I am sure that I speak collectively (at least for the ashkenazic population) when I say that I cannot look at another potato for a long time! Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely adore spuds, and all their different methods of preparation…mashed, baked, fried, sliced, diced and boiled. I’ll eat a potato any way, shy of raw. But me and Mr. Potato need a break. I’ve got to show some attention to my long lost friend Mr. Bread :) We’ve been estranged for some time now and I’ve definitely missed its crunchy and chewy qualities. What better way to get reacquainted with bread then in this delicious, and easy pulled chicken sandwich! In my post for pulled beef sandwiches, I mentioned how much I loved pulled-anything. Throw it on some bread and it’s absolute perfection!
Now that I’ve covered both pulled beef and pulled chicken sandwiches, besides for the other white meat that kosher people (like myself) don’t eat, what other type of pulled sandwiches can you come up with?
BBQ Pulled Chicken Sandwiches
1 pkg boneless skinless chicken breasts
1/2-1 jar bbq sauce (I like the Bone Suckin’ Sauce brand)
sauteed onions, optional
Put chicken in a pot and cover with water. Bring water to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until chicken is cooked through, about 20 minutes. Remove from pot and cool (discard water). Using two forks, pull the chicken apart. Return to pot and add bbq sauce (start off with about 1/2 of the jar, add more if necessary). Serve warm on crusty rolls topped with avocado, tomato, sauteed onions and/or coleslaw.
