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.
