BBQ Chicken Sandwich

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.

Barbecue Chicken Sandwich


  • 2 roasted chicken breasts, shredded
  • 3/4 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.
