How to make it
- Shred chicken with fingers like you would if making pulled pork and place into bowl and set aside.
- If using pre-made BBQ sauce, add 2 tablespoons per 1/2 cup cooked shredded chicken to bowl.
- If making your own BBQ sauce or doing mine:
- Add olive oil to pan, add onions, let saute till yellow, then add garlic and allow to cook for one minute.
- Add remaining ingredients, stir till combined and let cook for 15 minutes on a low simmer or longer.
- Add a little of the BBQ sauce to chicken and stir so that each piece of chicken is coated - don't over do it, you will want to save sauce for dipping...as I did - lol
- Toast rolls or bread slices, then rub garlic on insides of bread for extra flavor.
- Assemble chicken onto one side of toasted roll/bread then add sliced cheese of your choice - great choices include cheddar, goat, gouda, swiss, etc.
- Place on safe broiling pan or microwavable plate and heat through till cheese has melted.
- If using the microwave, you will do better to heat at 50% power for a longer period, so that the cheese gets the chance to melt slowly versus just bubble down away from the chicken.
- Add additional sauce on top of melted cheese, add the top of the roll or slice of bread - and serve with your fave side.
- Recipe adapted from one I saw on foodnetwork last week.
- I served mine up last night with NotYourMommas Garlic Rosemary Oven FF's - oh yeah - and oh no, I did not tell my doctor!
