These barbecue pulled chicken sandwiches have a zippy homemade sauce and are a wonderful way to turn ordinary chicken breasts into a yummy meal.
When I saw fresh boneless skinless chicken breasts on sale at Sprouts last week for less than $2.00 per pound, I bought some and made these sandwiches. They were so easy, and everyone loved them.
This recipe is super simple. First, mix up the zippy homemade barbecue sauce. Second, slow cook the chicken in half of the sauce. Third, shred the cooked chicken and return to the slow cooker with more sauce~keeping warm until dinner. Finally, butter and toast some buns, add the chicken, and dinner is served!
The sauce is what makes the chicken so fab. It is tangy, zippy & delicious. You could use your favorite bottled sauce, but I encourage you to try this one, as it is more complex than often too-sweet grocery store sauce.
To really make the sandwiches extra flavorful, top the pulled chicken with Wickles pickles. These zesty pickles are so flavorful, we eat them straight out of the jar. They are sweet, spicy, & crunchy. Best pickles ever!
Please let me know if you try these. I love hearing from my readers, so leave comments any time. Thanks so much for stopping by. Be blessed, and stay savvy!!!
