Barbecue chicken sandwiches are one of my favorite things to eat. I previously blogged about the recipe I use, here. They are just the easiest things to make. The chicken is simply made in a crockpot. Then it is shredded. Easy peasy! Lazy Dayzy!
This is the same recipe but I just added a little twist.
I had some guacamole in my refrigerator that needed to be eaten before it expired the other day.
I had some leftover shredded barbecue chicken that was suffering from the same timed fate.
And I had an epiphany.
Oh, man. Barbecue. Chicken. Guacamole. Barbecue. Guacamole.
I had had a guacamole barbecue sauce at an event in October and could not get the flavor out of my mind.
And that is how the following recipe was formed.
And that is how a new word was formed.
And that is why my thighs. Are formed. From gluttonous decisions.
Shredded Barbecue Chicken from this recipe
One pack of chibatta rolls
A slice of havarti cheese for each sandwich you plan to make
One bottle of your favorite barbecue sauce
Container of guacamole
3 Tbsp. Chopped cilantro
Preheat oven to broil at 500 degrees.
MaKe the barbecue chicken according to the linked recipe.
Take the chibatta rolls (I have also used regular rolls and they work fine, too. The chibatta is easier, because it makes a flatter sandwich. This makes it easier to eat) and cut them in half. Add the shredded barbecue chicken to the bottom half of the roll and leave the top half open. Place a slice of havarti cheese on top of the barbecue chicken and then place the tops and bottoms on a baking sheet and place the baking sheet into the oven underneath the broiler for thirty seconds to one minute depending on your broiler. You just want the top half lightly toasted and the havarti cheese melted.
Remove the baking tray from the oven. Pour a little barbecue sauce onto the melted cheese. Sprinkle chopped cilantro onto the barbecue chicken. On the top half of the roll, spread a generous layer of guacamole.
Put the guacamole top bun onto the bottom bun that is covered in barbecue chicken.
And listen to your happy thighs humming.
Oh, yum! Enjoy!
Barbecamole Chicken Sandwiches are my favorite.
I will be making this recipe instead of traditional shredded barbecue chicken sandwiches from this point forth.
Now I’m off to raid my refrigerator. What else can I combine? What do we think of ham and feta?
What about Jenni and McConaughey?
“Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey!”
I like the sound of that.
