barbecue chicken sandwich recipeYou know when you come home from a trip, you just crave a home cooked meal.  After eating out for a week, I just felt gross and wanted something comforting and something that came out of my kitchen.  The problem is that I just didn’t feel like cooking.  I spent the day at Costco and the grocery store filling my house again with food, but had zero motivation to make something that required more than 5 minutes of work.  So this is what I came up with.  I saw something similar on Martha Stewart and completely took the idea and ran with it.  Thanks Martha!

It was exactly what I was looking for.  Easy.  Comforting.  Delicious.  I will make this on nights that I do feel like cooking even!  The key is the butter that you make to put on the bread.  It just adds a bit of something-something that makes it go above a store bought chicken and some barbecue sauce on some toasted bread.
