Glazed-pulled barbecue chicken sandwiches--NEW!
Recipe: Glazed-pulled barbecue chicken sandwiches--NEW! NEW
Makes 4 sandwiches. Can easily be doubled or tripled.
1 cup of apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup of prepared barbecue sauce (I use Sweet Baby Rays. You can make your own choice)
1 Tbl of vegetable oil
2 tsp of crushed red pepper flakes
1/2 tsp of salt
1/4 tsp of cayenne (or to taste, but this made it zippy enough for me)
3-4 cups of cooked chicken, shredded. (A note on this. You can use leftover chicken or two other options. Sometimes I poach skinless chicken breasts and then just shred them with two forks. This way I get all white meat. Or if I am in a hurry, another option is more expensive, but fast. You can buy a roasted chicken already prepped at the store. I just let it cool off, remove the skin and shred the meat from the whole chicken. This gives me about the same amount of meat).
4 buns. I use whole wheat hamburger buns for this recipe, but you can choose your favorite.
In a medium-large sauce pan put in the vinegar, barbecue sauce, vegetable oil, pepper flakes, salt and cayenne. Bring the mixture to a boil and then simmer just 2 - 3 minutes until it is hot. Stir occasionally to keep it from sticking.
Add your cooked and shredded chicken. Continue to heat until the chicken is hot too.
Serve on the buns and you are set. I serve this with good old-fashioned baked beans and French fries. Comfort picnic food that is ready in a flash.
Enjoy. Cheers! Zola
