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?

Don’t want to do a store-bought chicken? The do it yourself with either of these easy yet delicious chicken recipes Rotisserie Chicken or  Perfect Simple Roast Chicken

To serve with? Your choices are practically endless. How about some Homemade Skillet Fries? Or Oven-baked Potato Chips? More in a slaw mode? This recipe for Apple Fennel Slaw is a perfect side. Beans? How about some simple Hawaiian Beans? Endless options!
