    I don't think there is one.
    I am not a teacher.

    I am not familiar with any commonly used abbreviation for "chart" (AmE) and therefore I would use the entire word.

    If you do a key and explain that, for example, that "Cht" means "Chart", you could probably get away with it. However, Chicken Sandwich is right I think - I don't know of a recognised abbreviation for it.
