 years researching the creation that they say is nowhere to be found outside of Ohio. “They were just part of my growing up,” says Donna. “I was never aware that they were so unique to the state until making the radical departure to California.”
