Ultimate Bacon Ranch Fried Chicken Club Sandwich

OK, so ask yourself, what makes a sandwich "the ultimate," in your book? Is it fresh cut ingredients like tomato and lettuce? Double stacked cheeses like colby jack on top of blue cheese? Is it perhaps a crunchy buttermilk fried chicken base? Bacon? a Fried Egg? or the pretzel bun?! Or perhaps, it's the combination of all those things together! The Sandwiches Expert, MacKenzie Smith, from About, strikes again with another insanely good chicken sandwich.
