If you didn’t think pre-cooked chicken nuggets or popcorn chicken could end up anywhere but dipped in a sauce, these quick fix BBQ chicken sandwiches will change your mind in a single bite. First, they definitely pass my ‘messy test’. Any good sandwich, burger, whatever you pick up to eat, has to be messy. Second, hey, it looks great! And of course last, but not least, it’s packed with delicious flavors. Crunchy slaw, tangy BBQ sauce, vinegary pickles, aged cheese and of course, chicken, all come together in a great, easy sandwich!
I wouldn’t really change anything about these quick fix BBQ chicken sandwiches. I could eat them every day of the week. If I get bored with them (something that seems highly unlikely) I just use a different BBQ sauce. Maybe on Monday I feel like a little sweet. Maybe make it a bit spicier each day. By Friday, I’m all over the super spicy smoked habanero BBQ sauce! But the rest of the ingredients stay untouched, unchanged. As simple as they are, these are great sandwiches.
I recently discovered Blue Plate mayonnaise, which I think is the best around. If you can’t find it locally you can pick it up online for a fair price.
Also try my smoked BBQ chicken sandwiches. They’re not quite as easy to make, but like these sandwiches, they taste absolutely amazing!
