The making of a BBQ Chicken Sandwich


BBQ Chicken Sandwich


Rotisserie chickens can be found at just about every supermarket these days.  Quick, convenient, and without too many additional additives makes them a good choice for a mostly home-cooked meal.  And usually, you will have some left-overs.

A BBQ chicken sandwich made with the left-over chicken is a no-brainer, adding a few embellishments makes it a treat.  Better, faster, easier and cheaper than fast food.

The BBQ sauce you use is up to you, you can use your favorite store bought brand or make it yourself. When I don’t make my own, Lindy’s Favorite BBQ Sauce, I like Bullseye Original. But there are many brands to choose from, with so many different flavor profiles. Sweet, honey, spicy.

For a quick dinner, I like to put some French’s Fried Onions on top. But when I have time, I caramelize some myself. Caramelizing onions is not difficult, but it is a bit time-consuming because it’s necessary to do it slowly, over a low flame, to allow the flavor to develop.

And I just love the smell of slow-cooked onions!

As far as the carcass is concerned…soup anyone?
