Thanks to my friend, Lindsey, for this yummy recipe. We crave BBQ on this side of the pond.
Thanks for posting Lindsey’s great recipe, Ally! I made these today and we loved them and it was so easy. It makes 5-6 sandwiches.
4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
Salt and pepper
1 onion finely chopped
4 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 1/3 cups barbecue sauce
1/2 cup apple cider vinegar (this is the key to make the chicken taste awesome!)
Hot pepper sauce (just a dash)
6 kaiser or French rolls, split
6 ounces shredded cheese (Monterey Jack, Provolone, or Mozzarella)
Season the chicken with salt and pepper and place in a heavy pot with the onion, garlic and just enough water to cover (about 1 1/2 cups). (You could also use chicken stock for a richer sauce, or go half and half with chicken stock and water.) Add the barbecue sauce, vinegar and a few drops hot sauce and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer until the chicken is cooked through, about 15 minutes. Remove the chicken from the sauce and shred with two forks. Boil the sauce, skimming occasionally, until reduced by half, about 15 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Add the shredded chicken and heat through. Spoon the mixture onto the rolls and top with the cheese.
Just a little rambling… it’s great if you need to take a meal to someone, it works well if you want to make it in advance and keep it warm in the crockpot and it makes great leftovers.
