Sometimes all you need is Barbecue Chicken Sandwiches. Made with shredded rotisserie chicken and barbecue sauce, this sandwich is all you can ask for.
You 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.
- 1 rotisserie chicken shredded
- 1 1/2 cups barbecue sauce (I used my homemade sauce, but your favorite bottle sauce will be wonderful also)
- 3 tablespoons room temperature butter
- 1 Tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
- 1 garlic clove minced finely
- salt and pepper
- 4 rolls or 8 slices white bread
Combine the butter, garlic, parsley, salt and pepper in a bowl.
Set the butter aside. The leftover butter is so good on corn, garlic bread, tossed into pasta. It is the same butter that I use for my garlic bread. Yum.
Shred the chicken.
Put the chicken into a saucepan and add the barbecue sauce. Cook over medium heat until heated through.
Meanwhile, butter your rolls. Stick them in a hot oven to toast.
Put some chicken mixture on the toasty, garlic roll.
Dinner is ready. I served mine with a side of cucumber salad. But this sandwich alone would make me very happy too.
