BBQ Chicken Sandwiches

I probably don't have to tell you that we're the kind of family that loves to cook.  Would you believe though that some days, we just don't want to step into the kitchen.
Well, let me introduce you to one of our best friends, the rotisserie chicken.
Now, the easiest way to serve one is right off the bone and sometimes we do.
I was feeling like a sandwich though and came up with this combo.
This is a really nice way to have a delicious dinner that your family will enjoy without having to spend a lot of time in your kitchen.
I actually had about one cup of the bbq chicken leftover and used it the next day for bbq chicken pizza.

BBQ Chicken Sandwiches
This recipe couldn't be simpler.  Add more or less of the chicken and bbq sauce to your liking. If you want to get a little fancy, coleslaw on the sandwich would be really good!

1 rotisserie chicken, shredded
*Your favorite bbq sauce (purchased or homemade)
Toasted buns

Place the shredded chicken in a 2 quart sauce pan add as much sauce as you like (we like it really "saucy".  Stir well until heated through.  Place on toasted buns and serve immediately.

Balsamic BBQ sauce
This is one of our favorite sauces.  The kids made it one year for Brian for Father's day.

1 Cup balsamic vinegar
3/4 cup ketchup
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 garlic clove minced
1 tbs. worcestershire sauce
1 tbs. dijon mustard
salt and pepper

Combine all of the ingredients in a small nonreactive saucepan.  Whisk until the mixture is smooth.  Simmer over medium heat until reduced by one third,  15-20 minutes.

This picture is like something from a Food Magazine.

I have really enjoyed hanging out on your blog this evening.

I'm going to send your link to my daughter, as I know she would love this recipe, and the many I have seen so far. You really are an adventurous family.

God Bless you more,
