Chicken sandwich vs chicken burger

I have a question about burger terminology. Why is it that Americans have a cheeseburger, a veggie burger, a turkey burger -- but call a chicken burger a "chicken sandwich" (when it's in a burger bun, not made with sandwich bread)?

In Australia we simply use "chicken burger" for a piece of chicken in a burger bun. Same for "fish burger".
