How to make it

  • Prep and cooking:
  • Quickly rinse the chicken and coat the chicken in the rub
  • Cover and let it sit in the fridge for at least 1 hour, but up to overnight would be fine
  • Smoke or roast the chicken at 250 for around 2 hours, over until the internal temp reaches 170. If roasting, make sure to cover the chicken so it doesn’t dry out.
  • In the last 30mins coat the chicken breasts in a good barbeque sauce, store bought is fine, homemade is better and let them remain in the oven for 15mins
  • Turn on the broiler and brown the chicken, both top and bottom for the last 15mins
  • While they are cooling down make the 5 slices of bacons, use medium heat so they don’t burn
  • You want it to be crispy (good texture balance) and a nice cooked red color not burnt or undercooked
  • Once the chicken is cool to handle pull all the meat and skin off the bone and put in a large bowl, you don’t want to cut the meat because you are going to pull the chicken
  • Once all the meat is off pick up each large piece and pull the meat apart, like your shredding it
  • Once the bacon is cooled break up the bacon into small to medium size pieces and put with the chicken
  • Then add about 2-4 tbsp of Barbeque sauce (depending on how dry the chicken is you may need more) Add this about a tbsp at a time, you’ll notice the chicken absorbing it because there won’t be any sauce on the sides of the bowl. You want to keep adding sauce until the sides of the bowl start showing a little barbeque sauce, which means the chicken is saturated, but not soaked
  • Cover and let sit in your fridge over night.
  • The next day take about a cup’s worth of chicken/bacon and heat it in the microwave
  • Assembly:
  • Top piece of toasted bread or hamburger bun
  • Couple rings of raw red onion
  • A couple sprigs of cilantro (roman could work if you don’t like cilantro)
  • The heated up chicken
  • a cold slice of tomato
  • Bottom piece of toasted bread or hamburger bun
  • Personally: I made 5 piece of chicken and Aimee and I each had a piece for dinner, and then used the rest to make sandwiches for lunch. I simply brought everything and assembled it in the kitchen where I work, super easy and very tasty. Had 10 people ask me what smelled so good.
