Barbeque Pulled Chicken Sandwiches

Thursday, May 30, 2013

I absolutely love making this recipe during the summer months. I tried a pulled pork sandwich at this one local restaurant two years ago. It was a really savoury sandwich, so I wanted to replicate it at home. Unfortunately, my recipe never turned out quite like theirs, so I gave up. Then a couple weeks ago, I had a few chicken breasts sitting in the fridge and I had no clue what to make for lunch. So I decided to try my attempts at a pulled chicken sandwich instead, using the new Kraft Brown Sugar barbeque sauce we bought to try this summer.

While my intention was to just make a sandwich, I think I accidentally made a really great tasting pulled chicken sandwich! While I had a hard time "shredding" the chicken, I ended up cutting it up by the end, which worked good still! This sandwich is perfect for the summer months, combined with a nice tall cold glass of iced tea and a side of sweet potato fries! Enjoy!

Barbeque Pulled Chicken Sandwiches
Prep time: 15 min        Cook Time: 30-40 min           Yield: 6 - 8 servings

- 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
- 1 cup barbecue sauce (I used Kraft Brown Sugar bbq sauce)
- Salt and pepper
- 6-8 buns (hamburger, kaiser, Hawaiian)
- Lettuce (romaine, iceberg, red leaf, etc)
- 6-8 slices Monterey Jack cheese (or mozzarella, gouda, cheddar, havarti)

1. Preheat BBQ grill to medium heat.
2. In a medium bowl, combine salt and pepper and 1/2 cup barbeque sauce. Add chicken breasts and ensure they are coated with sauce.
3. Cook chicken on grill until thoroughly cooked, about 15 minutes.
4. Shred chicken. In a frying pan over medium heat, add remaining barbeque sauce. Add shredded chicken and allow the sauce to brown a bit. This adds more flavour to the chicken.
5. Open buns and place cheese on bottom bun. Heat on grill for a bit. Add chicken and top with lettuce.

Cook chicken breast using your own method on stove top instead of on barbeque.
Add more barbeque sauce on the top bun for added flavour.
