This is really more of a dinner idea than a recipe, but when I saw it in Everyday Foods a few years ago I thought it was a great idea and I’ve been making it on busy nights ever since. The original recipe used leftover chicken from Thyme-Roasted Chicken, but I often buy a roast chicken from Sam’s Club or Costco. I use most of the breast meat to make BBQ Chicken Sandwiches and then use the skin, bones and dark meat to make quick homemade Chicken Noodle Soup another night.
- 2 roasted chicken breasts shredded
- ¾ cup barbecue sauce KC Masterpiece is my favorite
- 4 hamburger buns or rolls toasted
- Place shredded meat and sauce in a large skillet and cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until heated, 4 to 5 minutes. (Usually I just microwave the meat and sauce in a microwave safe dish until heated.) Add more barbecue sauce if needed. Serve on split, toasted hamburger buns or rolls.
This is an EXCELLENT idea! I'm claiming it, too!
What a great idea! It would work wonderfully with leftover roasted chicken of any kind as well. Will have to remember that next time I roast one! KC Masterpiece is one of my fav's as well (I'm from Kansas City, so maybe that's why I'm partial to it).
I like to make these too…it's just so easy to throw together and it tastes great!
Looks hearty and DELICIOUS!
oh i love this idea! so delish!
Nice quickie meal, Barbara! I bought a broiled chicken today, in fact.
Ohhhh I haven't had these in a long time, it's well overdue! Sounds yummy!
This looks nice and juicy, and easy 🙂
My new blog went up today and I am so excited. Stop by and check out my brand new and improved site daaaahling. I want to know what you think. I'm also doing a fab give away.
Aren't Costco chicken the best! I know I can always whip up a good, tasy meal when I have one in the fridge. Love this quick and easy sandwich
Thanks for bringing to my attention what I could do with a chicken that would be easy, fast and delicious!
A favorite of ours! I love ideas for dinners like this. My family sure doesn't help when it comes to giving ideas for what to make! Thanks!
I love how you styled the photo! We buy a rotisserie chicken almost every week and my husband always has a sandwich with BBQ sauce.
I'm always wondering what to do with leftover chicken…this looks like the perfect answer! Thanks for sharing, Barbara!
Great quick and simple recipe. The BF makes something similar with pork.
I love a simple and a good BBQ is never turned away at my house. Delicious!
Yum! Quick and easy, just as I like.
