Add your favorite BBQ sauce to the shredded chicken. We love to use my homemade BBQ sauce. It is simple as can be and ready in minutes! I love to make it ahead and keep in the refrigerator to use in so many recipes throughout the week.

Optional Favorite Toppings

Coleslaw – We love to pile fresh coleslaw on top of our sandwiches. It adds just the right amount of texture and crunch!

Pickles – You can’t go wrong with dill pickle slices on top of these sandwiches. The bite of the dill pickles perfectly complements the BBQ sauce.

Lettuce – A fresh leaf of Bibb lettuce is just perfect.

Tomato – A thick slice of a beefsteak tomato is delicious on these chicken sandwiches.

Avocado – If you love avocado, the creaminess is amazing in these sandwiches.
