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.

Serving Suggestions:

    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
