I love me some smoked meats! Beef, pork, chicken, you name it! One of my favorites is smoked chicken thighs. For me thighs are the way to go when it comes to smoking chicken. They’re more tender, juicier, and definitely more flavorful than white meat (even if you take the time to brine it). Smoked thighs shred easily, making for the perfect smoked BBQ chicken sandwiches.
I like to top all of my pulled meat (be they pork, beef or chicken) sandwiches with slaw, and specially my Delta slaw. It adds a great crunch and a little vinegary tang to offset the sweetness of the BBQ sauce. If I don’t have any slaw on hand then I go with my second choice: dill pickle slices. I love a little crunch with my smoked BBQ chicken sandwiches!
If I’m reaching for a bottled BBQ sauce, I often go for Sweet Baby Ray’s.
Smoked BBQ Chicken Sandwiches
- Warm the chicken with the BBQ sauce in a medium saucepan.
- Top bun bottoms with the warmed chicken and the slaw.
- And bun top and devour.
